Bold Designs For Inspired Spaces: The New Zaria Encaustic Tile Collection

July 13, 2023


Whether completely remodeling or updating your space with a more modern flair, encaustic-style tile is a surefire way to add style and texture to your bathroom or kitchen.

What is Encaustic Tile?

Its Greek-derived name references the original way this tile was usually produced – with bi-colored clay molded and inlaid before being sealed with pressure, resembling Victorian-era enameling. Today, many durable porcelain options exist that still capture the timeless look of encaustic tile. Thanks to its porcelain construction (as opposed to traditional concrete or clay), it has several key advantages. For example, this tile is easier to clean, install, and maintain.

Encaustic tile adds drama as a statement wall and can enhance the other decor in your bathroom, kitchen, or living space. It looks great on floors too!

The Benefits of Encaustic-Style Porcelain Tile

Our state-of-the-art tiles come in various color options to suit whatever fits your space.

Each tile is sized 8" x 8", making it an excellent choice for backsplashes, showers, or countertops. Its exceptional durability and intricate designs ensure that this tile retains its beauty for many years, standing the test of time.

1. Durability

Encaustic-style tile made from porcelain is ideal for use in high-traffic areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms. It is incredibly durable and resistant to wear, scratches, and most forms of impact. Porcelain is also highly resistant to staining and will not fade over time. As a result, this tile requires minimal maintenance and can last many years with proper care.

2. Versatility

This porcelain tile comes in various styles and an array of colors and textures, allowing it to be used to create stunning designs that can match any décor aesthetic. Whether looking for something modern or traditional, this tile can help you achieve your desired look.

3. Water Resistance

Because porcelain is water- and slip-resistant, this tile is excellent in bathrooms and kitchens. Its hard, durable surface means it's highly resistant to moisture and humidity, making it ideal for use in areas with frequent contact with water.
