All You Need To Know about 3D Tiles

By  |  0 Comments

3D tiles are a new type of tile design available in the market. They are becoming very popular due to their versatility.

This increased popularity is not without any reason, as their designs help you bring depth and dimension to the space. By their very nature, these tiles are quirky and quite artistic. As a plus, these 3D tiles are becoming increasingly affordable, with so many options to choose from.

Such has been their explosion that tile companies in India have an entire range dedicated to 3D tiles. These come in 600×600 mm dimensions and multiple colours, shapes, and designs.

Textured 3D tiles are chiefly made using microlens technology. The design of 3D floor tiles creates the illusion of a particular pattern that appears natural. This fascinating sight and vibe will make your guests in awe as they turn any dull space into a work of modern art. 

Where Can You Use 3D Tiles?


Well, as mentioned before, these tiles come in a broad range of features, which makes them usable practically anywhere in your home. Nevertheless, here are the top places where 3D tiles are used.


The kitchen is where you spend most of your time in the house, and that’s where memories are created. The aroma, food, and conversations all come together to make for a great space. To make this special place even more exceptional, you can opt for 3D kitchen tiles. Whether as a backsplash or countertop, you will definitely not be disappointed in using them!

With the pandemic pushing most of us into WFH or remote work, kitchens have become even more critical for combining cooking and eating with your work. While 3D tiles will immensely enhance your kitchen, you can also find more tips regarding kitchen backsplash here.


Going for novel patterns or designs is always welcome. However, just to be on the safe side, you should first try new tiles in a smaller place like the bathroom. Although it is an integral part of the house, you can quickly go for the makeover due to such less space in case something goes wrong. 3D tiles in the bathroom give you an immersive experience when it comes to design, which works the best in bathroom areas. Besides providing an excellent aesthetic appearance, these tiles are also beneficial in the long run due to their durability. Some of the most trending designs in 3D tiles are PCG Silver leaf, Statuario, and White Diamonds collection, which can be viewed here.


After the bathroom, the next best place where you can experiment with 3D tiles is your bedroom. You can simply dedicate one wall to the design of the new tiles and see the difference. Moreover, as the bedroom is where you can retreat and rejuvenate, the colours and themes brought by 3D tiles are indeed worth the investment.

Living Room

The living room, where you enjoy and entertain your guests, is an example of the type of home you are attempting to make. Getting a 3D design accent wall in your hall gives your space that opportunity to be the main topic of conversations. Be it floral, mountain, or the beach, a wide range of options is available in the market in this category.

Accent Wall

Whether it’s your living room or the study, the accent wall should always stand out. Installing 3D tiles on the accent wall will not only make it stand out as you intend to but also make for an aesthetically unique design.

Cocktail Bar

The cocktail bar needs as much pizzazz as the rest of the house, if not more. Most of the time, the bar counter is fancier than your dining or living area (and quite rightly so). Adding the sass of 3D tiles will give the space that edge to make it appear slightly different from the rest of your home. Geometric designs or digital print patterns are good ideas to begin searching for the tiles.

5 Trending Designs In 3D Tiles 

With such a broad range of varieties available, essentially all the spaces of your house are ready to be fitted with 3D wall tiles. As a downside, it might get overwhelming to know where to start. Nevertheless, you can drop your fears, as here are some popular designs to get you started.

Digital Decorative Design

Being among the most popular choices in 3D wall tiles, digital decorative designs are often cited as an amalgamation of culture and modernisation. You will mostly see designs in such tiles mixed in florals and solids. They generally make excessive use of yellow, golden, brown, and, sometimes, even a healthy dose of shimmer!

Straight-Stack Pattern

The name is fancy, but the straight-stack tile pattern simply refers to basic square or rectangular tiles set in a straight line. For those who like a simple and minimalistic look on the wall, this pattern is your go-to. They lie more on the modern side and are the best-looking ones when choosing 3D tiles.

Digital Print

Ever liked a piece of art but didn’t want to spend separately on it? 

This problem is easily solved by digital print tiles, which have images or pictures digitally imprinted onto them. They are an excellent choice if you want art and tile in the same place. 

Multi-Stone Pattern

Remember the wall that Hagrid taps into to take Harry Potter to the Diagon Alley to buy his magic school paraphernalia? And how the bricks automatically realign to let them into the magical world? Well, multi-stone patterns are something like that, except that the magic here is in the pattern. These 3D wall tiles basically have 2-3 combinations of colours of stones stacked together, which gives an appearance of a multi-stone pattern.

Charm Diamond

If ‘simple yet classy’ is what you prefer, you can go for the Charm Diamond tile pattern. These are elegant and white-dominated and are renowned for their exquisite look. They add the subtle texture in diamond shapes that’s too hard to ignore.

3D tiles can be a worthwhile investment if placed and installed correctly. If you are not sure which one will look better in your house, you can try the TriaLook feature, allowing you to choose the tiles of your liking and envision your space revamped with those tiles.
