The checkerboard design is a staple in every decorator's playbook. Black and white tile combinations are timeless and blend with every decor style. This variation on the classic design features a matte glaze for a beautiful satin finish. Use this porcelain mosaic tile for kitchens, baths, and other high use areas. Be creative and cut the mosaic into strips or shapes as a decorative accent to other tiles. The matte finish does tone down the colors making them appear muted. If you are looking for a bright black and white tile please see our gloss glazed selections.
