Tile School: How to choose the right material for your bathroom

Tile School: How to choose the right material for your bathroom


Are you working on a bathroom project? Are you unsure of which of our materials are best suited for the job? We're going through our different tile materials and how they can be used in a bathroom setting below: 

Brick:
Our Glazed Thin Brick can be used in a bathroom setting, but because it is more porous, it should not be used on bathroom floors or steam showers. 

Brick can be a great alternative to subway tile and can look modern, classic or rustic depending on how you install it: 

Brick Shown: Cotton

Handpainted Tiles:
Our Handpainted tiles are all made on our 70% Recycled Clay Body, thus this material can be used in any bathroom application. 

Tile Shown: Old Cairo in a custom colorway created using our Color-It Tool

Tile Shown: Diamond Contour handpainted tiles in Neutral Motif

Recycled Clay Body: 
Our Recycled Clay Body is ideal for any bathroom project. Made from 70% recycled materials, it can be used for any bathroom application, including steam showers. 

Tile Shown: 8" Hexagons in Adriatic Sea on the walls and Mini Star and Cross tiles on the floor. 

White Clay Body: 
Our White Clay Body is not suitable for steam showers, but can be used for any other bathroom application. Just let us know if you are using a White Clay Body color, so that we can pre-seal it for you!
