Extreme penny tiles

Mina of the blog La Résidence! wanted to share with us her newly renovated white penny tile bathroom. I don't think I've ever seen so much penny tile in my life...and I freaking LOVE it! I cannot wait to get my hands on some when I get to redo one of my bathrooms. Anyhoo, they were so clever with space planning - with alot of plumbing going on in the walls they hid it all by building a shower bench, which has all the plumbing running above and below it. They also built 3 niches to store all sorts of bathroom necessities like towels and shampoo, and a 'shower tower' which had to double as a water barrier since they did not want to add a shower curtain or glass door. It's fantastic. Kudos Mina for all the hard work that went into this FAB bathroom!

Uh...no. It feels like you're surrounded by white bubble wrap...or in a padded room. Sorta creepy.

I love this look. The SAX Hotel in Prague has the same penny tiles (floors, walls & ceilings too) in their lobby bathroom. It feels both futuristic and 1960's.

I would hate to be the one that cleans all of that...especially if it is used daily, or by kids! yikes! but also very fun.

How on earth do you clean that?!?!

I wouldn't mind cleaning it, if it were my bathroom! Looks cool.

Love the look!!!! No cleaning of stains on glass.
Just gives it a very solid feeling. No gimmicks you do not need in a bathroom

Grout. ODL. All it takes is one unsealed seam... no, no, no I will not live with a grout brush glued to my hand...

Very, very clever idea! I absolutlely love it, and it's got me thinking............

It looks very similar to a lino that I have on my floor, easier to clean with no grout. Just wipe it over.

I'm blown away....I think it's amazing. I think it would be easy to maintain if the proper steps were taken upon completion. EXCELLENT job!

Hiya. We used an epoxy grout for our penny tile bathroom. It's a premixed urethane grout, which never needs to be sealed. Doesn't stain. And it's easy to clean. Cheers, Mina.

Are these the pennies from Mosaic Tile Stone? Where can I find these?
