cheaper alternative to ceramic tile for shower
expanding toilet room to full bath in basement.
plumbing and waste not an issue. two sides of the room and floor are concrete. window is already there.
i would like to cover the shower and the concrete with something that is easier and cheaper than custom tile.
i do not want a pre-fab unit, but, the shower is planned to be an open type,no door,maybe curtain, walk in without barrior.
venting not an issue. with a concrete floor and two of the three walls of shower also concrete does anybody have an alternative to tile that is not as expensive.
i like tile but the area is about 150 sq.ft. in total plus floor. i haven't a clue as to costs of covering. does having concrete for walls and floor make a cost difference?
this is to be a functional bath, not a spa, just a take dirty clothes off and clean up room before entering the civilized part of the house. any advise is appreciated,
