Plank bathroom floor tiles

Probably the most Pinterested thing from this blog & the most asked-about feature in our home are the floor tiles in our guest bathroom.  We're quite fond of them.

{The photo above shows the color most accurately.}


 They are porcelain stone tiles cut in planks (we chose the 6 x 24 size).  We love the plank style for its uniqueness because, at the time, we rarely saw any plank style flooring besides hardwoods.  Our tiles are from Crossville Ceramics, more specifically their Plan series.  The tiles have a slightly bumpy textured surface & just a hint of metallic in the finish.  You can read more about them here.  Though the Lead color we chose is no longer available (it was marked down at the time when we purchased them from The Great Indoors) there are other grey options.

FYI: These tiles were designed for exterior use but we were told that interior use is fine too.  We thought the textured surface would be great for a bathroom to provide a bit of traction when it came to moisture & shower sprinkles.  It's been 1 year now & we couldn't be happier with them.  {When this bathroom isn't being used by guests, I demand that Mr. FC use it because I can't stand his man-scaping messiness.  Dude can foul up a bathroom, for realsies.}  We didn't see a need to seal the tiles since they're porcelain & are also surprisingly easy to clean despite their textured surface.  They still look pristine 1 year later; very durable so far!

I don't know who carries these tiles other than The Great Indoors, but hopefully you can locate a store near you.  If anyone out there has seen similar tiles, please let me know & I can link to them in this post.  I hope this helps those of you who have emailed me about them.  So sorry I haven't had a chance to respond to you individually!


*I was not compensated for mentioning Crossville Ceramics or The Great Indoors in this post.  Just thought this info would be useful for anyone who is interested!

  3. I love those floors, FC! I seriously wish we would've went with a darker option in our main bathroom. The light grout and light tiles make every dirt speck noticeable.

  5. I love that whole bathroom, esp the tile. You have great taste. OT...your girl child looks exactly like one-half you and one-half Mr. FC. Did you order her that way, you know like an American Girl doll? She is really cute.

  8. @ Sara: Nice use of 'womanscape'! As in womanscaping was nonexistent for me when I was prego. Too far?

    @ Jenny: Aww, I'm happy to hear that!

    @ Mary S: Your comment made my day like you wouldn't believe, thank you! American Girl Doll--best comment EVER! =]

    @ Joi & Crissy: Thx so much ladies!! You're so sweet. We were long overdue for a freshening up of the ol' bloggy blog. I'm calling it a blog spring cleaning. =]

  9. Those tiles are amazing! The plank style really is just stunning - modern yet classic. And I agree with the man needing his own place to get ready - gah! Wish my man had a separate bathroom!

  12. I totally love your bathroom design! Especially the plank tiles. I found the exact tiles at a local tile store in New York. Crosville Ceramics still sells this tile and in the Lead color!

  13. I just had these plank tiles installed in my guest bathroom which is the same layout as yours. I had them lay the tile the opposite way so they were "long ways" when we open the door (vertical instead of your horizontal?). We picked the same color but maybe even a shade or two darker. We differ in the grout & the layout. I picked a very dark grout so I wouldn't have to deal w/cleaning light colored grout. Your's is laid "brick style" & I had ours laid with the top of each plank being 6 inches from top of the plank it was beside. It was more cascaded - more like true hard wood laying - if that makes sense. I got my tile at Floor & Decor Outlets. I love it so far!

  15. It’s good that you decided to do some experimenting on your bathroom tiles, but what’s even better is that it turned out great! It’s true that porcelain stone tiles are usually used for exterior flooring. But they can be great for indoors too. They give this rustic vibe, and add texture to the flooring and design. The deep color of the tiles also blends well with the style of the bathroom.
