The grate assembly is in two pieces; the grate and the adjustable frame. That's what I like about Schluter's linear drain. The frame is set in mortar. You can install it before, during or after...

The wood look tiles I mentioned don't cut well because there is too much tension in the body of the porcelain bisque. A manufacturing issue. Some have it, some not as much; in that series. ...

I love those classic floors! You can restore it to like-new condition with a little bit of work. Yes, that is unglazed porcelain. I bet the grout is as almost as hard as the tile. ...
