BLENDED MATERIALS

TOUCHABLE OR VISUAL

Some fabric look tiles provide visual texture and have a smooth surface. Others have touchable textures with varied surfaces. Touchable surfaces stand out from other materials. Light and shadow exaggerate the surface and are perfect for designs with a rustic edge. Smooth fabric look tile has a more neutral look but still adds a visual texture that’s more suitable for contemporary spaces.

PATTERN WITH TEXTURE

With the comeback of wallpaper, a fabric look tile on the wall is an excellent choice. Add a pattern and you have a raised surface that resembles some of the most distinguished wallpapers available. An intricate curvy design with floral features in a warm color is lovely for traditional style. Geometric patterns with a bit of gloss in darker colors can span styles from mid-mod to contemporary.
