Pebble tile is an organic solution to flooring tile that is carbon neutral, beautiful, and friendly to the environment. These are some of the many reasons that people are installing pebble tile flooring in bathrooms, showers, fireplaces, and many more places. Whether you decide your interest is in natural pebble shower floors, bathroom floors, pool covering, or the like you will be happy to know that you are buying a flooring product that is not only beautiful but also completely organic. These gorgeous tiles are made from pebbles scooped from beaches. They have been tumbled smooth by nature itself.
Once the pebbles are collected they are mounted to a mesh backing and come to you ready to be mounted and installed as flooring.

Our polished pebble tile line is a gorgeous option we present to the consumer who loves the polished finish to stone rather than a matte, natural finish.

We carry polished white pebble tiles, as well as polished mixed river, polished tiger’s eye, black, amber, and red. This gives the customer many options to choose from. When choosing, a customer should consider a few things. The first is color. Many people opt for a neutral color that will go with any decor as the styles change such as polished white pebble tiles or polished black pebble tiles. Although these are going to be the most versatile, the other polished colors are going to go well in almost any space as well since they are made from natural stone and nature goes with anything.
Polished white pebble tiles, black, red, amber, or the like give an updated look to a space and provide a finished look that comes from polishing and not from a glaze.

Is it comfortable to walk on?
Answer: Yes! This is a big concern when installing pebble tile on the floor whether indoor or outdoor. Our customers love the feel of our pebble tile beneath their feet.

Is it easy to clean?

When putting in a new pebble tile floor there are a few things you should decide on to ensure you get exactly what you want. The first thing that needs a decided upon is the type of walking surface you like. Traditional pebble tile will give you an uneven walking surface that some love and some do not. A sliced pebble tile will give you a more flat walking surface. Another decision you should make is whether to go with natural or polished pebble tile. Here are a few pictures to help you tell the difference. This first one is a natural sliced pebble tile flooring
This second picture is a sliced polished pebble flooring
As you can see in both pictures the sliced polished pebble flooring has a shinier surface than the natural product does. This is really a matter of preference but it should definitely be considered before installing the tile in order to get the look you are going for. Polished and natural pebble tiles come in both traditional and sliced varieties and this was just one example. The last decision you need to make when buying pebble tile is the most obvious and it is color selection. This can be difficult to choose so make sure you talk with your contractor and a few friends in order to decide on color and ensure you get a product that you will love for years to come.
In order to get the look you want we suggest you get a few samples before you make all these decisions. Get a few samples of each variety. You may find that while you were leaning toward a traditional natural pebble tile, once you get the samples you may find that you actually love the sliced polished pebble flooring. You just never know until you hold it and walk on it which one will strike a chord with you or look better with the decor in your room. So the best way to make decisions is to touch, see, and walk on a few different varieties of pebble flooring before you buy.

It can be exciting and fun to remodel your shower. There are many people who are taking this project on these days and they are looking for updated options to make their shower beautiful, functional and perhaps a bit fun as well! When looking into remodeling your shower one of the first questions you may come across will be about what tile you want to use. Do you want to tile your shower floor or put in a shower floor pan? Most people would choose to tile their shower floor if given the option. Not only does it look better but it holds up better as well. There are no seams to come loose and begin to leak with time and the shower floor is one of the first places to break down with wear and tear over time. This is the reason why many people choose a quality tile instead.
We have many customers who are choosing pebble shower flooring for their shower remodel project. The reasons are many for this. For one, pebble shower flooring gives a beautiful modern look to your shower that won’t ever look ‘dated’ since it is a natural product. Rocks simply don’t go out of style. Pebble shower flooring is also durable. The pebble’s come from nature so they can withstand all the elements that nature or you can throw at them including walking on them and water. There are no seams to break down with age. Pebble tile just simply holds up year after year. The third main reason our customers are choosing pebble shower flooring is because this flooring is very comfortable. Many people love the natural feel of pebble tile beneath their feet.
Whatever your reason may be for installing a pebble shower floor you will be happy you did. Pebble tile will give your shower a natural beauty that will last a long time and you will be able to enjoy the feel beneath your feet for a long time to come. Pebble shower flooring is a popular choice for good reason. Check out some images of more pebble shower flooring in our Pebble Tile Shower Gallery!
Sealing your shower floor pebbles is an important step in keeping your pebbles looking great for years to come. Before you grout your pebble tiles we recommend you seal them first. This can be done with a good quality penetrating sealer. Don’t be cheap when buying sealer or you may come across problems with it in the future. If you have questions on which are the best quality you can go to www.consumerreports.com or ask your local home supply store professional for advice on the best sealer for pebble tile. If you want a deeper color to your stone you may also decide to use a natural stone color enhancer to enhance the look of the pebbles you have bought.
After you have sealed the tile you will adhere the shower floor pebbles with a thin set mortar to the ground at lengths of 3 square feet at a time until the area is covered. There will be to need to make any cuts as the stones are mounted on a mesh backing that fit together like a puzzle. Should a stone come loose during the adhesion process simply put more adhesive on the stone and slide it back in its place. You do not need to smash the pebble tile into the adhesive, gentle pressure will be sufficient.
After the adhesion has finished (meaning you waited the time specified on the product before you grout) it will be time to grout your pebble tiles.. Use an epoxy grout and begin the process of grouting your pebble tile small sections at a time. Use a stiff bristle brush to scrub excess grout off your pebbles after the grout has dried.. Then here we are again. It is time to begin sealing your shower floor pebbles after grouting. This second seal will make a huge difference in the look and quality of your pebbles.

