Trend Alert: Penny Tile

As much as I love a good subway tile or mosaic glass tile backsplash, penny tile has become a new favorite of mine!

Penny round tile is both historic (it's been used for many many decades) as well as neo-modern. It's become a big trend in kitchen and bathroom design in recent years and is considered a fresh and new option for many homeowners. The shape and size of these small tiles gives it it's name and it comes in so many different colors and materials. You can purchase this tile just about anywhere now (in fact I saw some great penny tile options at Home Depot just yesterday!)

Penny tile is traditionally used on the floor, more specifically in bathrooms. . . although it looks great in modern applications as well!

Speaking of using penny tiles in a bathroom, why not tile an entire wall with this versatile tile?! It creates a great focal point and major impact in small or large bathrooms.

Another great use for penny tile is on a fireplace. . .

 So what do you think of this tiling trend? Do you think it's here to stay?
