Tadelakt Finish can be used for shower ceilings. Alternatively, the Stone Finish with a coat of Beeswax Protective Sealer can be used as a shower ceiling finish in non-steam shower applications. Stone Finish is easier to apply, is water-resistant as well, and looks similar enough to Tadelakt with little noticeable difference.
Niche Shelves, Floors, Bench Tops, & Curbs
Tadelakt applied on horizontal areas in showers are at a higher risk for damage, including but not limited to: staining from pooled water that discolors over time, staining and etching personal care products in water or drips, and chips + nicks from high wear and high traffic.
Damaged Tadelakt niche shelves, floors, bench tops, and curbs may result in dysfunctional Tadelakt and aesthetic issues. Users assume all corresponding risks and responsibilities for use of Tadelakt on horizontal areas areas.
Use of tile, stone, steel, and other more durable materials are recommended for horizontal areas in showers.
