Elevate Your Rooms with Border Tiles & Listellos

Bring a touch of beauty and elegance to your home by installing some eye-catching listello tile. A striking border design can be the perfect accent to your room’s decor, serve as a divider between two different tiles and provide a visual break in a large stretch of field tile. Use listello tile to introduce patterns to your walls and floors—they are a fun opportunity to get creative!



Border tiles are often used in kitchens and bathrooms but can be installed in any room. Run a listello across the backsplash on your natural stone kitchen walls or in your porcelain-tiled bathroom. Interesting borders can be integrated into floors, too. Use listello as a border in a tile rug or install it in your shower pan.


The Tile Shop offers listellos in a variety of materials like ceramic, porcelain, glass, marble, slate, travertine and even a combination of stone and glass. When installing tile in any space, you can add your personal style with a decorative element to make your space unique. No matter the design of your home, we have something that will fit your style.
