Size & Orientation

This tile is special for two reasons. One is that it comes in three different sizes, making it easy to use for any sized space. From shower niche to accent tile to a full wall, the versatility of the Moroccan Fish Scales is ideal. Another reason why this tile special is the ability to install them in different directions. You can have the point facing up, down, or create a wave pattern full of movement.

Ombre Blues

Choosing the right color palette for your home is easy when the tile shape is already full of character and movement. Ombre designs can tell a story and this space does just that. This Medium sized Moroccan Fish Scale backsplash transports us to a beach with a gentle sea and blue skies. By having the darkest color at the bottom and fading to the lightest, the beach scene is visible and gorgeous. Keeping in mind the placement of colors in your design is important!
