I am a huge fan of concrete in bathrooms. I find the smooth surface warm and soft to touch, the subtle differences in color pleasing to the eye. Best of all, there are no seams, no grout – just a smooth lovely surface. It’s even better if you can install a radiant heat under it. Concrete can be poured or troweled in place for floor and wall use. There is also a wide selection of concrete sinks, tubs and shower pans. Many fabricators will adjust the dimensions and can produce custom designs as well.  Good source is
