I am so excited to share some super fun before and after photos with you of our bathroom reno project at the Lakehouse! The before pictures show it all…this bathroom was basically what nightmares are made of. Dark, dirty, and old…and the shower…it was a place for spiders to hang out so you can imagine how much time I spent in there (none). We are THRILLED to have the whole place feeling so fresh, bright and clean now and this floor and shower tile from Clay Imports in the bathroom definitely stole the show!
This is what we started with:
And this is how it looks now:
I first stumbled upon Clay Imports when I was scrolling my Instagram feed and a show-stopping image of some tiled stairs caught my eye. I was so excited when I realized they were based here in Austin and had such an AMAZING selection of tiles to choose from! P.S. not in Austin? No worries, they ship nationwide! After stalking their website I knew that they would be the perfect choice for the tile in the Lakehouse project.
Clay Imports carries an assortment of hand crafted clay, cement, and authentic Saltillo tiles. For the bathroom floor I selected a cement tile called Catalonia Gray (linked HERE for you). All of their cement tiles are responsibly sourced from Turkey, Mexico and Morocco. They can even customize tile for you! I am obsessed with the pattern we selected and how it brings unique character to the room without overwhelming the small space.
For the shower I knew I wanted something white because it is not a huge shower and I wanted it to feel light and bright (like it never has in the past). When I came across their hand crafted, glazed Saltillo tiles I fell in love! Clay Imports was the first to develop Glazed Saltillo. A colored glaze is fired onto the tile, making it waterproof and absolutely stunning! I chose the thin brick pattern to have a modern feel but way more character than your traditional subway tile. Because the tiles are handmade, every single one is different. We actually used the same tile as the kitchen backsplash because I loved it so much! I linked their thin brick glazed Saltillo tiles HERE.

The people over at Clay Imports have been absolutely amazing to work with and we could not be happier with how this project turned out. Read on for more reveal photos.
