Tiles in the bathroom may sound just as original as florals for spring. But just like with every good floral print, the tile's wow factor comes down to the one you choose. Do not be square! The penny tile (also called a penny round) is a small tile in a round or hexagonal shape that can help you make a visual impact in your bathroom.

Penny tiles are often seen in historic houses, but we also start seeing them in the hippest coffee shops and the most popular bars. Why? They add an interesting aesthetic, they are extremely versatile and – like any good tile – they are also easy to maintain in even the wettest areas.

Use penny tile in the bathroom

Let's talk about the versatility of these small tiles. You can find them in traditional ceramics or porcelain, but they are also available in more interesting materials such as glass or metal. And do not worry, before you become desperate about the work that goes with laying an essentially inconspicuous mosaic. You can buy cent tile that is already arranged on a gauze back, so all you have to do is add around the established pattern. It is a small trick where people think that you have invested a lot in creating a first-class look for your bathroom.

The revival of the cents tile

This is not the first time that the penny tile is in the sun. The tile – especially the hexagonal variant – was popular in homes throughout the country in the early 20th century. That is while you often see it in historic houses, or in houses where people try to create a vintage feeling.

That does not mean, however, that this tile style only works if you go for a retro feeling. Choosing a single cent tile can give a sleek, minimalist look. On the other side of the spectrum, choosing a wide range of colored tiles and arranging them in interesting patterns yields maximalism. It is clear that this is a versatile design function. Let's look at some bathrooms that use pin tiles to make your creative wheels spin.
