Spice up your bathroom with a Moroccan touch

It may not be where you entertain yourself, but we spend a good deal of our time in our bathrooms. This has been especially true over the past couple of years with all those extra trips to wash your hands and, in my case, the weird Zoom call. Bathrooms have gone from single-use spaces to relaxation areas. In a world where health and well-being come first, they have become soothing sanctuaries where one can escape the stress of a long day. In fact, sometimes a soak in the tub or a pampering session can be the highlight of our day.

Nothing says Morocco like a colorful handmade tile. Go big with a feature shower wall or keep it simple with a backsplash. Handmade tiles can stretch the budget, so if you’re looking for a more cost-effective option, try “handmade” tiles. Best Tiles offers an extensive range of encaustic cement tiles in many colors and patterns that mimic Morocco for a fraction of the actual cost of handmade tiles.
