Due to huge demand there’s now a more affordable porcelain tile in the same design

Love for the Lily Pad tile on Instagram has made it the most in-demand tile of 2018! The original design is made in a handmade artisan encaustic cement tile. This is the creme de la creme of tiles, but can be a costly option.

Due to popularity and demand Ca’Pietra has just launched a cheaper porcelain tile of the same design. This new more affordable option helps everyone, on all budgets, get the look.

‘When we first introduced Lily Pad it was made as an encaustic cement tile,’ explains Ca’Pietra Creative Director, Hamish Smith. ‘ We love this artisanal way of making tiles but we realise that encaustic cement tiles are not for everyone – they require some TLC. So we invested in the patented design to make Lily Pad available in a porcelain tile too.

So how is porcelain different to encaustic cement?

‘As they are man-made, porcelain tiles need little maintenance. They don’t require sealing or the level of maintenance that cement does. A quick clean should have the porcelain tiles looking as good as the day they were installed. These new tiles are also thinner, making them ideal for wall instalments’

Not to mention they are cheaper. The original encaustic cement tiles are £3.96 per tile, while the same design in porcelain tiles are just £2.30 per tile.

Amidst the sleepless days and nights, we somehow managed to finish painting the ensuite (in @duluxuk ‘Breton Blue’) – I say *we* but I actually just pointed and watched Chris do it 🤷🏼‍♀️ #TheFrugalityHouse

This shot of Alex’s bathroom has already generated 9,417 likes. The blue tiles in the fabulously stylish en-suite bathroom, are perfectly enhanced by brass fixtures and fittings.

The popular Lily Pad tile demonstrates how even the most stylised pattern can still feel bespoke. You can can choose to lay the tiles in a uniform ‘star burst’ pattern, just as Alex has done (above).
