Envy-inducing encaustic tiles to bring your bathroom alive with colour and pattern.
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. Popular in the Victorian era, they are often used in historic buildings for a period look, but there are also striking modern options.
Great for lifting the atmosphere of a room, they add heaps of personality with colour, warmth and texture.
