White Wednesday – Five White Bathroom Floors that Depart From the Expected

The Rivershell Collection from Artistic Tile is available in a few different shapes, including this 1” hexagon. Made from fresh water mother of pearl, this iridescent creamy white tile is a luxurious alternative to what most people think of when they think of a white hex tile.

Pebble tile is always a fun option, but many people are concerned about how the round stones feel underfoot on a bathroom floor. The perfect solution is a honed pebble tile, which gives a flat finish. The one shown in the photo below is one of my favorite styles because the elongated shape of each piece seems more interesting than small round pebbles.

White Haze from AKDO comes in both honed and polished finishes. As a white vein cut marble, it is a perfect alternative to the Carrara and Calacatta that we often see because it is unexpected and can easily fit into a modern or contemporary design because of its linear pattern. The shower walls in this bathroom are also part of our AKDO line, using Thassos white marble and Enchant Thassos with Silver and Pewter Mirror

I love this fun and unique bathroom floor. The irregular shape of the main tile is reminiscent of a mid-century Flagstone floor, but dressed up by the small bits of marble in the grout joints. The Calacatta marble mosaic in the shower is a great addition because the styles complement each other even though they seem so different. Using the two inch mosaic on the walls lets the veining in the marble create a large amount of variation and visual interest. The curbless shower and linear drain help to keep the design clean.

Ferrara Vein Cut Honed from Artistic Tile is available in both a 12×24 Field tile and this Chevron Pattern. This beautiful and interesting marble has irregular linear veining which gives it a lot of personality while feeling very organic. This bathroom combines the angular Ferrara with the soft wave of the Claridges Thassos and Rivershell (And yes! The same material we showed you in the beginning of this post is available in a field tile which can be custom water jet cut into various mosaics.)
