If you still think of tiles as monochromatic squares, let us get you up to speed. Tiles can be any size or shape, and advances in technology mean that any design you can imagine — and yes, we mean any — can be printed directly onto ceramic tile. That’s what makes this intricate and eye-catching striped mosaic tile possible. An alternating pattern of stripes even give the backsplash a textured, 3D feel, but it’s all an optical illusion. Ceramic tile is water- and stain-resistant, so splashes and spills will do no harm here — and that is not an illusion, just the power of ceramic tile.
