    Depends if you want it as a wet room or a shower tray. If the former make sure you get a low slip tile if you don't want to go flying. You can use a former, but they are easy enough to screed to falls. Always plan a fall greater than you actually need, often it works out less when you come to do it in reality Trays are usually easier to install as you don't have to dig up the floor if you plan it carefully and messing up the tanking in a basement is never the best idea. You can always set a tray on a base to improve the clearance.
