Material for bottom of shower niche?

2 years ago

Tile guy is here! I was planning on Schluter strips all the way around the niche but he said that could be a waterproofing issue and water could run back between the seam between the strip and the tile.

Waterproofing is my number one concern.

He suggested using my regular bath tile (12x24 marble look porcelain) along the bottom, sticking out a bit.

But that will show an unfinished edge when you view it straight on.

On another bathroom remodel, there was bullnose and the tile guy used that around the edges to finish it but there is no bullnose with this.

Or would it be best to use a piece of my “similar” quartz countertop material? It won’t be a perfect match but since it’s a small area, is that the best way to go?
