Use Smaller Tiles on Curves
Depending on your shower bench design, you may need smaller tiles to handle the curves. Smaller tiles handle curves much better. By having the tile onsite before the shower’s bench is designed, the angle of the curves and natural arcs can be worked out.
Be Careful When Selecting Mosaic Tile
Pick out a mosaic tile that offers at least 95 percent contact from the tile to the backer board. You need that contact from the wall to the tile! You don’t want to trust the glue on a sheet of tile.
Use a Second Tile Choice to Make a Feature Wall
Adding a second tile choice as a feature is a great look I see more and more these days. Be careful about using small ledgestone tile, unless you know your water does not leave staining on your tile. Ledgestone achieves the stacked-rock look, with the rough face of the stone facing out. The rough surface means that it’s slow to drain, and water with a heavy mineral content will build up quickly.
