When thinking of table top epoxy, most people envision decor like furniture, tables, and epoxy countertops. These are the most common types of projects, after all.
But there are two other project types that we find particularly striking when handled properly: epoxy bathroom floors and epoxy shower floors.
Epoxy is often used for flooring
Decorative epoxy flooring may be uncommon, but epoxy flooring in general isn't. Many homeowners will have their garage floor coated in epoxy to protect it from a variety of damaging elements.
For bathroom floors, though, aesthetics are the primary focus. Since epoxy is more than sturdy enough to handle typical foot traffic, you just need to make sure that you plan out your project carefully and pour it in a controlled space. Once it's cured, you'll be good to go. We recommend having professionals handle epoxy flooring projects, unless you have a lot of experience with epoxy.
Epoxy's moisture resistance makes shower walls a viable project.
Because cured epoxy is water resistant and won't absorb it, using it for shower walls (or bathroom walls in general) can be a great way to add some color and artistic nuance to your bathroom space.
The best way to go about this would be by mixing in color pigments to create patterns and hues that appeal to you. UltraClear Epoxy sells a wide variety of mica powder pigments and liquid pigments that can be mixed into the epoxy resin to provide these effects before it's poured.
Alternatively, some users will keep the epoxy clear, and instead use the substrate itself or embed small objects for visual charm. Take a look at this epoxy penny shower, for example:
You can do a lot with this concept, because as long as the epoxy is fully sealed, you won't have to worry about what lies underneath.
