A colorful kitchen with Glossy Brick in Blue

Glossy Brick by Ragno

Glossy Brick is a glazed ceramic tile inspired by the classic art of making bricks. Ragno honors the old-world beauty of brick by including slight variations in surface pattern, but the elegant glossy finish on these tiles elevates them to contemporary standards.


Glossy Brick in Beige and Black

These tiles are an elite Italian product that retails at Rubble for less than $6.00 per square foot so you can achieve a highly polished look without breaking your budget. Glossy Brick is available in a variety of hues like white, beige, gray, blue and black. You can arrange these trendy 4″ x 12″ tiles either horizontally or vertically in staggered brick patterns to achieve a unique feel for your space.
