Glaze Guide - Our Tile Color Palette

Glaze Guide - Our Tile Color Palette

Did you know that the human eye can see over 7 million colors?! We've done our best to narrow down 7 million colors into 48 gorgeous and fool-proof glazes. These 48 colors are tried and true and will turn a drab space into anything but ordinary. Full of character and personality, you can't go wrong with any one. We’re so proud of our refined color palette that we want to show you the best of the best when it comes to our gorgeous glazes...

We totally get it - decisions can be overwhelming especially when you're not sure if it's the right decision. That's why we've narrowed our palette down to glaze colors that we are 100% confident in. Each color has been flawlessly tested and executed over and over again. There's no way you can make the wrong decision simply because every glaze is the right decision. Continue reading through our glaze guide to see our tile color palette!

1. Best of Blues

We can't hide the fact that we are a little obsessed with shades of blue. It's a color that we hold near and dear to our tile hearts. Our blue color palette is the perfect choice to transform your bathroom into a dreamy oasis or to create a focal point in your kitchen backsplash. The perfect hue that's both vibrant and mellow, Pantone's 2020 Color of the year Classic Blue reminds us of our vivid 23 Sapphire Blue

2. Best of Greens

Another color that we have a special place in our hearts for is green! Green is on the up and up in the design world, and we've mastered the emeralds, pines, and teals in this category. Our Sea Mist glaze is at the top of our list when it comes to our blue-green glazes. This glaze is a favorite of ours because it is filled with variations of aquas, teals and hints of blue. The glaze possesses detail and variation like no other and will transform any space into a tropical masterpiece.

3. Best of Yellows

Yellow can be tricky when it comes to tile. As much as we love yellow, we understand that it can also be distracting when used excessively. That’s why we suggest pops of yellow. Yellow is key when it comes to Mid-Century Modern design, and Fox Homes flawlessly executed this style with pops of warm yellow hues.

4. Best of Oranges

For those with earthy spirits, our burnt orange hues are ideal for a welcoming environment with casual elegance. From terra-cotta floors to caramel farmhouse backsplashes, these cozy colors are timeless and trendy. While burnt hues of orange are cozy and comforting, our vivid orange hues are perfect for a bold, Mid-Century Modern look.

5. Best of Pinks

Pink represents inner peace and approachability. It's rich without being overwhelming and can serve a purpose in any space. When using a unique color, such as pink, you can open up and transform any room of your house. Create an unforgettable ambiance with our soft pink Grapefruit glaze like Fox Homes did with our pink Moroccan Fish Scales

6. Best of Browns

Rich browns are known for being comforting and safe. Browns draw attention without being overwhelming. These colors are best used when entering the home such as this mudroom floor. With these deep warm hues, more is always more. We love a hexagon floor to show off this deep brown color palette. With subtle variation and rich depth, enter your home in style.

7. Best of Greys

Our neutral color palette is ideal for ombres and playing with patterns. Creating an ombre with grey hues is one of our favorite ways to make grey an exciting color. When working with a neutral color palette, it allows you more room to get creative with the layout design because you don't have to worry about clashing colors.

8. Best of Blacks

Black tile is known for being chic and classy. There are many places and different ways to use black tile, but one of our favorites is to make a small space stand out. We love making statements with tile and black is the perfect choice for a bold and dramatic look. Our Satin Black glaze and Large Diamond shape make for a dreamy and irresistible combo.

9. Best of Whites

Bright white tile is the perfect way to bring a light and airy feel to your space. Our favorite glossy white glaze is our 11 Deco White. The organic transition between Subway Tile to Bubbles make this Cocoon Salon backsplash a minimalist statement piece.
