Tile Color Shown: Sugar in Scalene

Want to give your space a fresh perspective that won't ever grow out of style? Look no further than Sugar, a versatile matte white tile that effortlessly upgrades any room. Its soft shade and low color variation lend it a clean and contemporary look that goes well with any aesthetic without ever getting old.

White kitchen tile is an easy choice when you're looking to brighten up your space. Square offset tile is a strong design choice, lending timeless architectural interest to a white backsplash. Because its low color variation, our Sugar glazes is especially good and balancing out rustic  textures like unfinished wood and exposed brick.

But tile isn't just for backsplashes--consider using white tile for both your backsplash and kitchen island for even bigger impact. Adding white subway tile to your island will also lend it a hip coffee shop-inspired spot that's perfect for gathering around.

For an ultra modern look, consider a tight grout line for your Sugar tile. This kitchen's offset pattern blends seamlessly with the rest of the space. However, the tight grout line also accentuates the handcrafted texture of the tile, lending a lovely artisanal touch to the otherwise sleek aesthetic.

If you're looking to use matte white tile for the walls, consider contrasting it with a Handpainted tile floor. Sugar's matte finish is the perfect tile to anchor playful pops of pattern, like our Handpainted Padma Tile.

Sugar also lends itself well to straight set patterns and can be both surprisingly eclectic and quietly soothing. This charming white bathroom tile is a backdrop for a mix of carefully curated and vintage accents.

In contrast, this ultra minimalist tub is surrounded by high walls of white straight set tile. Even and consistent shades add to this bathroom's quietly impactful design.

But of course, there's always room for fun when it comes to tile. Sugar is no exception. This kitchen's slightly oversized herringbone pattern features dark gray grout to help the backsplash really pop.

This bathroom's white herringbone pattern actually helps to expand the space with its fresh palette, subtle grout line, and dynamic diagonal angles.

Hexagon tile is a also a classic that can be upgraded with a fresh Sugar finish. We love how it creates a subtle honeycomb pattern against this vanity wall.
