No Tile around the bathtub, what can I use?


I'm renovating my master bathroom. I expanded the master bath to now have a stand alone shower and a freestanding bathtub. I wanted to only tile the inside of the shower area and use wanescotting around the bathtub. I'm concern about mold and moisture around the bathtub which would get little usage to be honest, but I don't want mold. What can I do to make the walls waterproof as well as limit my risk of any mold damage?

I saw 4'x8' sheets of textured vinyl at menards that might fit the bill. 3 different textures too.

Unless you splash like a tuna in the tub, I wouldn't worry about it.

I would agrree. But steam vapor from the tub will lay down some moisture. If you have a ceiling vent be sure to run it for a while after using the tub.
