1. Onyx Blend at the the Roxy Hotel

This two-toned backsplash is definitely the star of the show at The Roxy Hotel’s Oyster Bar! The mix of satin and glossy finishes adds a layer of texture and moodiness that fits this NYC location perfectly. Plus, the sleek black mermaid tiles seal the deal with the coastal feel. If you’re looking to add some dimension and want to be simple yet bold, the Onyx Blend is the way to go!

2. Dynamic Black & Steel Bar Backsplash

Alluring and luxurious are just two words to describe this tiled bar backsplash. Black tile can be overwhelming for some, so throwing an accent color into the mix is a great way to add some personality to the design. Plus, adding a tile with a different finish always adds a layer of dimension that's unmatched. Can you believe how much drama and character there is when 155 Steel is added to the two-toned black glazes!?

3. Custom Matte Black Kitchen Backsplash

Custom backsplashes give you the power to bring your tile dreams to life. Jeanne, the homeowner of this kitchen, did just that by keeping things modern and sleek. The contrast of the matte black tile with the glossy river creates beautiful movement and an eye-catching statement. We love the pops of white and silvery tones throughout this masterpiece!

6. Cozy Matte Black Backsplash

Last but certainly not least is this cozy matte black tiled backsplash. Some tile shapes don’t need to be dressed up with extra décor, and this backsplash is a perfect example of it! Fish Scales stand out due to their unique shape, especially with this smooth, silky satin black glaze. The combination of mermaid tile and satin black creates a cozy feel that would fit in any home!
