This is the foundation of your shower. A solid shower base brings a certain peace of mind with it: you don’t have to worry about grout maintenance or cleaning. If you choose to go with a base over stone or tile, there are a few things to think about as you choose. Size, shape and material are the obvious ones, but you may also want to consider the height of the threshold where you enter and exit and the where the drain is placed. Like most bathroom fixtures, bases are available in a range of colors and styles to coordinate with the overall space.
