Our celebration of National Tile Day and countdown to Coverings 2022 continues into its second week with another 2022 tile trend. And this week’s trend is sure to impress with its striking designs and equally striking size.
That’s right, it’s floor-to-ceiling marble looks.
Defined by a sense of movement and grandeur, these tiles are full of exuberance, particularly when produced on floor-to-ceiling gauged porcelain slabs. What’s more, many manufacturers are producing dramatic marble looks with striking colors and heavy veining.
Here are some of our favorite XL marble panel designs.
White Floor-to-Ceiling Marble-Look Tile
There’s something classic about white marble-look tile, which is why we see it more often than just about any other tile design (except maybe subway tile, but don’t ask us to choose favorites! The brightening and uplifting effects of white marble-look tile are magnified by the sheer size of these floor-to-ceiling panels.
Note: The two photos above show the difference veining can make. In the first photo, thick but sparse gray veining creates a clean, cool look. In the second, more dispersed veining in a honey-bronze tone warms up the tile.
Black Floor-to-Ceiling Marble-Look Tile
What’s more sleek than black marble-look tile?
We love the moody, dramatic vibe that XL black marble-look tile creates. Lean into the look by using it throughout your space, or lighten it up by pairing it with a white tile design, as seen in this bathroom.

Blue Floor-to-Ceiling Marble-Look Tile
These XL marble-look panels are giving us the blues…in the best way possible!
These deep blue tones combined with the linear but jagged white veining transport us to the ocean as we take in this dramatic tile from the comfort of a hot bath.

Brown Floor-to-Ceiling Marble-Look Tile
We don’t see brown marble-look tile every day and this example makes us hungry for more.
A chocolatey hue and swirly vanilla veining meet in this unique floor-to-ceiling design, bringing us visions of our favorite desserts. What could be sweeter?

Green Floor-to-Ceiling Marble-Look Tile
This luscious example taps into another current tile trend: biophilia.
A green marble look with multicolored veining across gauged porcelain tile panels, is not only evocative of nature but makes us feel that we are within nature’s embrace. Pairing this look with a darker marble look on the floor and numerous plants creates a comforting, back-to-nature environment.
