Timeless Terrazzo Tiles

Terrazzo tiles have long been a favourite choice in the home, offering a stylish yet timeless aesthetic that can pair well with a range of design styles, colours and materials. First created as a means of using up excess materials from the stone and glass industries, terrazzo tiles continue to be made in the traditional way: Assorted chips of stone or coloured glass are randomly scattered in a wet cement tile to create the uniquely speckled style that has become synonymous with this particular tile design. Terrazzo tiles will offer a timeless look while recalling historic design styles making for an ideal solution when looking to add a retro touch to your bathroom design scheme.

Positano Terrazzo Look Tiles

Made in Italy, the Positano collection includes a selection of versatile neutral colour options that will easily complement a range of materials and colours in a retro inspired bathroom.

Encaustic Look Pattern Tiles for a Retro Inspired Bathroom

Authentic encaustic tiles (also referred to as cement tiles or concrete tiles) can be used in the bathroom to add a strong element of texture, colour and pattern in your design, Although these tiles will provide a long lasting and incredibly durable finish in the bathroom, they are best avoided for use as a shower base tile as exposure to pressurised water as well as certain ingredients found in shampoos can discolour the tile’s surface. Instead, you can use encaustic look tiles; these tiles are made of a porcelain material and have been specifically designed to emulate the look and feel of an authentic concrete tile, allowing for an excellent alternative in these sorts of applications.

Handmade Look Porcelain Tiles for a Retro Inspired Bathroom

Handmade tiles will show variations in colour, shape, texture and thickness as a result of the hand-making process. These variations add to their charm and warm aesthetic, creating a tactile and welcoming experience in the bathroom. As can be expected of a handmade product, these tiles can be quite pricey however, handmade look tiles offer the next best solution! Although these collections are machine made, they will still feature variations between one tile to the next to enhance their handmade appearance, allowing this designer look to be achieved at a different price point.
