Create Impact with Tile in Small Spaces

I recently took a tour of Natural Stone Design Gallery in Sacramento and was blown away with all their handcrafted tile options they have to make your spaces truly stunning. I’ve partnered with Natural Stone Design Gallery to showcase ideas on how you can create impact with tile in small spaces. Their beautiful showroom is located in Sacramento, CA and filled with exclusive handmade tile options including handmade ceramic tile, imported Italian marble tile, Mosaic tiles, cement tiles and much more.


When visiting Natural Stone Design Gallery, I would recommend making an appointment to meet with one of their onsite designers to discuss your project. Bring inspiration pictures and be ready to be blown away with all their tile options and colorways. Their designers will walk you through the design process helping you select the right tile for your space.


Natural Stone Design Gallery carries many exclusive brands, a few of my favorites tiles were from Sonoma Tilemakers, made in Sonoma, California. Their tiles are amazing and came in so many colors. I also loved the tile options from Walker Zanger.


Below is a small sampling of some of the tiles I love from Natural Stone Design Gallery, all the tiles shared come in various colorways.

They also have Quartz Counter top options. If you have a small project be sure and visit the stone yard for remnants priced at steep discounts.

I love how selecting the right tile in a small space can make a room come alive by adding color, pattern and the good drama. Small spaces make it budget friendly to splurge on handcrafted tile.

KITCHEN IDEAS // In kitchens, create a pretty focal point above your stove with a tile mosaic pattern back splash, or a tile pattern design above the stove. For me subway tile is a classic forever tile, using glazed crackle subway is a great way to add a timeless look in your kitchen and elevates the look of subway tile.

BATHROOM IDEAS // Small bathrooms are a great for adding a big punch of style with tile. In a shower add a niche inset and use splurge on a pretty pattern tile. I also love the idea of adding a marble slab in a shower niche, talk about stunning!

LAUNDRY ROOMS // Add a fun element with patterned tile flooring in a laundry room, or use wood-look tile laid in a chevron pattern on the floor.
