No Risk, High Reward: White Tile That's Anything but Basic

No Risk, High Reward: White Tile That's Anything but Basic

There’s really no way you can go wrong with white tile – its versatility is a superpower. And while white tile is inherently timeless, don't let its universality fool you into thinking it's basic. Playing with shapes, transitions and variations can ensure your white tile is a low key stunner. Continue reading to learn more ways to use white tile.

1. Chevron Diamond Tiled Shower

White subway tile is always a classic, but exploring different shapes is one way you can add more creative flair to your tile design. A chevron tile statement wall, like in this bathroom shower, keeps the vibe upbeat.

2. Moroccan Fish Scale Bathroom

​​Our signature Moroccan Fish Scale tile adds fluidity and warmth to any design, no matter the tile shade. Plus, make your small bathroom seem larger by using white Moroccan Fish Scales like these homeowners did below. Light colors will brighten the room, and the curved shape expands the perceived visual space.

3. White Diamond Tiled Island

A white diamond tile island embodies this kitchen’s lively aesthetic, but doesn’t compete with the bold, bright yellow walls. In this Hedley & Bennett kitchen, our 130 White is a  glossy and perfectly varied option to complete this happy space.

4. Ombré 'River' Kitchen Backsplash

You can also use white tile to create either a striking or subtle color transition in your design. This oven backsplash designed by Construction2Style used white subway tile to anchor a black and gray ombré “river” pattern above the oven range.

5. Geo-Hex Ombré Tiled Front Desk

Taking a more understated approach, Brow Chic Salon used hexagon and diamond tile in a combination of neutrals to transition their statement wall from white to dark gray tile. An ombre from grey to white is becoming a hit amongst our clients and it is the perfect way to make a minimalist statement.

6. White Hexagon Tiled Kitchen Backsplash

Because each of our glazes are hand-applied, every single tile that leaves our studio will be distinctive in its own way. You can also play around with variation in the glaze. Whereas a high-variation glaze means there will be a wider range in shades, hues, and textures, a low variation glaze will appear more uniform in color. This kitchen backsplash used hexagon tiles in a high variation white to create an organic, natural aesthetic.
