Looking to create an impressive mood in your space? Black tile may be for you.

With looks that are sophisticated, dramatic, modern, sleek, and more, black tile provides versatile design options for any application. Pair black tile with white tile in a checkerboard or octagon-and-dot pattern for a classic look, or choose a stunning black marble-look tile for natural beauty. Cover a small area such as a backsplash in black tile — or an entire bathroom for a statement design.

Whatever type of black tile you choose, ceramic tile’s fade and scratch resistance ensure that your black tile will continue looking as great as it did on day one. Explore our many black tile examples below and on our Pinterest board for inspiration for your home.
