Things to Consider: Updating Your Bathroom with an Ultracompact Shower Surround

Ready to give your bathroom an upgrade? If you’re considering installing an ultracompact shower surround, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, choose the right material. Ultracompact surfaces, also known as large format porcelain tiles, are a popular choice for shower surrounds due to their durability, resistance to stains and water, and easy maintenance (minimal grout lines). Brands like Florim, Lapitec, and Neolith offer a wide range of styles and colors to choose from.

Next, consider the design and layout of your shower. Ultracompact tiles are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, from traditional squares and rectangles to more unique hexagon and fish scale patterns. Decide on a look that fits your personal style and the overall aesthetic of your bathroom. There is an endless array of colors and patterns available in this space.

Installing an ultracompact shower surround is a big undertaking, but with proper planning and attention to detail, it can be a rewarding DIY project.
