Throughout my many remodels, makeovers, and renovations, there are few things that are as permanent and as impactful as a good tile. Not only can a good tile make the space, but it can also set the tone or style for any room and make it something that feels special. And while it is no secret that I love the visual impact a good tile can make (see my patio, master bathroom, kitchen, and modern-deco kitchen) – selecting the right one can be overwhelming especially when you might not live somewhere where you can readily visit a large showroom or a see a selection of tiles in person, which is why we decided to pull this post together.

Not to mention you can get free or very affordable samples sent out before you make your decision to purchase. Many of the tiles and vendors below we have used in projects and the others (although we haven’t seen in person) we love them aesthetically. So to help you navigate through the many online options we pulled together a roundup of our favorite tiles from some of our favorite vendors online.

  1. This is an incredible resource Emily and team. Thank you.

  2. Incredible! Now could you please do this Roundup with German vendors?

    Cheers from Germany,
    Melanie

  3. This. Is. Awesome.

  4. Can you put the link in for #9 on the Overstock group? A 2×2 matte black hex is what I’m looking for! Thanks!!!

  5. Wow. Amazing!!! Thank you SO much! Did I miss the source of the bathroom tile in the first picture? Of course that’s the one I love most!

  6. I love you guys for these sources. You and your team are so generous.

    xo

  7. WOW! This is a killer round up! Of course, pinning for future reference! Thank you!

  8. Amazing resource, thank you!

    I don’t see one of my favorites here, so let me give a shout out to Heath! Hand made field tile and dimensional tiles using multilayers of glazes to get beautiful variance of color. It’s like the Farrow&Ball of tile glazing.

    http://www.heathceramics.com

    1. We LOVE heath as well and use them constantly as a resource for tile, but for this roundup we just included options that were ready to purchase and in stock online. We have another big tile roundup happening where we will include all of our favorites (both online and through a showroom). xx

  9. Could you do a post about pairing tile? I can usually find one tile I like for the floor for instance, but have a hard time then picking the tub/shower tile for the walls and floor. Let alone if you then want a 4th tile for the walls of the bathroom…

    1. Yes, please. I get overwhelmed with the pairings. Is there a general design rule about larger pattern and more intricate pattern applications?

    2. Second! Would love to see this!

    3. Third time’s a charm!! Yes to pairing post!

  10. Just finished our bath, so I can truly say that this is a GREAT resource all in one place!

  11. Ho.ly. smokes! What a resource! Currently tile shopping for our new construction master bath and Everytime ingot to the end of a group I thought the post would end, but there was another group!! I have spent HOURS tile shopping. THANK YOU for this!!

    Question–i like some home Depot options…the more graphic ones. What are your thoughts on big box stores sources for things like this?? Will every single kitchen and bathroom for the next 10 years have the exact tile bc it’s the one you get at Lowe’s/home Depot?

  12. Love this! Can you do a post on where/when to use each type of tile? For example I’m in love with several of the marble options but don’t know if that’s a great choice for my one and only bathroom because I’ve heard marble has higher maintenance than other materials. Also love cement but have heard they don’t hold up well to wear and tear/getting things dropped on them. Tell me how worried I need to be about these things! haha

    1. If you are tidy and it’s just adults in the house, marble tile can be great (make sure it isn’t too thin and that you buy some extra in case it’s needed later though). But if you have little boys that will be using the room, maybe rethink it.

  13. Thank you SO MUCH for this. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  14. Yes! This is great! I’m definitely in the group that doesn’t have a big tile showroom out my back door (in small-town Kansas). Thank you for this great resource!

  15. Great post!

  16. I am so endlessly grateful for you! Thank you for sharing your amazing taste and sources and sense of fun design with us! You’re the best!

  17. LOVE this roundup! I think this will go down as one of my favorite posts ever!

    Do you ever work with Akdo? They have some GORGEOUS marble mosaics with metallic inlays I’ve been eyeing…

  18. My socks were knocked off – thank you for this wonderful post!

  19. What about Walker Zanger?! Great resource for stone, ceramic, concrete and porcelain tiles, slabs and beautiful mosaics.

  20. Great post and thanks so much for the extensive and beautiful tiles. Also, the huge range in prices is very much appreciated.

  21. Thank you! So helpful to have all these links in one place 🙂

  22. I have been drooling for an hour looking at this post. You guys KILLED it!

  23. You missed TileDaily. Great resource.

  24. Such a great post! Super helpful!

  25. Fantastic resource. Thank you, thank you, thank you! But this post leaves me with so many questions! I sincerely hope that there are multiple follow-up posts coming later in this year or next year! Such as – Any tips on whether it’s best to mix tiles – one type on wall, and another type on floor, for instance? Or whether it’s best to pick one tile, and use it on both the wall and floor? Also, for those concerned about slipping on the floor, is there any particular tile that is better for floors than others? Is there any particular tile that is better for places where there is likely to be a ton of moisture – such as a bathroom? Is it faux-pas to have the same tile throughout your house, in the entry-way, bathroom, and kitchen for example?Which type of tile requires the least amount of upkeep, and is likely to last the longest? Seems like there’s a lot more discussion that can be had re tile . . . . Thanks EHD for another great roundup!

  31. Well if its not in this line up, its just not even made. Thanks for the research!

  32. Emily,
    You know what they say” imitation is the best from of flattery”! Thank you & your husband for the kitchen posts, I used your idea’s but chose 3×12 ceramic uneven white tiles LOVE!!! The tile place tried to talk me into white grout….I told them I wanted ultra white grout, she said no you don’t. WELL I brought their suggestion home and it wasn’t “ultra white.” So I went back after I showed my husband, brought the ultra white back and BAM! That was all it took! I LOVE LOVE my kitchen.
    Thank you both,
    Have a Merry Christmas

  34. Hi Emily,
    We ordered what looked like a beautiful tile from Lowe’s and it arrived all scratched up because at the factory in China nobody bothered to put any paper in between the layers. Now we can take it back but if we reorder the same situation will likely recur since there is no way to communicate with the factory and Lowe’s can do nothing. So I guess my comment is can you do a round-up of tile that is made in USA (or Canada) with good customer service that can fix things when they go wrong (I realize that you get free stuff for sponsorship so your customer service interactions is different to mine). This is not specific to tiling, but everything else you feature as well. I would rather have those reliable resources than a round up of cheap stuff from around the web.

  35. I just picked up 6″ handmade tiles made in Petaluma for a kitchen wall project. Really excited to use them and I love supporting Artists! http://www.flmceramics.com/tile
