No - it's ceramic tile made to look like wood.

The shower and bathroom floors are composed of many pieces of stone and therefore have grout joints. The stone has a high coefficient of friction, which means it is slip-resistant.

do you mind me asking what type of stone, that looks like wood and has a high coefficient? i am told you have to have small cuts for shower floor (4x4 or 2x6).. that would take away the look of a wood floor :-) thanks for the speedy reply.

The bath and shower floors are stone, by Buffalo Stone. See http://www.buffalostone.com/stones/library.html, and http://www.buffalostone.com/stones/popup_pgs/teakwood-sandstone.html. Check out the link -- its sandstone, sealed with a product such as one made by Prosoco. Review their water repellents, and call a technical rep to discuss what might be appropriate for your particular proposed installation. http://www.prosoco.com/. And re size of the pieces, since the shower is a "mono-slope" towards a linear drain at the end of the shower, the pieces don't need to be so small.

Love the wood appearance of the shower floors. Feels Zen.