Pebble tile is sourced from pebbles that have been in water in their natural habitat. This makes pebble tile a great option for any tile project that will come in regular contact with water. This is one of the many reasons why people choose pebble tile for projects ranging from outdoor pools and waterfalls to shower floor tile. Water and pebble tile get along just fine! When installing pebble tile in an area that will get regular exposure to water you should remember that in order to maintain its beauty you will need to seal the pebble tile. This isn’t because your pebble tile can’t take the water, it is to maintain the look it currently has without fading. When installing shower floor tile or another tile that will get regular water use you really can’t find many natural products that will be good for the environment and also stand up to the water. Pebble tile is one of the few that will do this.

Pebble Tile Shower Installation Steps
1 ) Mask the Drain and Edges.Use easily removed painter’s tape to give protection to the drain before starting the tile work. Also place tape around the shower stall just above the height of where the tile will sit to offer protection to the shower surround.
2) Apply the Thinset. Start in a back corner of the shower and spread thinset on the shower floor with the flat edge of a .25″ x .25″ square-notched spade. Then use the nicked edge of the spade to form ridges in the material holding the spade at roughly a 45-degree angle. Cover an area identical to about 3 sheets of the pebble tile.
3) Set the 1st Pebble Tile Sheet. Press the 1st sheet of pebble tile into the thinset, butting the sheet as near as feasible to the walls. Apply a little pressure to the sheet of tiles to settle it in the thinset.
4) Continue Tiling. Continue to spread thinset and add sheets of tile to the floor, aligning the sheets to interlock. Mix thinset as needed. If there is not room for a full sheet, remove stones as needed from the sheet and put aside, then trim the mesh backing with a knife or scissors and set the leftover portion of the sheet as usual. Also use this method to set the tile around the drain. Optionally for a perfectly straight look a wet tile saw can be used to easily cut the pebbles. It helps to turn the sheet upside down during this process.
5) Tap the Pebble Tile in Place. On top of the tile, place a straight, flat board that covers many tiles and carefully tap it with a mallet to thoroughly set the tile and make sure the pebbles are all at the same height.
6) Seal the Pebble Tile. Natural stone pebble tiles must be sealed before grouting. Check the instructions of your selected sealer and be certain to seal the pebble tile before grouting to make grout removal easier in step 8.
7) Apply the Grout. Spread grout across the tile employing a grout float. Hold the float at a 45-degree angle, working the grout into the areas between the stones.
8) Clean the Tile. Taking care not to drag grout up from between the pebbles, wipe away the haze with a wet sponge. Wash the sponge frequently to keep it clean. Let the grout cure completely according to the package instructions. Employ a clean material to wipe any remaining haziness from the surface of the pebbles.
9) Seal the pebbles and grout. It is important to re-seal the pebbles along with the grout to prevent against mildew and stains. This will also ensure easy cleaning of the pebble tile for years to come with any mild household detergent. For the best results, implement the instructions for the explicit sealer used.

Pebble tile is a natural construction material that uses various small pebbles that are generally larger than normal-sized gravel and smaller than cobblestone. They are well-known for their resilience. They are great materials when used for outdoor projects even when continuously exposed to the elements. With high-quality pebble tiles, you have an extensive choice of colors and pebble size.
During the production of the pebble tiles, the pebbles are sanded to a round and smooth finish, and are bound together with grout to create blocks with a coarse appearance and texture. Smaller size pebbles are what experts recommend, since it is because of the greater level of comfort of the small pebbles over the larger ones. The soles of your feet soften as you use the pool over long periods of time and this can cause pain or discomfort.
