Would adhesive tile work for a shower floor?

Hi. Could anyone tell me if a 'sticky back' floor tile would be ok to use on our shower floor to cover an awful brown mark? I was planning to cut a shape out of it.. Thank you.

  • Hi, Kathy!

    Adhesive floor tiles are not recommended for areas where water is present. The adhesive will not hold, and the area will not be sealed. If you're just trying to cover a mark on the shower floor, why not use one of the non-slip gripper type of pieces made for bathtubs and showers? If a big enough piece can be purchased, it can be cut into the shape you desire! I hope this helps!

    Peel and stick tile is not rated as being a proper water-proof material for use on shower flooring, where it is constantly exposed to water and moisture. You will be inviting problems with mold and bacterium accumulation.

    Do you know what the brown stain is caused from?

    I would recommend that you check into using non-slip decals to cover the spot. Use a quality brand name product such as Rubbermaid for best adherence. Preparation of the surface and following application instructions is important for maximum durability.

    Hi lifestyle homes. Our bathroom floor is stone, covered with non-slip floor covering that is used in hospitals. The brown mark i thought may be damp under the covering. Council says not!. . Thank you.
