If you fall for gray and white color palettes, then you’ll love Carrara White Basketweave Polished Marble. This frosty white and gray polished marble from Italy gives off an elegant vibe, while the diagonal pattern adds interest and movement.

You might not expect this decorative mosaic tile to be installed in such a modern space, but it adds subtle detail and dimension to this streamlined kitchen. The natural stone also softens the sleek stainless steel countertop and shiny cabinetry.

For a contemporary pattern in a timeless stone, turn to Tundra Gray Basketweave. This stunning kitchen backsplash tile is made of marble from Turkey. The gray and beige basketweave with dark gray accents creates a neutral backdrop for a number of color options. The soft tones mesh well with the white cabinets yet tie in beautifully with the stainless steel appliances and dark countertops.

Crema Marfil Herringbone

If you’re after a three-dimensional look with natural elements, then consider Crema Arched Herringbone. The marble chips come in a curved design that bring the woven basket pattern to life, and its flattering taupe tone will enhance any style kitchen.

The 12-inch by 12-inch mesh sheets come pre-arranged for installation ease. In this cooking space, the eye is drawn directly to the polished wall tile, which glistens from the lights in the stainless steel range.   

Crema Cappuccino Basketweave

Like Tundra Gray, Crema Cappuccino Basketweave is a Turkish marble with a striking geometric pattern. However, the taupes, blushes, beiges, and creams exude a more refined, traditional styling. It blends beautifully with other neutral tone mosaics like in this large cooktop area. The picture-frame feature in this basketweave stone further highlights the stainless steel stovetop.
