Murayah Wall Murals > Wall Murals and Tile Murals FAQ's
How are the Murayah™ tiles made?
Our artisans create the tiles using our proprietary technology for hand-printing images on stone. We bring original art to life on a different medium, suitable for everyday living. The Murayah™ collection maintains the integrity of the original painting, while adding the dimension and beauty of natural stone. Each marble tile is quarried in Italy and tumbled to reveal its own natural veins and unique character.
Where can your tiles be installed?
Our tiles are a natural complement for a kitchen backsplash, bathroom, foyer, powder room, wine cellar, bar, restaurant, hotel lobby or any other interior space. Our diversified art collection is suitable for any type of interior décor, whether Tuscan, Victorian, traditional, French Country, Mediterranean, Spanish or contemporary.
Are your murals and tiles considered valuable art?
Yes, they are. Although our artisans were not engaged in painting the original art, they add to it another dimension of depth and longevity by creating it on natural stone.
The result is an original masterpiece and authentic representation of the world’s best artists.
All our tiles are individually crafted; no two tiles are the same.
Will the watermarks show on the actual tiles?
No, the actual tiles are watermark free. All our on-line images carry visible, as well as invisible watermarks, for the purpose of protecting creator’s rights. Any attempt to download or copy art images or content from our web site will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
How durable are the tiles?
In addition to the esthetic value, our tiles are very durable and can withstand the conditions of everyday living.

Do tiles need to be grouted?
It is not mandatory to grout tiles, unless in a shower application. However, applying grout will contribute to the uniformity of the surface, especially when using field tiles in your installation.
Can you custom size a mural?
Mural sizes in our price list are based on the proportions of the original painting. However, there are additional sizes that can be created.
Please contact our art department with your request.
What tile size shall I choose?
Our murals and accent tiles are offered in 4” x 4”, 6” x 6” & 8” x 8” tumbled Botticino marble tiles (chipped, rounded edges) and 6” x 6” honed tiles (straight edges). 6” x 6” tiles are most popular for applications around the home. 8” x 8” tiles are typically used for larger size murals or commercial applications.
Do you supply field tiles that match murals or Accent tiles?
Yes, we do. If you wish to surround the mural or accent tiles with matching field tiles, or simply use them in your project, we offer Antique tumbled & honed Botticino marble tiles.
Our tumbled marble field tiles are offered in 4”x 4”, 6”x 6” & 8”x 8”.
Our honed, straight edge marble field tiled are offered in 6” x 6” only.
Do I have to purchase the moldings with the murals?
It is not mandatory to purchase the moldings, however they contribute significantly to the look
of the murals and bring out their artistic value. Simply put, a mural without a molding
is like a picture without a frame. The Durango Rail travertine molding offered in our collection is tumbled and antiqued to complement our murals.
Are tile colors identical to the pictures presented in your catalogue and web site?
We have tried to present the color and character of the tiles as accurately as possible. However, due to the nature of photography and different computer or printing devices, there may be some variation in color and texture between the actual tiles and what appears in our catalogue or web site.
