Why limit yourself to a boring white acrylic shower surround? Create something beautiful and functional with tile!

We LOVE designing custom showers. We believe that your bathroom is your retreat and it should reflect your own sense of style. That's why we're all about creating tailored tile showers that work great (no leaks) and look good doing it! At Red Deer Carpet One our team of designers and Red Seal Journeyman tilesetters can turn your dream shower into reality! Stop by our showroom across from Best Buy in Southpointe Common to get started!

Why is tile better than an acrylic surround?

Because it looks better. Endless design possibilities await your creativity, a tiled shower or tub surround gives you the freedom to craft a shower that reflects your personality and style. Unlike acrylic or fiberglass surrounds, tile boasts an unmatched resistance to wear and tear, guaranteeing an investment that stands strong against the test of time. Embrace the beauty of craftsmanship and durability as our skilled artisans create a personalized oasis tailored to your unique style. Acrylic surrounds come in a very limited number of sizes, so you need to design your bathroom around them. Tile showers can be as big or small as you'd like, and you can incorporate niches, lighting, benches, and even heated floors and walls into them!

But what stops a tile shower from leaking?

What stops tile showers from leaking is the proper installation of a waterproofing system, like Kerdi. Our Schluter Certified Tilesetters will ensure that a waterproof barrier is placed beneath the tile, preventing water from seeping through and causing leaks. At Red Deer Carpet One, we will only install tile showers with a Kerdi waterproofing system. With our professional installation, you can have peace of mind knowing your custom tile shower will be watertight and durable for years to come.

How much maintenance does tile require?

We want to make sure that your tile looks fresh and top-notch for years to come. It's a good idea to seal the grout every year or so, depending on how often the shower is used. This will keep it strong and prevents any water seepage. We have stocked products that will make sure that you are fully equipped to maintain and care for your tile. Each tile has its unique maintenance needs, so we suggest reaching out to your designer for specific guidelines.
