shower tricks and tips
When it comes to showers, details matter.
Whenever I cut the tiles around a shower drain, I use a
diamond file to put a small radius around the edges. This
provides a nice finished edge and ensures that you don't cut your toes!
Many homeowners want to have corner shelves installed in their new shower. When installing these, I always take an extra step to ensure that they are securely bonded to the wall. As pictured below, I cut grooves into the back sides of the shelves. This allows the thinset mortar to better adhere to the shelf and therefore the wall.
Another tip for shower shelves is to install them at a slight downward angle. This enables the water to shed away from the wall, preventing pools on the shelves.
