In this wet room (sometimes unfortunately called a roll-in shower) tile work gives all the visual cues. The changes in pattern and color of the tile itself create not only beauty, but help people with low vision... even help keep the kids in the "shower" area while a parent can sit comfortably on the tile/stone seat and monitor.
