Informed Decision Bathtub to Shower Conversion
March 30, 2013
Before we commit to tile, what are the other options ? After hours and hours of searching on Houzz and the net, I found only the briefest mention of "solid surface" shower enclosure - kits I assume, and no articles on the quality of prefab enclosures or types,or wall panels. Where can I find information on materials available for shower walls and flooring? Likely choose tile, but
as we have the entire house to remodel, would like to be able to consider all options.

In higher end homes around here (Greater Tulsa, OK area) I am seeing a lot of shower enclosures made of slabs of granite, marble, and even composite man made materials. My master that hasn't ever been totally redone is made with the sheets of cultured marble. I had looked at the house before it was for sale and it was basically falling apart. When it finally went on the market, they had taken it apart, and put it back together with new silicone. It really looks as good as new, despite the dated cultured marble. I guess I should say it "functions" as good as new, lol. I know there are tons of commercially available kits for showers available, and some people seem to prefer them because they are so much easier to clean.
