Extreme penny tiles

Posted on Fri, 16 Jul 2010 by KiM

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!

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

Waw, a great make over

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?

I love it–whoever installed did incredible work.
