Question

GROUTABLE Vinyl tiles in shower?


I know this sounds crazy, but why wouldn't it work?

I'd like to install vinyl groutable tiles for my shower walls, and use acrylic grout. (over Green/Blue/Purple drywall)

I would think this would be water tight. I'd probably go with a full shower pan instead of tile floor, just to be safe.

So am I crazy to try it?

Re: GROUTABLE Vinyl tiles in shower?


I would never use any form of drywall in a shower area no matter what there ads say.
Judging from just my own experiances I've been payed many times to remove those cheap plastic tiles that where all the rage back in the 70's.
Most often there main reason was all the cracked tiles from being bumped over the years.
Will it likely work, yes, will it look like cheap plastic tile, also yes.
Done right a real tile job will add value to the home and last for generations.

I've used vinyl sheet flooring in shower stalls before (floor and walls) which works fine. Not sure I would use vinyl tile though. Too many joints to go wrong.
