Concrete bathroom floor tiles provide a long lasting and incredibly durable surface finish that will be enjoyed for a lifetime! Concrete tiles (also commonly referred to as encaustic tiles) have a rich history with their roots dating back to ancient times. Thanks to their characteristic patterns and colouring, these tiles rose in popularity in the 1800s, becoming a staple in architecture and design of the era. Since then, encaustic tiles continue to be a popular option in both residential and commercial applications with a vast range of impressive solutions available to choose from.

Are Concrete Bathroom Floor Ties Safe for use in the Shower?
Although concrete tiles can be used as a bathroom flooring solution, they are not recommended for use as a shower base. This is because certain ingredients found in soaps and shampoos for example can damage and discolour their surface, even if the tiles are sealed. Concrete tiles will naturally develop a patina over time, adding to their exquisite charm and character however, if used as a shower base, their finish can be damaged and as such this application is not recommended.
