Cool and Contemporary
In the master bath, floor-to-ceiling large-format porcelain tile gives the appearance of Carrara marble, with textured and smooth lines staggered laterally to create interest and suggest depth. Sleek aluminum edging at the top and around the windows defines the space.
The marble look continues inside the spacious steam shower, where the smooth version of the bathroom tile is used to create a built-in, heated bench for relaxing. Matte silver hex tiles on the floor are repeated overhead.
Smooth and Serene
This accent wall and niche feature a tranquil gray penny-round tile, infused with an “eye-drop effect” reactive glaze that creates a subtle variation in tones for additional dimension.
Diminutive pebbled mosaic tile creates a distinctive, textured backdrop for this vanity wall.
Living on the Edge
In the historical portion of the house, the bath was inspired by the original, multipaned windows. The muted geometric design floor tile contains faux distress marks to bring a vintage vibe to the space.
These black and white matte-finish peak hex tiles can be installed in several ways to create various patterns, including the one shown here in the laundry room.
Fun and Funky
The powder room just off the mudroom called for some family-friendly fun, and these bold, street-graffiti-inspired tiles fill the bill. With over 60 different designs, you can create your own unique mix-and-match look.
Here at the dog-washing station, penny-round tiles create a special call-out for the furriest family members.
Restored and Refloored
One of our favorite rooms in the house is in the basement, where the craftsmen of KARP Associates painstakingly restored the original beehive oven. After repointing the brick and creating a mantel from an original beam, the finishing touch was this colonial-inspired, ochre- and sepia-toned extruded porcelain tile, laid in a herringbone pattern. A few comfy chairs and an area rug make this one cozy spot to curl up with a good book.
