How to Tile a Shower

When I decided to replace my shower I knew exactly what I wanted. Nothing short of a spectacular tiled shower with rainfall shower head and body jets would do. However, it is extremely expensive to have done so I decided it was time for a little DIY tile work.

I had already tiled several floors in the house so I was pretty comfortable with the tiling process. What I wasn’t comfortable with was the amount of water that would be testing my DIY tile job on a daily basis. Now I am not one to shy away from any project so I decided I just needed some more knowledge. I turned to the internet. After doing a few searches on how to tile a shower, how to tile a shower floor and how to tile a shower wall I found that the wall was not too bad, but the floor was going to be a little more work than I could take on. I decided not to tile the shower floor. Instead, I bought a nice shower pan from Swanstone with a tile lip on it.

Over the next few posts I will go over the whole job from start to finish with quite a few pictures. Hopefully it will help give someone else the confidence to take on a project such as this. To begin, here is a before and after shot of the master bath.

I was looking around online about DIY tiling, when I saw this blog entry of yours from the search results. With our home, here in Florida, we've already bought a few sets of ceramic tile (Clearwater, FL) and a few sets of bathroom tile (Tampa, FL). We've already thought of a fantastic design idea that we will be adopting- a beach house. I'll go over your other entries and learn how you did it, and surely your post will be very helpful. Thanks a lot for posting your DIY chronicles. More power to your blog!
