    We are getting a curbless shower. Our contractor is recessing it into the floor joists (needed to have it engineered into the floor for strength). Works well with at least a 4' length shower. No doors necessary, but face shower towards back wall or use rainshower head. Tile slight slope towards drain. We are tiling using a kerdi system to ensure no leaks.

    This is a beautiful space. I love the use of tan pebble tile on the shower floor. Gorgeous.

    Are the tiles lining the shower the same as the floor tiles in the main bathroom area? Porcelain I assume?

    LOVE DumaWall! We have used it to transform ALL of our baths/kitchens in rentals for very little money and time! Super easy to install! Looks like REAL stone tile!

    We installed a similar pebble tile in our bathroom, but went with a flat stone option...for those worried about it hurting their feet.

    Showers are always sloped to the drain...there would be no reason to slope it to the back wall unless that was where you decided to locate the drain.
  • jtman9200

    Was the newer styled drain used that lines the back wall? I really like the way that they look. Sometimes it takes me a second to find the drains when they aren't in the middle of the floor. http://www.ridgeglass.com/Shower-Enclosures-Lake-Wales-FL.html

    It is not so much a question of the drain system. Rather one of waterproofing and sloping to assure drainage.

    The drain can be a regular shower drain or a linear drain.

    When designing or building a barrier free shower, we recommend waterproofing the entire floor of the bathroom (hot mop is great).

    When floating for tile, the tile setters need to pay close attention to sloping the floor so that flow lines are positive and all direct water to the drain(s).

    on remodels the entire floor is either elevated a bit, or if possible the shower area is recessed if allowed.

    I wonder if the flooring in front of the shower is soils or cement?

    When you transition from the tile to the pebbles, you do not have a lip to contain the water from the shower. How do you get the drainage to run right when you cant raise the floor?

    I'm curious about the floor. How do you get the curbless look in a basement bathroom? Did you raise the floor and then tile?

    Just looking at the picture it looks to be a 5x5' shower with a 2' wide storage shelf. Tiles on the floor look to be 2' square.
