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 to not have a noticeable difference.
Niche Shelves, Bench Tops, Floors, & Curbs
Use of Tadelakt on horizontal areas in showers are at higher risk for damage from staining, etching, and chipping. Damage may occur from the setting, storage, dripping and pooling of personal care products with unknown problematic ingredients on the horizontal areas, and the potential for high wear and high traffic.
Damage to niche shelves, bench tops, curbs, and floors from staining, etching, and chipping may result in increased risk of compromised Tadelakt functionality and aesthetic continuity. Users assume all corresponding risks and responsibilities for use of Tadelakt in these areas.
Use of tile, stone, steel, and other more durable materials are recommended for horizontal areas in showers.
