    I own this bathroom but it was the previous home owners who installed it. There was no water softener installed when the house was renovated and the sealant (despite being professionally cleaned and replaced when we moved in 4 years ago) doesn't seem to help much. The underfloor heating and ventilation are not sufficient to dry the floor for several hours after a shower so much of the floor remains wet a lot of the time, not only is this impractical but limescale and general soap deposits are a nightmare to remove and the floor always feels dirty. It made for a stunning photo when it was installed but I would never choose pebbles again.

    Thanks for your comments Julia. It's a shame to hear, 10 years on, that the pebble flooring hasn’t been the easiest to maintain and isn't looking its best. As I stated in my previous comment a water softener is recommended as limescale is such a problem in the South West of England and I know from experience it’s very difficult to remove and would be particularly challenging on a floor that is undulating and where water cannot run away so easily such as pebble flooring. Underfloor floor heating probably does need to be turned up a bit higher or left on for longer to dry the floor out in the wet-shower area as the water can’t run away so easily as on a smooth floor. Although the shower tray has a gradient and the floor is tiled to the slope it’s unavoidable that due to the shapes of the pebbles water may gather in tiny pools within the stones, so laying down a thin cotton towel or bathmat to absorb the excess water after showering would help speed up the drying progress significantly. Being natural stone the tiles also need resealing with a penetrative and surface sealer every couple of years (or as required) using a FILA product or similar.

    I’m sorry to hear a softener wasn’t installed on this project and that this has affected your experience and opinion of pebble floors. With the right maintenance and preventative measures they really are a wonderfully tactile and beautiful material for bathroom floors.

    Hello. The pebbles are not cut and come whole. They are supplied fixed on a mesh-backed sheet (approx. size 300x300mm). They were supplied by Spanish supplier Porcelanosa. Mandarin Stone also supply a similar product and several natural pebble colours are available including, blues/greens, pinks/nudes, greys/slates. Thanks for your question :)

Look at electric underfloor heating This features a series of electric wires beneath the final floor finish. The lifespan of an electric system is 25 years, according to Seira. “It’s also stated that the electric systems can last a lifetime, depending on whether the floor covering is changed or not, and how many times,” he adds. “Obviously, the more you tamper with floor finishes, the more chance there is of the system getting damaged.” The disadvantage of an electric system is that it takes slightly longer to heat up, but once heated provides cost-effective and evenly distributed heat.

Could the idea of pebbles be used somehow as an edge to a shower?
