Question

"metal" tile on shower floor


Does anyone know if stainless-look tile can be used on a shower floor? I am considering using 1X1 stainless look tile on my shower floor. The guy at the flooring store said he thought it would be too slick. Any thoughts or suggestions. American Olean makes something called Artistic Elements Metalworks in a 1x1 stainless stone surface. I am considering something like this.

Should be fine. there needs to be grout, so I cannot see small tiles with alot of grout being too slick

I think it would look cool, but a metal floor tile probably would be slick, especially when wet in a shower pan.

It would be a lot better as an accent, maybe in a clip pattern.
