It would certainly give me more colors to pick from if I used tiles.
This route gives me zero choices. I can't believe they don't make
fiberglass paneling with the classic 4x4 ceramic tile appearance in
something other than white (almond, bone, neutral, boring, whatever the
hell they want to call it). I'd take blue or green or
yellow....anything, I'm really not that fussy. Screw it, I'll drive
myself crazy trying to find this crap if it doesn't even exsist.
Actually, that WAS the renovation right there. So that's one less thing
I have to do I suppose. If I were a married man we wouldn't even be
having this conversation. I'd be buying her $15,000 granite shower
walls (that's the only bright side to this).
