Marble is one of the most popular interior design materials for its refined look. There are beautiful marble effect wall tiles that bring all the glory with none of the hassle. Stone imitation remains conventional and works just as well in sleek, modern spaces as it does in traditional kitchens.

Patterns and More Patterns
If you're the type who wants a kitchen that turns heads, patterned tiles pack the "punch" to liven up any space.

We recommend a plain countertop and understated cabinetry to highlight the beauty of the patterned backsplash. Feel free to take it as high as the ceiling for an even bolder appearance. Your backsplash won't just be a protective surface; it will become a work of art.
