Mosaic Monday: Standout Kitchen Backsplashes with 3D Mosaics

January 23, 2017

If you were to hear someone talk about 3D tile, you would probably instantly imagine a room with a modern style and contemporary décor. However, with today’s many options for this multidimensional material, you can go beyond the modern aesthetic in your style. In fact, these mosaics can take on many styles, from traditional looks to a more rustic style. 

With so many stylistic applications, the kitchen backsplash is the perfect place to add the big impact and impressive personalization of 3D tile. We think you’ll love these five standout examples. 

Traditional Look

Featured: Whisper White Arched Herringbone

Whisper White Arched Herringbone is a beautiful 3D ceramic tile in the graphic herringbone pattern. This pattern adds dimension, depth, and interest to any kitchen.

As featured in this all-white, traditional cooking space, the tile draws your eye to the high-end range and oven, as well as the elegant hood. The mosaic tile and border stand out against the more subtle white subway tile, creating a mixture of materials and play of patterns that are anything but boring!

Old-World Charm

Featured: Tuscany Ivory Honed and Beveled Wall Tile

Originating from Turkey, Tuscany Ivory Honed and Beveled Wall Tile features a 2x4 brick-look backsplash with a beveled edge. The natural travertine stone offers a rustic feel you’d find in an authentic European-style home.

This 3D travertine tile is perfect for a neutral-toned kitchen, as the tile backsplash complements with the tan countertops and cream-colored cabinets. With 18 chips per sheet, this product is easy to install in a kitchen or bathroom. 

Sophisticated Style 

Featured: Silver Aluminum Metal 3D

Silver Aluminum Metal 3D is a stunning metal tile with a dramatic 3D pattern that can transform your room into something ultra contemporary. It’s a sophisticated addition to a transitional kitchen design.

The contemporary, light-reflecting tile complements with the sleek hood, cool pendants, and chrome fixtures, but also contrasts with the traditional white cabinets. The end result is a refined space that reflects this homeowner’s personal style. 

Très Chic

Featured: Calacatta Cressa 3D Stacked Stone

When you’re after a fashionable and elegant look, you can’t go wrong with marble! Calacatta Cressa 3D Stacked Stone is a 6x24 tile that can be used in both traditional and modern kitchens because of its classic material and contemporary 3D stacked stone ledger panel design.

With this show-stopping stone, this fashionable kitchen looks like it’s straight out of a home décor magazine! The soft gray veins and clean lines add pattern, texture, and elegance to the space. 

Rustic Elegance

Featured: Taupe Capella Porcelain Tile 

Taupe Capella Porcelain Tile is another brick-look tile that creates instant charm and provides a rustic elegance. The perfectly aged brick comes in a soft gray and taupe palette, for a more updated feel.

The backsplash almost matches the wood-tile flooring in this kitchen. For even more impact, the tile is taken beyond the backsplash and installed as a feature wall for that exposed brick feel.
