Shower/bath wall covering idea:

Good Morning Everyone,

As usual, I am browsing the forums with my morning coffee. I was looking at a thread regarding a wet head and had a thought....

Earlier this year we ran away from home for a few days for mental health preservation.

We were driving through Coeur d'Alene Idaho and, at the recommendation of my nephew, stopped at this funky little motel called Bennett Bay Inn. They have themed rooms that are quite creative and a bit funky. It is run by a really nice young couple. We really enjoyed our 4 day stay. We had only planned on stopping overnight...

The shower in the room caught my attention as I had just finished a bathroom remodel and had tried and tried to find a sheet material that I liked for the shower surround. I gave up and used tile. It came out nice but was a bit expensive and a lot of work.

The material in the shower at Bennett Bay looked like what I had been looking for and could not find. You can see a picture of it on TripAdvisor. (I tried to snag the pic but could not.)

The next time I ran into the owner I asked him where he had found the shower surround material? Turns out it is vinyl sheet flooring. He told me that they put a waterproofing membrane up (Redguard) and then used flooring adhesive to put the material on the walls. He also told me that they had used a heat gun to help soften the material for the corners.

I could also tell that in some of the corners they applied some kind of filet in the corner before the material went up to "soften" the bend.

The end result was nice enough that I am considering using it in my bus.

I thought someone out there might find this interesting.

S.

linoleum !

We are building a new small house, 24 x 28.
I have been thinking on the shower..............
Construct it to whatever shape desired.
Then have LineX come in a spray the floor, walls and ceiling.
All at once and seamless.
LineX comes in many colors, grippyness, hardnesses, etc.

Don't do that!!!

Just when I thought that I had my mind made up you share another cool ideal and now I am thinking "wow that could work great".

I could finish out the whole bathroom and then coat everything in a neutral bedliner coat then add accents in another color. Walls, floor, shower & cabinets all coated in a waterproof & washable material.

I wonder if you can mix the smooth & textured in varied amounts to come up with different levels of texture?

LineX does have a wide variety of coatings.
And they do custom coatings.
Go visit the corporate website.
