3D Textured Tiles

You could say it's the wave of the future: textured porcelain and ceramic tiles represent a hot current trend in tile. A rippling wave effect echos organic elements such as waterfalls or striated rock formations in a sleek, contemporary fashion. 


Most of these 3D tiles are monochromatic; available in a simple white, gray, cream, or black. However, more lines are becoming available that mimic the look of vein-cut travertine or limestone with a linear pattern and a soft, undulating surface texture.


Patterns range from a pillow-like quilt effect to a curvaceous arabesque lantern pattern, from crocodile-skin hexagons to leafy veins.  


The majority of 3D textured tile lines come in large format tiles, usually 12x24". This allows for few grout lines and a clean look. 


Since these tiles are intended as decorative accents, they're more expensive than most regular porcelain or ceramic tiles, but they are less expensive than the majority of glass mosaics and other decorative tile options. Most range from $8 to $15 per square foot, however some designer lines, including hand-carved limestone and marble tiles, are above $50 per square foot.

Where to Use Them

Due to the dramatic relief patterns, most of these tiles are for wall use only, but some are durable enough for a floor installation.


Whether using them on a shower wall, kitchen backsplash, fireplace surround, or focal wall, these 3D textured tiles provide modern style and sophistication.

    Hi Chiquita,

    We use Jimdo as our web builder, and our site currently uses the St. Petersburg template.

    We picked the green accent color since that's the color of our logo. We chose the fonts and colors to customize the St. Petersburg template.
