You thought your fancy marble tiles were impressive enough huh? Imagine walking into a bathroom and feeling like you just slipped into a tropical underwater paradise, or the floor of a sunken battleship.
There’s a new trend in bathroom flooring and it comes in the form of 3D epoxy polymer, a special material that creates an incredibly realistic perception of depth that just might terrify your young children, not to mention any unsuspecting guest you have over.
The technique involves layering any desired image on the level floor and covering it with a transparent two-component polymer that gives it depth. Imperial Interiors, the company behind these fantastic installs, says the technique was originally used in mall displays. Now we’re seeing it invade people’s bathrooms, and even extending into their other living spaces in a most creative fashion.
Your cat will no doubt become incredibly frustrated with your new interior decorator.
The floors aren’t limited to bathrooms either – consider a tropical paradise theme in your wine bar perhaps.
The sense of depth in some of the applications is simply astonishing!
One of my favorites is the flooding water shooting from beneath the bathtub.
Don’t mind Flipper saying hello while you do your business.
Take it to the next level by applying images to the walls, cabinets, even the ceiling.

There’s no doubt how cool some of these floors are. Our biggest concern though is they might be so distracting while taking a leak that you forget where you’re aiming…
