    Default All Tile Bathtub?

    Can this be done or is there a reason I never seen it?

    I don't know about an all tile bathtub but my parents have an all tile shower. I'm sure it could be done but I doubt it would be comfortable to sit in/ relax in.

    sure it can be done, I've seen it several times, it will be super difficult to do curves in it through, you would most likely end up w/ all square angles/corners, I suspect you would have to do a full pan (similar to shower floors) as well

    For reference I know Moby had one in his house when they filmed Cribs....can't seem to find a pic

    I'm not worried about the comfort factor or jets etc. This is for a spare bathroom, and I really don't want to buy another tub when I can just tile the whole damn thing..

    You want to tile an existing tub? I'd think it could be done but you will need small tiles. That would take a long time. For the time and money i'd just throw a liner over your existing tub or have it re glazed.

    No No.. Create a whole new tub. Frame it up, and tile it out.

    I believe this tub is all tile. It's a good look if you ask me!
