I don’t know about you, but I love walking down the tile aisle at a home store, or into our showroom and seeing (okay, touching) all the cool tile that’s available. There’s so many applications – walls, floors, backsplashes, and outdoor to name a few!

Wood Look Tile
In high-moisture areas, wood look tile is a great option where other flooring material may not hold up as well. Take the look to the next level with a herringbone pattern. This tile also delivers on the biophilic design trends by incorporating textures from nature into the built environment.
This is where your inner designer comes out! Choose from encaustics, mosaics, subway or hexagons…there’s a ton of options to pick from. Using deco tile is an affordable way to create high impact on a kitchen backsplash, a shower floor or a focal point with a fireplace feature wall.
If you’re up for some fresh ideas – checkout how staggered transition tiles are being used. This is a funky way to create dimension and playfulness in your home. You can change up the color or mix different shapes and sizes for a more dramatic design.
As we’ve spent more time at home, backyards have transformed into our personal oasis. Knowing the right tile to select for your outdoor space is key. Understanding what elements will be exposed to it, and what application will help you select tiles size, what texture, and grout joint thickness.
