I'm so glad to have a place to share this great idea! I wish I could take credit for it, but the idea came from a spur-of-the-moment suggestion made by a friend.

As part of a bathroom remodel, I replaced the old plastic tub/shower surround with tile, and included a row of white plastic dominoes at about eye level.

The dominoes were cut and installed just like the tile.

What I learned/should have done: should have used a belt sander on the back of the dominoes to make them the same thickness as the tile - as it is, I have a tiny ledge above the dominoes where moisture can collect. I also think the dominoes would look better installed vertically rather than horizontally.

I am currently pondering whether I can work some more dominoes into the new floor treatment...

That is sweet, nice work! I'm always looking for new ways to use dominos and I definitely never thought of that!

Great idea!  That is such a fun way to spice up the tile in the bathroom.  Cheesy

This is really cool. Aren't there ceramic dominoes as well? you could make them look like an actual game having them run in different directions connecting by the common dots or just play with various styles of dominoes with a variety of colors.
