We adore all of the open shelving designs our clients have been creating with our tile. Not only does it offer beautiful styling options for your home, it's also a stunning way to get the most out of your tile backsplash. By using open shelving (also known as floating shelves) with tile behind it, you ensure that whatever is displayed on the shelves will look amazing with the backdrop of our handmade ceramic tile.
While this look is often modern, we've seen it designed to match a variety of client styles. From classic to bohemian, this shelving idea is versatile and perfect for your next kitchen or bathroom remodel. For the logistics of executing this style, work closely with your cabinetry company and contractor, ensuring that all parties are in agreement for the best way to install.
