I would love to find the tile used in the attached photo for my new space
Can anyone tell me or direct me to the source of the tile.
Thanks

Those look like wave wall panels, which you can find at several places, including ebay (85. per 6) You might check for a fire rating - I'm not aware of one.

Thank very much.
Now my question is what do you like of the tile for my space. I've attached a couple more photos.

It makes a strong statement -- I can see why you are attacted to it.

But for me it's a bit too strong, and cleaning all those ridges looks like a bit of nightmare.

sgwats, are you changing (1) the wall tiles, (2) the floor tiles, (3) the backsplash -- all of them, or some of them ? :)

I don't think that's a good choice especially for around the stove. Here's why: the purpose of a backsplash is to keep grease and splatters off the walls. The wavy BS will be very difficult to clean. To me, it isn't that attractive but to each his own. Ha, just glanced up at Brenda's remark and she's saying the same thing. hummmm

Ed. the 1st photo shows the complete new reno, except a BS. I am soliciting ideas.

leelee. yes the purpose of the BS is for grease and splatters. This tile is a BS tile, but I appreciate your thoughts, it is a consideration if I go with the gymsum tile. Don't we clean the BS anyway. .

I would not put that tile with your modern island at all. You need to go to an Ann Sacks/Walter Zenger kind of custom tile place. Not a big box and not an average tile store. You need a designer to help you. Are you close to a big city? That tile would look awful with all the movement in your granite. You need something more quiet with what you have. Not checkerboard either. All one thing...like a consistent stone without fluctuations.

The tile looks like Porcelanosa Creta tile.

While I love the Porcelanosa tile, I agree with the statement above,,it would not go well with your kitchen. If you look at your inspiration photo, their countertop is stainless steel, which does not compete with the wavy tile. Have you thought of using a colored glass backsplash?

Agree with above.....something simple with your counter would be better. Ann Sacks Tile is amazing! Glass subway very cool. Symmetry Ceramic Art Tile - Ann Sacks Tile & Stone Modern Master bathroom

I think I'd get a bit seasick looking at that backsplash especially after a glass of wine!

Thank you One & All ! I AGREE with the considerations, which is why I am undecided and have not completed my kitchen yet. ( Help) I guess when I see it I will know.

I like the idea of glass and agree simple sophisicated is best. What color should I go with and where do I get the glass tile.

sgwats, your photos show neutrals, so the field is open. There comes a point where you have to do some due diligence w local resources. You have reached that point and then some. Best of luck.
