Home Design: 3D Tiles


In home remodeling and design, the products and materials for your kitchen, bathroom, basement, or addition projects are constantly improving in quality and aesthetics.

The manufactures have studied visually what the eye is drawn to and decided to give these tiles some volume and texture to make these features more interactive, engaging, and appealing. Particularly popular was the idea of making the surface of a tile appear wavy. This style caters to the reflection of nature mimicking the waves of the ocean, the sands of the deserts, and affects of the winds. Most commonly, these tiles are used as wall tiles to create accent walls, adding interest to a space without over cluttering.

Using these tiles in your home remodeling projects does come with some pros and cons. Lets take a look at a few:


  • With 3D wavy tiles, the seams remain virtual invisible.
  • The waves allow you to make visual adjustments to the geometry of the room. Horizontal waves expand the room visually. To “stretch” the wall in height, you need to position the waves vertically.


  • The only con with wavy tile is care maintenance. Washing wavy tiles can be more difficult than flat or smooth tiles because of its creases.
