The shower is done!!

We are super excited to share an amazing product with you today that played a huge part in our bathroom remodel.

When replacing our shower, we were not looking forward to the whole hot mop process.  It’s not just the objectionable smell of the tar, but there’s a great deal of smoke and it can get to be very expensive.
My husband began researching other options and ran across Tile Redi.

  Tile Redi is a shower pan with an integrated drain and curb.  It has a six inch tall splash wall and is waterproof,  leak proof and resistant to mold.

 On the same day that you have installed your shower pan you can install your tile, marble or stone directly onto the pan surface. 

Our contractor watched the installation video which can you see here and went to work! It cut back on his time and the ease of installing was a piece of cake!
Shortly after the fire, Ray and I demoed the shower down to the bare cement floor.
Our contractor installed the pan and a beautiful handy niche.

The drain comes with the pan, it just needs to be lined up with your existing pipping. You choose where you would like the drain; right, left, center or custom.

The niche is perfect for shampoo and soap which we tiled right over using glass.

Right after the pan was installed they began to lay the travertine on top.

Can you see the slope? The pan comes this way, no water  puddles means no mold!


We now have a beautiful shower thanks to Tile Redi and our amazing contractor!
