1. Use More Than One Color or Shape
Paloma is a particularly versatile tile because it’s available in five unique shapes and seven chic neutral tones. If your space needs a facelift, consider a mix-and-match look for a contemporary style with plenty of contrast. The simplest way to do this is to pair two (or more) colors that complement each other and use them both in your design. From a simple alternating pattern to an interesting randomized look, contrasting tile colors will be eye-catching and on-trend.
For a more complex tile arrangement, you can even mix different Paloma tile shapes together in the same space. Contrasting textures and shapes, even in the same hue, will pack a visual punch. This can be as simple as using 4x16 tiles on one wall and long hex tiles on another wall to mix it up. Paloma is also available in 3x6, picket, rhomboid and bevel varieties, so it’s easy to be creative with this tile line.

2. Pair Matte & Glossy Tiles Together
Another way to enhance a tile wall, backsplash or floor is to use a mix of glossy and matte ceramic tiles together. Paloma’s Alabaster and Cotton options are both available in matte and glossy finishes, so you can mix it up for a subtle difference in texture that helps each tile stand out.

3. Design an Ombre Tile Effect
If your wall, shower or backsplash is in need of some added flair and personality, why not make it truly memorable? Ombre-style tile designs are a contemporary trend we love, and Paloma’s long hex shape is a perfect candidate for this modern look. All you need is three or more tile colors to arrange in a light-to-dark gradient on the wall.

For instance, start with Paloma Cotton at the top, work your way to a mid-tone like Paloma Denim and finish with the dark Paloma Steel at the bottom. This can create a striking and unique accent wall that’s sure to become the focal point of the room.

4. Go Beyond Subway Tile
If you love the classic style of a subway tile backsplash but want to add a little “something different,” there are plenty of ways to do so with Paloma. Go for a subway tile look with a twist when you use picket-shaped tiles instead of the traditional rectangles. Or add dimension and shine with a glossy beveled subway tile to make your backsplash stand out.
