Show Stopping Tile-LiLu’s Look of the Day

Elevate your Every Day with Showstopping Tile

One of the best ways to add a focal point to a kitchen or bathroom is using a show stopping tile. Today we have a look at some of the most intriguing tiles on the market to create a show stopping look. We are highlighting just a few brands, Ravenna Tile, Artistic Tile, and Maison Surface that have some of the more exciting mosaics that can add beauty and inspiring vistas to your home and elevate your everyday experiences.

Handmade Mosaics

Ravenna Tile uses ages-old handmade mosaic techniques to create some of the most innovative and show stopping tiles on the market today. They have looks from modern to romantic and have leveraged collaborations with designers and design houses like Gracie wallcovering to provide interior designers with endlessly inspiring tile options.
They have options to create your own custom look by creating a custom color of one of their standard tiles or creating a completely custom tile mosaic that can tell a part of your story in your home. I really admire that they are all handmade in Virginia and that the artisans creating these beautiful tiles are keeping an ancient art alive.

Waterjet Cut Beauty

Artistic Tile combines modern waterjet cutting techniques with handmade mosaic techniques to create show stopping tile of both stone and glass. I particularly like the stained-glass mosaics they create and the ability to use a large palette of colors to create a custom tile solution for a focal point as we did in this bathroom for the tub wall.
We used custom grays and blues to create a feminine mosaic designed just for our client. The use of the waterjet cutting makes very small and perfectly cut edges to create intricate floral patterns like this Chrysanthemum pattern. You can see this entire project here.

Bold and Beautiful

Another great source for show stopping tile is Maison Surface. Their range of mosaics includes bold modern designs that are unique in the marketplace and classic stone mosaics with a timeless appeal.
The endless color and stone palettes in this line are exciting to my designer’s eye. The ability to work with color or pattern to create unique, bespoke tile solutions is a beautiful way to create a home that is unique to each homeowner’s personality.

Show Stopping Tile Installations

At LiLu Interiors the focus of our design work is getting to understand the values, story, and unique personality of each of our clients and then designing custom space that truly elevate your every day. Here are just a few tile installations that reflect our clients’ unique personalities.
