Question Slippery Shower Tile

I would greatly appreciate direction on how to deal with the dangerous slippery tile floor in my custom built shower. I have tried rubber bath mats, but they too slip. The tile floor is beautiful - ideally I would like to find something similar to a clear epoxy-type coating that creates a textured non-slip surface. This would allow the beauty of the tile to still show, while providing a safe surface. Any suggestions and/or brand names/shopping locations would be GREATLY appreciated. My local Home Depot has no suggestions other than unsightly grip strips.

Looking forward to some great suggestions! Many thanks in advance.

There are mats available with suction cups to hold them in place.

About 20 years ago my parents had a non-slip surface added to a tub in my childhood home, so I know a product like this exists for porcelin tubs. Don't know about for tile. Maybe call a tub refinishing place and see if they have any suggestions?

Coatings on tub and shower surfaces tend not to be a long-term durable option. There are non-skid coatings available with limited warranties, i.e.

Why is it slippery, what type did you use in there?, your supposed to use one that is fine for shower floors.

Talk to any janitorial supply company. Such products are used in restaurant kitchens all the time. I have also seen such products come up on Google Ads around the different website forums.

slippery shower tile

Hey all, I was reading your posts last month and I did some more research.
This is the stuff I found it's called Johnny Grip, I bought some and put it down in my
kitchen. It's only been 2 weeks but so far we love it, my husband Frank mopped on it on
for me but he said it was easy to do.
This is their site Slippery Tile? Fix it Easy! Johnny Grip Non Slip Tile Treatment

I think this is what the OP wanted. Something gritty you can put on the tiles.
