Can’t find it? Create it! Customize your tile

So, you’ve looked EVERYWHERE. You’ve checked the local shops in town and all of their tile looks kind of the same… you’ve seen it all before. Now you’ve got color samples galore and you still just can’t find your dream tile…. sigh.  You’re probably thinking; why is this so hard?!

Don’t give up!  If you can’t find it, you can create it, get a sample of it and make sure its just right.  And it’s really easy to do with modwalls® Brio® custom blending tool.

Its not just easy… its actually fun!

Whatever you dream up, you can create with modwalls® 80 stock tile colors and four tile finishes in our 3/4″ Brio® tile line.

Keep it classic and subtle.  Here’s a white tile blend with a textural twist created with the addition of Brio® Clear tiles and  Brio® Pearl, iridescent tiles.

Go to the dark side, in a totally modern way.    We absolutely love this dark and sophisticated Brio® custom backsplash next to aqua blue paint and a totally unexpected rug.  The look is super fresh!

Pump up the color volume as much as you want with your Brio® custom blend.  One of our all time favorite installations is at number nine restaurant in Long Beach.  Love the mix of soothing gray with happy hints of oranges, reds, blues and greens. It’s a mix made in heaven.

Ready to play?  Mix away! -> modwalls® custom blending tool.

    The designs of the tiles are very beautiful. By seeing these designs we can be able to get ideas how to decorate our living room and office with the tiles. The tiles designs are good looking.

      Hi Carol,

      I believe the white custom blend you’re looking at is 60% Bright White, 20% Opal Pearl, and 20% Clear White.

      Best regards,
