introducing #tileblueprint

by clé tile | published: Nov 26, 2019

we often get asked by our clients and followers for details on how to achieve the look of some of the most popular installations on social media. to get a certain look, it’s about more than just the tile choice; it’s about grout choice, cutting, installation methods, etc. each #tileblueprint will give you the secret “recipes” behind some of these iconic looks.

one such look is the backsplash (above) in designer emily henderson’s kitchen. emily is a host with hgtv and a best-selling author with a strong commitment to approachable home style for everyone. for this #tileblueprint, we’ve broken down this installation from her recent modern english country kitchen project into 3 easy steps:

1) select clé weathered white 2″x6″ zellige tile
2) stagger the tiles in a classic subway pattern, with a minimal grout joint
3) finish with avalanche glazed tile grout
