18 colors of 4″ x 4″ bathroom tile — a new source

retro-yellow-bathroom-tileA new source for 4″ x 4″ bathroom tiles in classic midcentury pastel colors — Classic Tile, Inc., based in Brooklyn, NY. Some of the colors look lovely — that yellow: yummy! — and the price is right. Prices for these tiles run from $1.75 to about $3.75/s.f.

Above: Yellow bathroom tile – for sale at Classic Tile Inc. Manufactured. The Classic Tile website says this tile is made by U.S. Ceramic Tile Co. They are now part of the Roca Tile Group; however, I don’t see these pastels in the current Roca lineup. So I think that means: You maybe better get them while you can. Home Depot also carries U.S. Ceramic Tile Co. (USCTC) — although I don’t see any of these colors online. I can’t find USCTC on the internet at all.

I am pretty darn sure this is exactly the tile I put into my bathroom. Only I recall it was called rose beige at the time. Okay so maybe I’m not sure. But it looks like it.

Thanks to reader Shawn for the tip that led us to Classic Tile. She used one of their mosaic floor tiles — also a great, affordable find — which we profiled here.

Again, the source: 4″ x 4″ pastel ceramic bathroom and kitchen tiles from Classic Tile Inc.

    I live in a 1964 home that still has the original bathroom tiles. One has the dusty peach with terracotta trim tiles…and the other has the yellow and gray tiles. I have been told to rip them out and update the bathroom. But heck, they are still in good shape. It was tough getting a good paint color but I went with aqua with the peach tiles and used a beach theme decor…it is like water and sand…beautiful! Hung vintage souvenir plates from the different beach resorts. The other bathroom have painted the walls a complementary gray. I had to replace the vinyl floor, so did a black glass tile floor and shower… added retro lighting over the sink. They both look great!

    Is there any way I can send you a picture of the tile I am trying to match? House built in 1959.
