The Real Wow Factor
It's hard not to be green with envy of this spectacular kitchen backsplash. Each of the tiles is handmade and creates stunning movement with the fan-shaped design from counter to ceiling. Soft gray cabinets are clad in gray-and-white quartz countertops, while copper hardware adds a touch of metallic.
Black and White and Floral All Over
With a classic foundation of white subway tiles on the walls and backsplash in this bathroom, the floors seemed like the perfect spot to add a punch of pattern. Concrete tiles laid to create a striking black-and-white floral design add major style points underfoot.
Mixing and Matching
A cozy laundry room is the ideal place to have a little fun with tile. Here, a combination of "X" and star-shaped tiles in alternating white and gray shades make for a pretty backsplash. Even the fur baby gets a backdrop of the charming tiles in her little nook. A decidedly different choice makes its way into the design on the side of the cabinet and around the window with blue-and-white square tiles in whimsical and funky patterns.
Striking the Right Balance
The black-and-white graphic tiles not only make a bold backsplash statement, but they also provide a chic juxtaposition against the rustic warm wood of the cabinets. Simple white countertops pair with sleek faucets allowing the other aspects of the room to really shine.
Gradient of Gray
Creative tile patterns come from the actual tile itself, the way the tile is laid or a combo of both, such as this bathroom. Under a header of simple white subway tiles, gray ombre tiles are laid in a chevron pattern to create a cool shaded diagonal effect. Burnt gold fixtures and handles add a touch of warm glam to the mostly gray-and-white bathroom.
No Doormat Required
Now, that's creative. Hexagon tiles seamlessly blend into the hardwood floors of this entryway. This out-of-the-box idea means no more worrying about dripping water on your hardwoods.
A mix of small square and rectangle glass tiles form an iridescent earth-toned backsplash that from a distance has the look of a stone wall. Seamless, clean-lined countertops and a floating vanity allow the texture of the backsplash to be the star of this bathroom.
Setting for a Getaway
A variety of tiles complete the Zen-like atmosphere of this lavish bathroom. Textured stone tiles make up the flooring and create a less slippery surface, while luxurious marble tiles frame the shower and bathtub. Intricate tilework creates a cloud-inspired motif around the tub surround and inset in the shower.
Around the Hearth
One surefire way to modernize a classic fireplace with its traditional moldings and mantel — graphic tiles. These black-and-white starburst tiles bring in a contemporary touch that makes for a noteworthy addition.
A pretty space to tackle the never-ending task of laundry, sign us up. Blue-gray cabinets create a classic combo with the white walls and simply charming Dutch door. A dainty floral pattern is designed out of tiny hexagon tiles for a detailed and delightful floor.
Modern Meets Organic
Sleek periwinkle cabinets are dotted with brass pulls, creating a geometric-inspired base to this naturally contemporary kitchen. Graphic black-and-white tiles create an intertwining design for the backsplash, while reclaimed wood shelves give the room an airy, open quality.
Living the Blues
The monochromatic color palette of this kitchen completely envelopes the space to create a richly jeweled atmosphere. Glossy navy tiles are laid in a herringbone pattern and matte black hardware and fixtures blend seamlessly with the matching cabinets.
Travel around the world as soon as you step into the shower with this Moroccan-inspired walk-in. Black tiles fade from gray to white, creating a chic ombre effect. Double rain showerheads ensure a complete spa-like experience.
A Twist on a Classic
Traditional herringbone gets a fun and colorful update in this eclectic bathroom. Simple neutral tiles are laid in the classic pattern from floor to ceiling with shades of burgundy, jade and mustard sporadically interchanged throughout the design for an energetic and unexpected look.
Blanketed in Country Charm
Classic blue and white meets tile flooring that's reminiscent of your great-grandmother's quilts to add instant warmth to this completely contemporary bathroom. With the rest of the bathroom a cool white, the walk-in shower is like bathing in an ocean of blue.
Tone on Tone
Traditional cabinets with ornate carvings combine with ogee-edged countertops for this Old-World kitchen. The real showstopper is the backsplash with its embossed concrete tiles in an interlocking hexagonal pattern.
Vibrant shades of teal, green and taupe combine in a star pattern for these attention-grabbing tiles. The backsplash adds visual interest and brilliant color to this clean white-and-mint kitchen.
Coming Up Stripes
One of the most basic patterns makes for a noteworthy display. Gray-and-white tiles laid in a simple striped design are eye catching. Since they're creating horizontal lines, they also help to visually expand the shower.
