All about bookmatch wall tiles

Bookmatch wall tiles add great aesthetic impact and depth to rooms. In this article we will look at everything you need to know about this technique that is climbing the ranks of the most popular trends among designers and planners.
Symmetry between two different wall tiles and a striking visual effect: the bookmatch technique has conquered the world of architecture and design; a true harmony that enhances the natural beauty of the materials and creates a truly unique sense of continuity.

What is and how does the bookmatch technique work?

The meaning of this technique can be traced right from its name: bookmatch tiles bring to mind the layout of an open book. The two pages correspond to the two tiles, while the central junction of the book becomes invisible and enhances the symmetry between the two tiles.
To achieve an effect of continuity, it is essential to use two mirrored slabs, carefully placed side by side.

The visual result is an elegant and original surface that optically increases the depth and width of spaces, creating a unique aesthetic impact. This technique can also be used to reproduce the patterns of natural stone, such as granite or quartz, thanks to modern production technology.

Marble-effect bookmatch: design ideas

Large ceramic slabs with marble or stone effect are the most widely used tools to achieve this interior design trend because they create true works of art.

The marble effect is amazingly realistic and can be used in many different ways to create an elegant and sophisticated design. For example, it can be used to clad entire walls or only selected parts, floors and tops for kitchens and bathrooms, as well as to create surfaces for furniture and furnishing design elements.

A very creative way of using the marble effect bookmatch is to play with colors and shades, resulting in eye-catching and surprising contrasts. For example, slabs of black and white marble or pink and grey marble can be combined to achieve a striking visual impact.

For such a marble-effect bookmatch project, for example, it’s possible to combine slabs from the Level Marmi collection.

An interesting idea is to use this technique to create seamless tiling between different rooms. For example, a bookmatch kitchen top can be placed on the peninsula, which extends to the dining table in the living room, thus creating a very elegant visual continuity effect. In fact, the technique can also be used to create surfaces for furniture and furnishing design elements.

Marble-effect bookmatch expresses its full potential in bathroom wall tiles, giving a striking and luxury final effect that creates an atmosphere of elegance and refinement. In particular, this technique is perfectly suited to the large slabs used to tile the shower walls, which seem to blend together to create a single pattern.
