Turn A Basic Bathroom Into A Modern Showstopper Like Joanna Gaines
HGTV’s Joanna Gaines is known for mixing a sense of new with old, as she often incorporates classic materials and lines with innovative takes on pattern and color.
In an episode of "Fixer Upper," Gaines brings new life to a typically mundane bathroom space by installing a dazzling black and white tiled floor, done in Marta cement tile.
The tile, reminiscent of black-and-white diamond-patterned or checkerboard floors, offers a floral feel while being more playful than other black-and-white tile varieties.
For homeowners who have bathrooms with a simple and neutral look of black and white, the tile can serve both as a focal point and as a statement piece.
It would also complement the more streamlined modern look of a white or light wood-toned vanity and accents, or a classic look with a darker wood-finished vanity.
The cost of the Marta tile is around $22 per square foot. For a similar, more budget-friendly look, use a simple black-and-white diamond tile or a classic checkerboard-style tile.
