Bathroom encaustic tile ideas

Envy-inducing encaustic tiles to bring your bathroom alive with colour and pattern.

Get the look: The metro tiles are by Walls and Floors. The floor tiles were bought from Tons of Tiles.

Encaustic tiles have long livened up kitchens and hallways, but these colourful, repetitive patterns are also making their way into the most stylish of modern bathrooms. Floor-to-ceiling metro tiles and Victorian-style encaustic tiles (above) on the floor put a period spin on this modern wet room.

They’re not just for floors – also consider using them to make statement walls (above) or to completely cocoon a modern shower room.

Encaustic tiles are made of two or more colours of clay, which are inlaid together to create a striking pattern.

Get the look: The floor and wall tiles are by Topps Tiles. The basin is by Fired Earth. The brassware is by Aston Matthews. The wall light is a vintage Belgian piece – find similar at In House Junkie. The paint is French Gray estate emulsion by Farrow & Ball.

Popular in the Victorian era, they are often used in historic buildings for a period look, but there are also striking modern options.


The white metro tiles along this back wall completely blend into the background, offering a simple, bright wipe-down surface that lets the Crittall style doors and encaustic tiles do the talking. Get the look: The steel and glass wall is by Space Exploration Design. Try Mosaic del Sur for similar floor tiles. The taps and shower are by Barber Wilsons & Co. The bath is vintage – try The Albion Bath Company for a similar style.
