7 Ombre Tile Ideas with Different Shapes & Colors

Ombre designs are a fan favorite not only in interior design, but in many different industries from hair to baking. This popular design is the blending of one color to another, usually with tints and shades going from light to dark. When it comes to tile, this style is perfect because of how versatile it is. Whether you want something neutral and relaxing or big and full of personality, there is a tile shape and color combination perfect for you. Here are 7 ombre tile designs that we love and hope you do too! 

1. Buttered Tin Ombre Backsplash

Adorning the café wall, the bright ombre herringbone tile infuses the space with dynamic charm. Shades of blue, turquoise, and white dominate, creating a captivating visual gradient. Optimal tile sizes are typically medium, allowing the pattern's elegance to shine. The overall aesthetic is modern and inviting, evoking feelings of warmth and sophistication.

2. Baby Blue Kitchen

Moroccan Fish Scales are one of our fan favorite tile shapes and they are perfect for ombre designs. The rounded top and pointy bottom of this tile shape make the color transitions of this blue to white ombre seamless and satisfying. The feathered ombre tile creates a gorgeous blend of blues that compliment the rest of the kitchen beautifully.

3. Light & Neutral Ombre

 This light and airy kitchen houses a sleek neutral ombre tiled backsplash that we are in love with! Using a neutral color palette for your tiled ombre design gives you the opportunity to add pops of colors in your decor like the flowers below! Plus, using small tile shapes creates the illusion that the space is larger than it really is.
