@Jenny: It's too evenly spaced and the grains seem alike so I suspect it's either regular vinyl or luxe vinyl or porcelain. Difficult to tell by the photo except I doubt it's natural wood product all the way through.

However in the Q&A (click on photo and look to the right side of page) the designer says it's natural wood and not laminate wood. I'm sure it's sealed if it is.

A really nice shower with niches, seat, and tile-and-frameless-glass walls is so much nicer than a shower/tub combo. I designed the new master bathroom 13 years ago, before knee replacement surgery, and it still looks current. No tub. Plenty of storage, granite counters, porcelain tile, brushed nickel faucets and accessories, and reach-in shower controls meet all my requirements. I had a single licensed contractor, and I had purchased new kitchen cabinetry (large variety of cabinet sizes and uses), all fixtures and controls, sinks and toilet and had them on site before demo began. The tile work was done by his preferred subcontractor, and the granite was the last element, installed by a referred fabricator. The shower plumbing can be accessed through a closet wall so no tile needs to be removed if the controls ever need repair.
