Pebble tiles are just that- an assortment of natural pebbles fitted together on a square mesh tile. They come in solid or multi-color designs, giving a natural look to indoor and outdoor home design.
But what sets pebble tiles apart from traditional home surfaces, such as ceramic tiles? Are they really worth it? Modern, natural and functional- here’s why pebble tiles are becoming a popular home decor trend we love.
1. Easy to install
Imagine not having to find a reliable professional and best of all- saving a huge wad of money. Pebble tiles are easy to install and affordable. In fact, you can do it yourself with a bit of guidance. You’ll want to lay out the tiles first to configure how the colors match up and also invest in a high quality grout and sealer. Follow this step by step guide to DIY.
You can get as creative as you want with pebble tiles. This unique, natural look evokes serenity with earthy tones and aesthetically satisfying textures. Use them in the shower, as a kitchen backsplash, for fireplaces, patios, pool areas or to create a walkway. Anything goes with pebble tiles!
At some point in all of our lives we’ve taken a scary little slip in the shower. But alas, ceramic tubs and tiles are a bit too smooth for proper footing, especially when you add water. Pebble tiles are uneven, making it easier for feet to grip a wet surface and avoid slipping.
4. Easy to clean
You might look at pebble tiles and think that it’s too difficult to clean with all those little grooves between the pebbles. Actually, you won’t have to exert much effort as long as you do a thorough installation. That means the tiles need to be fitted properly, while the pebbles and grout are finished with a quality sealer.
