Mixed Materials

Sometimes just one material doesn’t achieve the design aesthetic you want in a space. That’s where mixed material tile comes in. With infinite design applications and innovative manufacturing, this type of tile comes from using multiple materials to achieve an elevated, unique look.

Mixed material tile artistically pairs various combinations of ceramic, stone, metal, glass, basalt (glazed lava stone) and shell together to create a dynamic design with depth and substance. The design possibilities with these pairings are endless – whether its ceramic and stone, stone and metal, metal and glass, or glass and shell, suppliers are constantly finding new and innovative ways to seamlessly merge materials together, often in the form of a mosaic. While this tile tends to be more expensive than single material options, more affordable options have become available in recent years that mimic the look of expensive designs.

How to Select Mixed Material Tile for Your Home

When selecting mixed material tile for your home, be mindful of both the application and maintenance. Usage can vary with this type of tile and there is no “one size fits all” rule for where it can be applied. Mixed material is typically used as wall tile, but certain types can be used as flooring. Depending on the materials used, only some types should be used within a shower or other moisture-prone areas and varieties that contain metal cannot be used in areas with high temperatures such as near a stove or fireplace. The maintenance for it will also vary depending on what it is made of and some may even come with special care instructions for both maintenance and installation.
