Neutral Ombre Tile Ideas for Your Home

Neutral Ombre Tile Ideas for Your Home

Love the look of ombre, but want something a little more toned down? You're going to swoon over this list of neutral ombre tile. Six different installs, six new ideas for your next home project. From your shower wall, backsplash, kitchen island, to floor - the possibilities are endless! These ideas prove that neutral coloring can still be bold and make a statement in any room. 

Here are 6 Neutral Ombre Tile Ideas for Your Home: 

No. 1 - Moroccan Fish Scale Shower Wall

Our go-to shower shape is large Moroccan Fish Scales. This shape has many other names, one of which is "Mermaid Tile" which seems appropriate because you'll feel like royalty in this shower. Moroccan Fish Scales look particularly beautiful in ombre because of the way the scalloped shapes cascade into each other, smoothing the transition from light to dark glaze. 

This project is only one of six tiled areas in this house. See all of the projects with our blog "Tile Home Tour: Newly Remodeled Mid-Century Home"

Large Moroccan Fish Scales - 815W Light Grey, 60 Silver Lining, 77E Grey, 130 White, 11 Deco White.


No. 2 - Moroccan Fish Scale Floor

Stand on a piece of artwork by adding our handmade tile to your floor! While it's a detailed process to make these beauties, they're actually pretty easy to maintain once installed. Their ceramic base makes them ideal for high-traffic areas and cleaning them is as easy as keeping the debris off and wiping down with an all-natural cleaner.

Large Moroccan Fish Scales - 956 Smoke N’ Mirrors, 912W Cloudy Sky, 1043 Driftwood, 130 White, 11 Deco White. 

No. 3 - Geometric Tiled Island

Okay, so this project is actually a reception desk at Brow Chic, but we want to see this idea on someone's kitchen island! Mixing shapes adds a whole new dimension of intricacy to your tile install. For this project we mixed Medium Diamonds and Large Hexagons, which we love because of how perfectly they fit together. To top it off, this install is surrounded by the beautiful illustrated wall art of Zoe Wodarz

Geo-Hex Pattern - 60 Silver Lining, 130 White, 11 Deco White. 

No. 4 - Black to White Diamond Ombre Floor

Every guest in your home will be floored with this beautiful Diamond arrangement. While seemingly complex to install such a special tile project to your home, we make it a breeze with mesh-sheeting. Our layout department glues the tile onto the sheeting, cuts it apart, and labels it in sequential order to ship to you. No jigsaw puzzle, no worrying about getting every single piece of tile perfectly aligned, with us it's as easy as 1, 2, 3...

Medium Diamonds - 130 White, 11 Deco White, 77E Grey, 60 Silver Lining, 155 Steel, 366 Satin Black, 613 Black, 912W Cloudy Sky, 815W Light Grey.

No. 5 - Diamond Vignette Kitchen Backsplash

What's better than a simple horizontal or vertical ombre? Ombre coming from both sides of course! For this stunning backsplash we created a beautiful vignette effect with a bold range of our Diamond tile. We used neutral colors for a base and added accents of blue for extra dimensionally. And because we love the use of color, adding additional colors will not increase the price of your project. Why only use three colors when you could have eight?

No. 5 - Metallic Hexagon Shower Wall

Hexagons are a truly timeless shape. With our wide range of glaze colors, it's easy to make them your own. Even within our neutral color palette we have a variety of finishes, saturations, and variations to choose from. This project utilizes a wide range of lightness and texture giving it a bold metallic feel which we absolutely adore for a modern industrial look.

    I LOVED this post! After following pages for months, I am so excited to start this process with you! This post and visiting about six stores and bringing home multiple samples just inspired me to send my pictures and get started because what I am looking for is exactly what you do and no one else that I have seen out there!
