My obsession with unfinished tile edges is nothing new, and it’s not really that they are unfinished and raw but rather that the tile doesn’t end in one clean line. There is a balance to the “unfinished look,” however. You wouldn’t want the edge to look like a fence; in order to avoid this, the scale of the tile, the room, and each individual tile’s placement is key. You will see this concept a lot on backsplashes and, in particular, as part of the image above, by Wit and Delight. If you are still here after clicking that link, thank you.
Recently, I completed this look at a client’s home in Menlo Park. We wanted to make the floor tile appear as if it always had been there. We are photographing next week; I can’t wait to share this home with you all so, stay tuned!
From the floor to climbing walls, and statement-making backsplashes, unfinished edges are pulling at my heart strings and now I’m currently obsessed.
I hope you enjoyed this manicured post.
