Where to use Fragments

Fragments are designed for wall applications because the mosaic surface is not flat. With mismatched patterns, strong grout lines, and bold colors, Fragments are a great choice for a contemporary kitchen, bath or accent wall. These tiles will look marvelous in a mid-Century remodel or modern home with clean lines and neutral palette that needs color. The small and large square formats are playful and fun for casual and contemporary living. Consider using the Bar Format in a more formal or traditional style since the narrow cuts provide a softer look by blending the pattern.
