The main piece to our kitchen renovation I was set on in the design was a show stopping tile that would become the focal of our entire space. I love handcrafted zellige tile for it’s raw, natural beauty, but it was out of budget for this project. I really wanted to take the tile floor to ceiling in the entire kitchen to help it feel bigger and more open.
I found many alternatives but none that even remotely compared to the raw edge, overall style, and size of zellige tiles. Except for one. This hidden gem tile is beautiful and available at your local hardware store. Can you even believe that?! Find the Jeffrey Court Cotton Blossom tile here.
It has the same glossy effect, raw edges giving it a hand-cut hand-crafted look, comes in a similar size, and three color options.
This tile would look amazing laid so many ways, but I chose to run them vertical. We did use a laser level to keep our lines straight and level, but we chose not to use spacers. I love the organic edges and wanted to keep this raw look. It definitely makes the tile so much of what it is. We butted each tile up against each other and followed the laser level line. After, we used a white grout for a clean, simple finish.
I absolutely love the tile and it became the statement of this kitchen, exactly like I hoped for. Let me know what you think of the tile in the comments!
