Edgy And Trendy Zellige Tile Backsplashes cover

Considering that texture is the major current trend in home decor, many home owners and home designers stick to textured solutions in interiors: limewashed walls, various types of stone, wood, textile and of course tile. If you are looking for the most fashionable tile to style your home, this is Zellige tile.

What Is Zellige Tile?

Zellige is a handcrafted clay tile that originates from Morocco. Zellige tiles are known for their variations in tone, shine, flatness and depth of the glazing, its surface texture with irregularities as well as its variability in shape and size. Because they’re hand-molded, hand-cut, and hand-glazed, no two zellige tiles are exactly the same.

What Are Zellige Tile Pros?

The best thing about Zellige tile is that it’s unique, there are no two tiles looking the same, which will instantly elevate the style of your space and give it a character. A kitchen with such a backsplash will definitely stand out and such tile will add value to your home.

Experts recommend that zellige tiles be installed as close together as possible—with no joint and no tile spacers. The final look appears grout-less: a plus for those who are driven to madness by dirty grout, which is crucial for such a space as a kitchen.

What Are Zellige Tile Cons?

It’s impossible to get a batch of zellige tiles in the exact same hue. If you’re opting for zellige tiles in your project, know that your backsplash or wall will be more ombre or pointillist than solid-colored, and for some home owners it may be important.

Installing zellige tile is tricky and requires special care. You will need an expert and this will be extra cost.

Installed on a wall, the tiles appear more fluid or rippled than flat; it can make the tiles trickier to wipe down, and as a kitchen is quite a busy, dirty and damp space, it might be a big disadvantage.

What Zellige Tile To Use For A Backsplash?

You may rock Zellige tile in any color you like (remember it will be ombre and not solid-colored), and any size and even shape, yes, Zellige tiles today come in plenty of shape, too. Zellige tile always brings the texture, and if you rock some bold color, it will be even cooler! I totally admire fish scale Zellige tiles, which look like absolutely mermaid scales as there’s literally no grout visible.
