Subject:  Tile floor now, add shower later? Date:  10/6/2012  7:34 AM

Hi, all,

I did buy a house finally, about three weeks ago I closed on it. There's an added on bathroom which was carpeted over the original concrete slab; it contains a large Jacuzzi, but no shower. I'm definitely tearing up the carpet, but I'm uncertain of what to put down. I know that ceramic tile would wear better in a rental property, but I'll want to add a shower before I move into the house in a few years. I'd hate to do the tile now and then come back and tear it up to relocate stuff. I've thought of luxury vinyl tiles but they'll cost about as much as the ceramic.

I really can't afford to do the remodel that it would take to add a shower right now.

Can y'all share some ideas with me on how to do this, or what might be a good way to go?

Thanks, Rita
