Finger tile, stacked tile, pencil mosaic... These are just some of the many names for this signature shape we call Kit Kat Tile. There is a reason for this finger shape glazed handmade tiles’ popularity: Emulating the funny kit kat candy, they have the magical ability to transport you to your favorite vibes, evoking feelings of joy, interesting and pleasant. Looking to add Kit Kat Tile into your own space? Here are some ideas to do it the right way with our new arrival tile collection.

1. Short, Long, or even Longer?

First, determine what size shape is perfect for your space. At MM-Mosaic, we provide various different sizes of Kit Kat tiles: Short, long, and even longer. In general, the size of your space should inform the size of the handmade tile you pick. For larger spaces like a shower or accent wall, we suggest choosing the longer tile choice. If you’re working with a space that’s under three square feet or even less, a short tile will make a large impact. Here is what we suggested but anything possible in the right setting:

Short Kit Kat Tiles

Use for: Space under 5 feet.

Project ideas: accent pieces, tabletops, shower niches.

Long Kit Kat Tile

Use for: Spaces over 5 feet, and under 20 feet.

Project ideas: Small backsplashes, stove splashes, accents.

Even Longer Kit Kat Tile

2. Take Grout into Consideration

You will also want to take the grout colors and lines into consideration while picking a size. While gorgeous, choosing short Kit Kat Tiles in a larger space can be too busy for some, unless you pick the current grout color. Selecting a grout color that’s similar to the handmade tile color makes the grout lines less apparent, creating a space that looks larger.

3. Kit Kat Tile Orientation

Once you know the size and the grout you prefer, you might order the Kit Kat Tile in sheets, that are mesh-mounted. This makes the process of installation more convenient. Another design choice is tile orientation. The most popular orientation for Kit Kat tile is to place the tiles with the stacked pattern, with all the handmade tiles facing the same upwards direction. Such as vertical style and horizontal style.

Though facing the same orientation, there are various options, too. Like the custom pattern. This is a combination of different colors that creates a mountain appearance. The custom style is a gorgeous choice that looks best with our mixed-color Kit Kat Tile.

4. Color and Surface

Ultimately, you may want to pick a color and surface. It’s no surprise, but turquoise green shades tend to be a favorite with the Kit Kat tile since it resembles a forest, mountain, grassland. We have found that natural colors with a glossy glazed surface tend to open up space because the glossy surface reflects light. Darker palettes and a matte surface will conversely absorb the light, making your space feel tranquil and cozier.
