Maddox Bathroom | Inspiration

April 5, 2017

Since this is the only bathroom in our house it needed to be beautiful and a workhorse for our growing family. I wanted it to be serene enough in its appeal that I might actually take a bath but also utilitarian in terms of easy cleaning and ample storage.


I love a pretty white bathroom and had my heart set on using beautiful encaustic cement tile found in many parts of the Southwest and Mexico to accent an otherwise white canvas. Unfortunately, these tiles are a pain to source and cost a fortune. I blame Pinterest for making me fall in love with these! Not only are they expensive but the durability of ceramic tile trumps encaustic far and wide, and with this being the only bathroom I couldn’t live with the possibility of the cement chipping with wear and tear. This decision was made easier when I found some 8″ hexagon tiles in a mosaic that resembled the look I had hoped to achieve with the cement ones.

We plan to tile the entire shower and bring the tile up to chair-rail height around the rest of the room. Because it’s a small space the idea is to bring your eye up to accent the tall ceilings. I’m planning on using a textured subway tile to keep the room feeling casual and warm.

We plan on installing a new, slightly larger recessed medicine cabinet (the larger mirror will cause the space to feel larger). Also we will replace the wall-mount sink with a larger white vanity complete with an under-mount sink, marble countertop and drawers for storage. One of the bigger changes is switching the toilet from the South wall where it currently sits to the opposite side. This is the only way to fit in a larger vanity with storage and still be able to use the toilet.


Below you’ll find a compilation of what we plan to use and where to find them (sources are linked).
