Malibu Tiles for Colorful Bathroom Backsplash

A cohesive design using similar design motifs and colors from our ceramic and cement tile collections can easily be created.

Malibu Tiles for Colorful Bathroom Backsplash

As such, as part of a recent new-home construction project, our client was able to maintain a contemporary feel throughout her home while utilizing the traditional tiles she loved. With careful choices and a watchful eye, a consistent palette was achieved by integrating cement tile and ceramic tiles using similar colors and patterns.

Now, let's take a look at our clients project. She wanted to convey a modern yet contemporary feel throughout her home. She chose the Malibu Catalina A tile pattern from our Malibu Tile collection of hand-painted tiles for the backsplash. It should be noted that to make the Malibu tiles, tile artisans utilize the time-honored Cuerda Seca (dry cord) technique. As a result, this method causes a slight relief from pooled glazes, which in turn make this ceramic tile collection a true classic.

While ceramic tiles grace the backsplash, the client's bathroom floor features handmade encaustic cement tiles from our Traditional Collection. Because these tiles are individually handmade, customization is a highly decorative benefit to consider, as our client did when she chose the Toscana series of handmade cement tiles. From the countertop to the vanity to the tiles, mixing materials and patterns is made simpler with customization services. With nearly 90 colors available in the Heritage Color Palette to select from, Avente can help you select the right colors to complement any look or décor you would like to showcase.
