For today we would like to present a breakthrough development, which unites metal and cast stone in a tile less then 2mm (~1/16”) thick! Decotal Tiles are the result of a unique patent-pending process which utilizes advanced technologies, deep material research and meticulous handcraft. Each tile is made of EPCTM (Engineered Polymer Concrete), a highly durable warm feeling material, used for the first time in tiles, which combined with a reflecting metal decoration, creates a luxurious contrasting effect.
Metal graphics are unlimited and can be custom ordered to any required shape opening the way for bespoke designs and art works. The type of metal and plating used depends on application type, specific physical and aesthetic demands. The current offer includes over 50 graphics/ patterns which can be used in sizes ranging from 200mm x 200mm up to 600mm x 600mm in a square or rectangular forms. Custom graphics/ patterns, tile sizes and stone colors are available on demand.
Thanks to their ultra-light weight and minimal thickness, Decotal tiles can be applied directly over existing tiles, eliminating the time and costs of removal. They are perfect for overlaying existing surfaces with minimal disruption and do not require sealing or any expensive maintenance other than regular cleaning with soap & water.

We end today’s post by highlighting powder rooms with traditional style. Charming wall tile, an arched window and a clawfoot Astonian Luxor tub grace the light-filled bathroom below. While subway tile adds a modern look to this next featured space, striped curtains and (once again) a clawfoot tub put their traditional stamp on the room. In case you’re curious, that fabulous shower rail can be purchased at Lefroy Brooks. Be sure to check out the brand’s lovely bathtubs as well. The silver feet on this clawfoot tub make it a true standout. Surround it with black tile, and you have a powerful contrast that can’t be ignored.
Benches can be great for increasing storage space, given that you can find options that come with cubbies, shelves, and drawers. Check out this bench from Porch.com that has lots of room for extra towels. Another bench featured again on BHG has a drawer pullout where you can store all your accessories. Everyone knows standing up in the shower is the norm, but if you have a disability, or if you just want to safely be able to wash the soles of your feet, a bench in the shower can really help! Keep that in mind for your next shower remodel. Here’s a beautiful marble bench that extends from the subway tile in this shower, featured on BHG. You can get really creative with built-in shower benches by using different types and colors of material, like this example of a black tiled shower from Carla Aston. Or why not just keep it subtle? Extend the tile to include the bench, like this white and pink bathroom featured on BHG.
