What are button tiles (aka modern penny tiles)?
Tile Club’s Button tiles are made from porcelain, and they get their name from their distinctive shape. They're a popular choice for homeowners because they offer a lot of benefits along with their fun design.
For one, these petite are very easy to clean. You just need some gentle soap, water, and cloth for a quick wipe down!
The porcelain material is also waterproof and stain-resistant, which makes them a great option for areas like kitchens and bathrooms where spills are common. This is especially beneficial if you’re a parent, and want to make sure that your tiles can stand up to kid messes - or animals if you’re a pet parent!
Another great benefit to know is that these mosaic tiles come in a variety of colors and styles, you can easily find an option that fits your home's unique aesthetic. That’s ideal for those of you who want to make sure your home is an oasis that reflects your personality perfectly (as it should!).

When used on floors or walls, they can help create a feeling of spaciousness and grandeur. And because they come in so many colors and varieties, it's easy to find the perfect penny tile for any design scheme. Whether you're looking for a classic white tile or something with a bit more pizazz, there's sure to be a penny tile that's perfect for your home.
