Marble Wall Tiles: A Timeless Choice

Choosing wall tiles is a big choice—after all, a room only has one floor, but it has four walls. It’s a highly visible surface in any space, so you want to feel confident in the tiles and design you choose. One question we hear a lot is how to strike a balance and choose a look that is timeless enough to look good in 10 or 20 years, but not so safe that it feels boring. For us, that means thinking about materials like marble; after all, homeowners have chosen marble tile for walls thousands of years, so it stands to reason it will still be appealing a few decades down the road. 

Using Marble Tile for Walls in Every Room of the House

We think marble wall tiles look great in every room of a home, but there are two spaces where we see customers being especially happy with the results of installing marble wall tile: bathrooms and kitchens. 

• Bathrooms: Whether you want to create a spa-like sanctuary, or simply give a plain powder room a high-impact upgrade, adding marble wall tile to a bathroom is always a good move. You can unify all the parts of a bathroom by choosing the same color of marble throughout, and add visual interest with different shapes or patterns. For instance, you could stagger subway tile horizontally on the main walls, and vertically orient the same marble tile for shower walls.  

• Kitchens: In the heart of your home, marble kitchen wall tiles can be used to achieve a variety of looks. We especially love exploring different marble finishes in the kitchen—brushed or tumbled tiles look more rustic and timeworn, while the more reflective surface of a polished marble wall tile adds an elegant, minimalist vibe.

The Ultimate Classic: Pair White and Black Marble Wall Tiles

No talk of marble wall tiles would be complete without mentioning one of our favorite pairings of all time: the classic combo of white and black. Black marble offers a dark, moody depth that truly pops against lighter, brighter shades of white marble. Using black marble wall tiles to finish the border on an all-white marble tile wall, arranging square black tiles with white rectangles in a basketweave pattern, and adding a sprinkling of black hexagons among an all-white marble mosaic are just a few of our favorite ways to incorporate black marble wall tiles.
