With the rise of the kitchen being the focal point in the homes of many individuals, the variety of shapes and sizes of tiles has risen accordingly. No one shape has amassed such great popularity in its available sizes and textures in our industry as the Arabesque has. The shape of the Arabesque dates back to Byzantine Art and the Roman Empire through the present. The numerous colors and available styles has made this shape one of our most popular shapes to be used when creating a traditional kitchen backsplash or for a Moroccan feel in a home. The Beveled Arabesque has survived the test of time and has become a staple in traditional homes as their kitchen backsplash. The great advantage of the Beveled Arabesque, especially in the White Glossy color is that the clean lines of the Arabesque are accentuated with the Beveled edge while creating a very sleek and clean look. Arabesque Shaped tiles are found not only as Arabesque Backsplash tile, but also as arabesque floor tile. Some of our ceramic vendors such as Ken Mason Tile offer Arabesque shaped tiles that are made out of Terra Cotta and are perfectly suitable for floor usage while creating a unique and fun shape for the floor. Some of the Arabesque shaped Terra Cotta’s even come with the option of imprinting a decorative image on them as a deco. This gives the user the option of creating a stunning backsplash of Deco’s in the Arabesque shapes, or as decorative keys throughout a floor.
With the rise in popularity of the white Arabesque tile and Arabesque ceramic tile, many manufacturers have decided to implement the Arabesque tile shape in a unique and creative way. Artistic tile for instance has created several water-jet patterns that implement Glass and Stone or Mother of Pearl and Stone in a variety of Arabesque shapes and patterns. The Toledo Classique from Artistic Tile features Crema Marfil marble along with Calacatta Gold marble with the Crema Marfil as the main Arabesque shaped tile and Calacatta as its accent. The Veneto Bianco pattern features a slightly modified Arabesque shaped tile that contains Bianco Carrara and Mother of Pearl in beautiful mosaic pattern arrangement. The ability to mix-and-match various materials and implement them in a popular arrangement and shape such as the popular Arabesque tile has allowed the tile industry to remain creative and up-to-date with popular designs.
The attractiveness of the beveled Arabesque as a backsplash tile and the overall usage as only a backsplash tile has paved the roads for manufacturers such as Arto Brick to create Arabesque Patterns in their concrete material for floor usage. Arto Brick has been revolutionizing concrete tiles for many years and it only makes sense for them to include these popular shapes in their large catalog of products. The Arabesque shapes and sizes that Arto Brick creates allow for our customers to create custom sizes and finishes so that their homes are unique and special in their own way.
