The photos below will give you a perspective of how the project needs to flow. Once the cabinets are installed the tile phase can start. If you have a wood subfloor like this project you will see we have to add a concrete Hardi-backer board to the floor. This product is glued and screwed and will prevent the floor tile from cracking. The shower walls and shower pans are the vital part of any shower. This is where the water proofing and truing the walls (floating the walls with concrete materials for a true level and plumb system) takes place. If you don’t do this the tile work will look unacceptable, the margins will not be true and the joints will not be flat.
