Hi folks,
Just wondering if 8" x 8" floor tiles can be used for a basement shower enclosure - walls and floor. Not sure I'll do it, but, just looking at options. Regards, Iceman

No problem using floor tile on the walls..but you can't put an 8x8 on the shower floor...you have to have some slope down the drain and you can't bend an 8x8. Use a 2x2 mosaic instead.

Amelia here again! It looks as if you and I are working on the same types of projects and you are ahead of me quite a bit. Would you mind terribly if you and I corresponded a bit about tiling and things. I'm young, strong and enthusiastic, but experienced I am NOT. I'm a pretty sharp cookie and I learn quickly, but it always helps to have experienced advice. You have been asking a lot of questions that I wanted to ask, so I was just wondering? Thanks a lot!

You might want to visit John Bridge's web site for almost any question you have on tiling. He also has a forum now.
