Our homes have transformed into spaces where we live, work and play, and as such, homeowners desire surroundings that comfort, inspire and bring joy. They are turning to materials like ceramic, porcelain or natural stone that create a beautiful space and ideally age well with wear and tear. Tile and stone are ideal options for every space within a home and are available at a range of price points. Marble or marble-look tile continues to be a driving trend in design.
If you’re looking at design through a dramatic lens, there are many ways to implement a breathtaking style by using marble or marble-look tile. Advancements in technology have allowed for marble-look tile to mimic their natural counterparts but offer the ease of maintenance and care that only comes with porcelain tile. Marble-look tile in soothing tones of greens and blues creates an unforgettable appearance. While dark browns and cobalt blue palettes add glamor, luxury and depth to a space.
White marble-looks with rich organic movement continue to evolve and remain highly desired as this timeless style provides a neutral backdrop while still offering a feeling of luxe. Pair this look with rich wood tones or striking metallic finishes and you have a space that is the epitome of elegance and style.
If natural stone is preferred, marble remains one of the most durable and attractive materials on the market, and due to its natural variation, it provides a unique, one-of-a-kind design. Marble stone is available in different sizes and shapes, providing fresh new looks. Using BIZOU™ Groutless Marble Mosaic as a backsplash can add whimsy and character to a space, while the durable marble stone and groutless nature of these products make it ideal for high moisture areas. Plus, installing groutless mosaics drastically simplifies installation.
Adding marble or marble-look tile in your home adds elegant drama while creating a cozy luxurious atmosphere.

Perfecting the layout and design of interiors involves using color and patterns to enhance the defining features of the space.
