Disadvantages to doing jack and Jill bath floor in penny rounds?

threeapplesAugust 10, 2012

The toilet room has its own door, vanity area can be seen from both bedrooms when their doors are open, and shower room is connected, but has a door. I want a vintage look. Are there disadvantages to doing a penny round tile in all 3 components of this bathroom?

I'm no tile expert but I think it would be fine. It would be good traction I think. I would do a grout that was darker than white, and I would do epoxy grout unless there is a big reason not to. I've heard that epoxy is not that hard to install and that it is less likely to stain.

It would look great but that would be a lot of grout to maintain. (Cleaning grout around a toilet has never been one of my favorite tasks.) Have you considered 2" hex ceramic tile in a matte glaze? It gives you that vintage look with less grout.

DD2 just installed a hex (2") and dot tile and used Delorean Gray grout on walls and floors. It's gorgeous. At first, she was going to do Charcoal or a dark brown, then changed to Pewter... then changed again to DG since it was a tad lighter. I liked it wet - looked more like Pewter dry, but it's her house. lol
