Texture and Dimension on Fireplaces

Three Dimensional texture is a fun way to dress up a space without adding additional color or pattern, so it’s perfect for a luxurious modern home, because it will maintain a crisp clean feel without sacrificing warmth, character or depth.

Concrete tile is becoming a more and more popular option because it lends itself quite naturally to a modern industrial feel. This is a recent project where we supplied a large dimensional octagon shaped tile for a fireplace. In this case, the designer (Andrea Beecher from CityHome Collective ) and the homeowners had a vision, and we helped make it happen. Click through and check out the rest of the project, it’s a phenomenal mid-century modern remodel in Salt Lake City, Utah.


The elongated vertical ceramic tile hexagons on this corner fireplace draw the eye up and will make a space appear taller, while the crisp white color pairs perfectly with the neutral and organic tones in the rest of the room.

Handcarved stone is a great way to add visual texture as well as an earthy feeling to your fireplace. We’ve talked about Artistic Tile’s Ambra Handcarved before, and we love the way it looks on this wall.

This is another one that we worked with Andrea Beecher and CityHome Collective on, and we both supplied and installed the Artistic Tile ceramic material on the fireplace. We used quartz slab to finish the edges to give it a clean and modern look.


This room combines two really great tile trends, the texture on the fireplace, and the pattern on the floor. The wall tile is the Topo Collection from Clayhaus Ceramics, and while it’s shown here in white, it is available in an endless array of colors, as well as several other patterns.

Another line that we are the exclusive dealer for in Utah is Arto Brick. Their offering consists of a lot more than just brick. It includes concrete and clay tiles in several styles and textures, like their 6×6 Compton, shown below.
