    Hi, welcome to the forum.

    I have use tiles and enjoyed the result. The only thing to watch out for is to make sure you don't get specular highlights.

    You can shoot a tile and enlarge it to the same image size as your camera gives for an electronic background as well.

    Hardware stores sell them. They come in 4' x 8' sheets.

    They are frequently used with the opposite, plain white side showing as a slightly reflective floor covering when used with white seamless paper.

    One or two sheets are placed on top of the seamless paper.

    If you want something that looks as good as tile, but is super lightweight and which can be held up with tape and clamps, glue, or staples, consider anaglypta, which is a beautiful sort of linoleum-like wall and ceiling covering,available in dozens of lovely patterns. It can be used as-is, stained, or painted, to look like fine tiles, metallic plates, masonry,concrete, adobe, you name it!
