Custom Tile

Did you know that you can custom design tiles for your home? My favorite source for custom tile is Tabarka Studio. Pick a pattern or shape to start the process – then color the pattern sheets using the tile color palette. Once you are happy with the design, order a sample tile set for a small fee. These tiles have a terra cotta base making the tile a bit thicker than ceramic tiles.  Check out the website – www.tabarkastudio.com

Here are a few examples I have customized for clients…

This patterned tile is the highlight of the laundry room!!


Custom backsplash tile using two of the shapes with a pattern. The subtle coloring of this tile is the perfect compliment to this beautiful Lacanche Range!!
See detail below…

Tabarka Studio also makes trim tiles to match the tile colors for a finished edge detail.
I will share a few tips I have learned…
1) the tiles will have some variation for a handmade look
2) the grout color is a big part of the design as it becomes another color to consider when designing the tiles
3) if you choose the wrong grout color, no worries – there is grout stain to fix it!!

Time to get back to work on a new tile design for my current project… MHD
