Subway Tile Shower Bench


I have a bath that's getting a curbless shower with hex tile on the entire bathroom floor, and subway on the shower walls and bath wainscoting. What would you do for the bench?

I did one similar and we did the floor tile on the curb and bench. It looked ok. Trying to find a pic...

Re: Subway Tile Shower Bench


Vertical surface gets the same tile (subway) and then match the counter on the top of the bench?

It's a pedestal sink. But I was thinking of doing the bench with quartz anyway. I think I can match the hex floor pretty well. Sort of going for keeping the aesthetic of this 1928 house.

Slab of stone is an option.
