One of the questions that we get most often from clients is whether encaustic tiles can be used in bathrooms. The answer is... a resounding yes!
In fact, from our experience, encaustic tiles are extremely popular for bathrooms. It makes perfect sense, it is a great opportunity to add colour and pattern to a room with limited possibilities of decor.
Provided they are properly sealed (which is the golden rule for encaustic tiles, regardless of where you are placing them), these tiles can stand the regular splashes of water that are to be expected in bathrooms.
We love the combination of encaustic tiles with regular, more traditional bathroom tiles, such as in these bathrooms from two of our clients:
And is't it great how encaustic tiles always can make a statement in a bathroom? We believe in many cases, the colour and pattern of them, "make" the look.
If you are considering encaustic tiles for your home, you can find more info on sealing and laying them on the Tile Nitty Gritty section of our website. You could even have some fun having a go at our Interactive Tile Chooser.
Encaustic patterns are very popular these days amongst porcelain/ceramic tiles too. Look at this gorgeous bathroom tiled with our Picasso Star porcelain tile that we found via Design-Milk:
There really is no reason for bathrooms to be boring!
