Mosaic Monday: Proof That Backsplash Tile Can Completely Transform a Room

September 01, 2017

Is your kitchen or bathroom décor missing something? Whether you are completely remodeling the room or just doing a budget mini-makeover, upgrading your backsplash tile is the perfect way to give that room a stylish pop.

A fresh coat of paint is always a great idea – but tile does so much more than paint can ever do alone! MSI’s multidimensional, textured tile can take that backsplash even further, adding character, expressing artistry and giving you the opportunity for unlimited creativity.

Here are just a few types of intriguing tile for the kitchen and bath to inspire your own backsplash tile designs.

Stone Country River

At first glance, wood seems an odd choice for a backsplash or, as shown here, an entire wall that includes a shower. But when it’s tile that looks like wood, such as Country River Stone Wood-Look Porcelain, you can use it anywhere your heart desires.

Modern inkjet technology creates a durable, nonporous porcelain tile that realistically replicates wood grains including knots. This natural, spa-like surround is sure to make you smile every time you shower.

Aria Interlocking

Cream and gray, glass and stone, textured and smooth – Aria Interlocking Mosaic has it all. This mosaic combines natural stone with sparkling glass in a pre-assembled pattern that displays your artistic side.

Although it’s eye-catching and varied, the neutral, pale tones make it easy to blend this backsplash tile with other elements in your décor such as the cabinetry and countertops.

Arctic Ice Subway

Subway tile has long been a classic choice for walls and backsplashes. Arctic Ice Subway Tile is a new twist on this old favorite, featuring white crystalline glass that captures and reflects the light with a 3-D glimmer.

The modern tile pattern appears intricate and difficult to install — but no worries, it’s available in 12” x 12” pre-assembled sheets that fit neatly in place. 

Champagne Toast

Adding a small section of mosaic backsplash tile as an accent wall is a stylish, on-trend way to add drama to the room. Center it on another focal point, such as the bathroom vanity, and it’s an instant sensation.

Champagne Toast Interlocking Mosaic Tile features glass, metal, and stone in an artful multi-textured combo in neutral shades of taupe and mocha.
