Using a listelle that includes glass tile, like the one shown above in the kitchen backsplash, adds a touch of personality to any space.
Listelles, or pre-designed strips of stone or tile, provide an easy way to create a mosaic effect anywhere in your home. The listelle shown above combines the sparkle of glass tile with a soft matte finish cream and dark brown tile to create an interesting and contemporary look.
The Fulton Design Center showcases a broad selection of listelles to highlight your home in stone and tile. Styles range from modern glass pieces like this one to more traditional choices. With the variety of options, you can find just the right choice to fit your taste and style.
By using a listelle, a simple tile placement becomes interesting and unique. Listelles work well on kitchen backsplashes, in bathrooms or fireplace surrounds. Listelles are pre-designed and cut, making them easy to install and ensuring that they look perfect in your home.
Notice the strip of electric outlets running along the top of the kitchen backsplash at the top of the page. Selecting this option for your home allows you to have plenty of outlets without breaking up the lines of your backsplash. While you’re at it, take a look at the under-counter LED lighting to give you great task lighting for your kitchen.

Would you enjoy the impact of a strong tile design for your kitchen backsplash or shower? If your design dreams are limited by your budget, incorporating a stripe of listelles can provide the bang for fewer bucks.
You may not be familiar with listelles, but the pre-designed and cut stone or tile patterns give you the opportunity to create an interesting and unique wall or backsplash without greatly increasing your costs for materials or installation. That’s because these pieces come pre-cut and arranged on webbing to keep them much easier to install than a design created on site.
Take a look at a few of the listelles available at the Fulton Design Center. Whether you prefer a dramatic geometric such as the choice on the lower left or something more organic such as the vine design in the top row, fourth from the left, adding one or two rows of listelles can really add a wow factor to a simple tile or stone installation.
There are two approaches to incorporating a listelle into your tile or stone design. You can start by reviewing the listelle options and then select the background tile or stone that suits your choice. Or sometimes it’s easier to start with a tile that suits your other design decisions and then visit our selection of listelles to discover just the right one to suit your taste in the rest of the room.
Your grout choice will also fill in the gaps in the listelle of your choice, helping to integrate it into the final installation. Visit the Fulton Design Center to take a closer look at our rich selection of listelles and determine the right choice for your new Fulton Home.
Backsplash in a Fulton Design Center kitchen vignette.
This backsplash links the cabinets and countertops, highlights the range through a focal-point approach in the tile design, and increases the easy maintenance of the kitchen. The overall design of the inviting horizontal rectangles takes this kitchen into the range of something special. Your backsplash is the art in your kitchen – one place where you can declare your taste with an eye-catching visual.
Would you like the warmth of stone on your backsplash? Perhaps you lean toward the traditional and might select a high-gloss subway tile. This approach, once considered retro, has developed into a high-style choice for kitchens and baths. Maybe you want something modern to add color. Then you may be inclined to choose glass tile in vivid shades and tones. No matter your choice, how about adding some embossed metal tiles to bring in the bling?
With its inviting and extensive selection of tiles, listelles, which are pre-designed rows of tile or stone, materials, colors and textures, your backsplash is one of the best ways to define yourself and your style in your kitchen.
Use your cabinet and countertop choices as a starting place. Do you want a backsplash that blends in with your selections or something with a strong contrast? You might want to experiment with the Fulton Homes Kitchen Designer on our website to give you some ideas. Then visit our Fulton Design Center kitchen vignettes to see some of the choices our designers made. Once you see some of the possibilities, you can create a backsplash that suits your style and taste. The relatively small square footage of your backsplash allows you to develop the look of your dreams without a severe hit to your budget.

Listelles such as the ones shown above on display at the Fulton Design Center provide one of the best bangs for your buck when designing your new home. Just add a strip of personality along your shower at eye-level or below, or use it as a border at the top of your wall tile.
Spark up your backsplash by creating a rectangle above your stove using the listelle design you like the best. When you visit the Fulton Design Center, take a few minutes to browse your options for these accents. Color, tone and texture combine to make a rich selection of approaches to personalizing a kitchen or bath.
The geometric options work well with modern homes, although some like the diagonal squares in the bottom row of this display also have a classic appeal. Listelles also come in more organic designs. Take a look at the pattern on the top row, the fourth from the left. The vined approach would add a natural feeling to your home.
How strong do you want your accents to be overall? If you are looking for a subtle feel, choose tone combinations with minimal contrast that blend in with your other tile or stone choices. On the other hand, if you want to really showcase your accents, go for high contrast – both within the listelle itself and compared to your overall look.
Be sure to take a hands-on approach to your selection. Bring your main tile or stone selection over to this display and lay your favorites next to it to see the impact. Remember to factor in grout color. Have some fun with this choice. It’s a great way to make your Fulton Home uniquely yours.
Would you like a kitchen backsplash with panache? Listelles provide a great way to make your kitchen unique. Listelles are pre-designed borders in tile or stone with designs and even images. They are pre-set on a mesh backing so that they are easier to install.
