View Full Version : Creating tile curb on acrylic shower pan

04-02-2015, 11:23 AM

I have an existing acrylic shower pan. The curb is ~4"h x 4"w x 60"long. I was considering tiling just the curb exterior and top. The existing integral shower pan curb seem very rigid.
How bad of an idea is this? Would be nice (looking) to tile the whole pan but that's probably not going to work judging from other comments I've seen.

I've posted here before but this is a different project/bathroom.

What I mean by "curb" in the raised portion of the shower pan shown toward the bottom of the photo. Where the shower pan meets the floor.

I wouldn't try to tile any part of that pan. I don't think it would bond very well.

I'm wondering if one could Kerdi-Fix or Sikaflex some Kerdi to the curb (heck, even the whole pan) and then tile? Is that a crazy idea? :crazy:

Just leave it the way it is. You didn't mudset and tile the floor....why would you try to do something on the "prefab" curb? Pretty generic looking....but it is what it is.

I'm with the gang, I'd leave it as is.

O.K. Thanks for the input. It is generic/bland so I though I'd try to dress it up a bit without much complication. I didn't think it was a very good idea but you never know unless you ask. This forum is a great place to ask.
