Tile Inspirations


The typical backsplash is anything but typical these days. Homeowners may select the standard ceramic or porcelain options, or they may go bolder with glass or stone. The key to finding the right backsplash is to decide on the durability needed for the space, versatility for its use, and the design you wish to compliment.

Feature Wall

Finding the focal point of any room is key to great design. To make that area stand out, tile is a wonderful accent. Common areas include foyer walls, fireplace accents, kitchen bars, laundry rooms, bathrooms, or exterior walls on the lanai. Again, just about any kind of tile can be used, but some of the trendiest are stacked stone, colorful mosaics, and textured tiles.


While tile floors are obvious, the way the tile is patterned, set, and displayed can inspire an entire room’s story. Setting the floor in a diagonal pattern can elongate a room. Using different-sized tiles can give the room an organic feeling.

Insets or Wainscoting

Adding small tile accents in a floor or wall/backsplash inset, or as wall wainscoting, is one of the biggest tile inspirations of the current decade. Using this trend can add color, dimension, interest, and style to any room.

Tile Trends

Large Format

Go big or go home. The use of large-format tile is all the rage. Spanning oversized walls and expansive floor plans, the large format tiles bring a room to life and accentuates its size. Used behind a bathtub, spanning an outdoor wall, or climbing a fireplace – the large format is more than a statement – it’s the entire story.

Glass Mosaic

Decorators are using glass mosaic tile to add color, sophistication, and interest to bathrooms, kitchens, and more. When light hits the tile, it sparkles and shines adding dimension to the product that other products just can’t offer. The product is available in many sizes, shapes, and colors making it the ideal accent to any room.

Textured & Dimensional

Tile that creates visual interest is a must in high-end luxury homes. Today’s ceramic tiles provide a 3-dimensional look by incorporating angles, hard and soft lines, and color variations. Many manufacturers are also including metallic interest to these tiles to create unique and eye-catching patterns.

High Shine

Ceramic tiles with a high sheen create a modern space full of luxury and sophistication. For instance, a traditional subway tile in a subtle hue becomes more luxurious when the shine is applied and jumps off the wall with its brightness.
