Tile Style: Out Of The Ordinary Wall Tile

March 01, 2016


If you dream of a space that looks like it came straight out of a magazine or mimics a model home, then consider adding an accent wall to your room. Creating a focal point filled with wall tile or stacked stone will give your kitchen, bathroom, or living room the out-of-the-ordinary visual interest it needs to stand out from the rest.

Veneto Noce

To elevate the style of your modern bathroom, create a wall full of tiles with Veneto Noce. This glazed porcelain tile provides the look of vein-cut travertine without the hassle of caring for natural stone, and its color palette of warm beiges, grays, and creams in a matte finish means this tile works well in contemporary to traditional designs. It comes in various plank sizes, including 6 inches by 24 inches, 12 inches by 24 inches, and 16 inches by 36 inches. Luckily, the larger formats are on trend, but this also means fewer grout lines to scrub, which can be a big plus when it comes to keeping the shower sparkling clean! 

Arctic White

While you probably have seen stacked stone like Arctic White used on many fireplaces and exterior facades, why not take it beyond its typical use? These striking, snowy white quartzite ledger panels in a split-face finish are 6 inches by 24 inches. They add dimension and texture to this contemporary kitchen and draw the eye directly toward the feature wall, which is beautifully accented with an art-like, built-in wine rack.

A multi-finish stacked stone like Casa Blend 3D is ideal for outdoor applications like retaining walls or outdoor fireplaces, but it can also give your interiors a style boost with its natural travertine stone.
