To Picket or Not to Picket?


This showstopper of a bathroom is our all-time top viewed photo on Houzz, and we have a hunch as to why…..

Pickets are quickly becoming the newest and trendiest tile shape, and we’re calling it now….you’re about to see much much more of this clever little tile!¬† An updated take on the subway tile, pickets provide more pattern and detail with an added flair!
So how did we come up with this eye-catching design you ask?¬† Well, it all started with an octagonal window.¬† No really, it was either a make or break situation with this window that felt so out of place in the outdated bathroom that was there.¬† The cost to get rid of it was greater than our clients budget could deal, but we love design challenges and this was definitely one of them!¬† So, we broke out our thinking caps and started brainstorming ways to make this window feel less out of place and more like a statement.¬† The pickets being your ‘not so average’ tile shape paired so nicely with the octagon window, it was a match made in picket heaven!¬† We kicked it up a notch by using a cement picket tile with some added pattern on the floor, and gave the vanity a pop of color which paired so nicely with the brass hardware and plumbing fixtures.¬† The crisp whites and the moody blues give this small bathroom some BIG wow-factor!
Interested in this same look?¬† Lucky for you–we’re feeling generous today!
