Build An Easy to Maintain Shower

A key to building a shower that looks great for years is to build it so it is easy to maintain. There are a few basic consideration when designing a shower. Most people only go as far as the pipes are in this wall, and the drain is in the floor. Personally I don't like to take  a lot of time to clean my shower after every use.   I use a squeegee and quickly go over the glass and shower walls just before I get out of the shower.  It takes very little time and keeps the shower looking great.  I come in every week or two and clean everything with the repellent wash. That's it.

Lots of people get get excited about how great their new tile looks, that they fail to pay attention to some small things which can be a big deal. Listed below are a few things to avoid.

1) Water Puddling

Avoid water puddling. First of all you should have a slope of 1 to 1-1/2 degrees into the shower on all flat surfaces such as the curb or seats. Make sure that the drain is the lowest point of the shower. You don't want to have a puddle of water right around the drain. The shower door is going have water running off it onto the curb. Without the slope on the curb water can build up on top of the curb and escape the the outside.

2) Bull Nose Tile

Bull-nose tile should be on top of the curb with the side tiles tucked under them. Doing it the other way will probally hold some water on the curb in the grout lines and is asking for water damage.
