Mermaid and Fish Scale Tile Ideas for 2018

January 10, 2018

Fish scale tile

Get out of the way boring square and subway tile! Make way for mermaid and fish scale tile. This shape is popping up unexpectedly in all sorts of spaces and us mer-folk couldn’t be more excited. Also known as a scallop tile pattern, you can find these now on walls, floors, kitchen backsplashes, and even outdoors.

These tiles come in two main sizes (large and small), but the colors are endless. You can combine pastel tiles with metallic cabinetry in your kitchen, or add a bold mermaid colored wall with Moroccan fish scale tiles in your bathroom.  Makes you think about replacing that old cracked tile, doesn’t it!

Check out the fun ideas below to get your creative juices flowing.  Let me know which one you like the best!


Mermaid Kitchen Backsplash tile ideas


The kitchen backsplash is a focal point and gives you an opportunity to express your personality for all who enter your home.  Us mermaids can express our creative sides with color and class.

This teal color tile backsplash pops with any type of wood and particularly well with white appliances and brass accents. This is the color green you would expect on a mermaid tail!

The neutral color grey adds a subtle and modern feel. The gift of grey goes great with black or white so the cabinetry or hardware could be either! Winning!

I love the black and white kitchen!  With a deeper color of backsplash, you can have lighter wood and white cabinets. It also matches everything so if you already have a color scheme it wouldn’t throw things off!

This is a little different. Still the fish scale tile shape, but with a more speckled look.

Love this eye-catching ombre look of colored and white tiles. A wave-like illustration which lasts the test of time as home decor. Love the white and wood mix. Well done!

Personally, white is the classiest choice for ceramic tiles. Whether you do a white or black grout it matches with any wood or appliance but I have to say this lighter wood is looking really good!  It makes any room feel open and fresh.

Most houses have a guest bathroom with just a toilet. Why not add some creative tile to the mirror wall. Adds depth, class, and texture to the small room.

Good luck with your project!
