Sometimes called scallop tiles or mermaid tiles, fish scale tile is teardrop shaped tile that shows off various sizes and colors.

What Fish Scale Tile Colors To Choose?

Fish scale tiles are usually used for bringing a seaside or mermaid feel to the space, so they are taken in all the possible ocean shades: aqua, light and pale green, grey, all kinds of blues and navy. Still, you may take any other color: tan, beige, blush, white, even black and others depending on the space. Consider adding texture with fish scale Zellige or matte tile that looks even more spectacular than usual.

What Tile To Use With Fish Scale Tiles?

Fish scale tiles will look great paired with some simple tile: penny, subway, even herringbone but all of them should be neutral as the main character will be fish scale tile. I wouldn’t recommend using fish scale tile with geometric ones as they won’t look cohesive.

How To Incorporate Fish Scale Tile Into Bathrooms?

The most popular idea is making an accent wall using fish scale tile, and this wall is usually in the shower, or the whole shower is clad with such tiles, or it can be around the sinks. Another idea is rocking fish scale tiles all over the bathroom but keep them neutral as too bold tiles all over can be overwhelming. Get inspired!
