- Project Name: Custom Burmese Teak Shower floor and Bench Top
- Manufactured by: Carib Teak
- Project Date: November 2022
- Wood Type: FEQ Burmese Teak Hardwood
- Location: Palm Beach Gardens, Fl
- Project time: 2-4 day
We worked closely with the contractor on the job to ensure the floor was more accessible for the client. They were remodeling the existing master bathroom to elevate the style, design and accessibility of the shower area and bathroom.
The client was interested in warming up the bathroom with the natural wood elements of the Teak. The bench was existing and wanted a warmer feel instead of the cold tile that was existing on the bench.
When making the bench, we wrapped the front edge of the bench to cover the rubber feet and create a more complete and finished look.
Project Details continued
In working closely with the contractor the customer was in need of making this floor in two pieces for ease of removing and cleaning the underside of the floor.
We used FEQ Burmese Teak in each batten and runner for support. The contractor provided us with the exact dimensions of the shower and we came within 1/4″-1/2″ variance of his dimensions allowing the floor to fit snuggly into place.
The beauty of Teak Hardwood is it is perfect in shower or outdoor application for its slip resistance and durability. It has a natural silica built in to help prevent slipping in wet areas. If properly taken care of the product can last upwards of 15+ years in lifespan. We typically leave the Teak shower floors in their natural state however if the customer prefers a sealant we suggest applying a Food Grade mineral oil to the floor to help with sealing the floor. This application will darken the wood initially but will lighten over time depending on the use of the shower.
