In today's busy world, clients are
constantly on the lookout for easycare
products. Whenever I'm doing
bathroom designs, one of the most
frequently asked questions is, "Isn't
there something besides tile with
grout that I can use in my shower?"
People do not want to spend their alltoo-
short leisure time cleaning grout.
I often recommend cultured marble
as an alternative to ceramic tile.
Though it's not as impact-resistant as
solid surfacing materials such as Corian,
Fountainhead, or Avonite, cultured
marble is considerably less expensive.
When cultured marble was first introduced
it was widely regarded as an inexpensive
product and not very attractive.
It also came in a limited variety of styles
and colors. That has changed, however.
