We began the install on the bathroom floor last week at the flip house in Vegas. I had been searching for a geometric pattern tile and found a great one at Home Depot. During my search I stumbled across a bunch of great porcelain and ceramic tiles that look like authentic encaustic cement tiles but for less money than you’d pay for the real thing.
We’ve seen cement tiles everywhere in recent renovations throughout the design world and I love the look of them all. These bold patterns look fab in a bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, sunrooms, you name it. Like a rug, there’s something really fun about bold pattern underfoot, it makes a statement but is less in your face then when used on the walls (although I love that look too.) I wish I had a dozen bathroom remodels on my plate because I’d be sure to use several of these cement look ceramic tiles on the floor!
Note several of these are marketed as Merolo Tile at Home Depot and as Somertile at Overstock so you’ll see some repeats if you do a search on those sites. Many of these are less than $2 a tile, which is such a deal to get the look of encaustic cement tile for less!
It’s good to be home! I spent yesterday in my pajamas with the rain falling down, it was so relaxing. I hate the idea of braving the crowds at big box stores, but I will be doing some shopping downtown to support some local businesses today.
There’s the most charming Christmas shop we visit and it’s tradition for the family to pick out a new ornament every year. Other than that it’s more quiet time and more holiday decorating around my house, cue the Christmas Pandora playlist! Favorite links from the week below (tree image: target holiday collection).
