Backsplash & Wall Tile

Tile’s longstanding tradition of bold beauty isn’t limited to your floors! If properly installed, tile can also be a beautiful alternative to paint or wallpaper. Installing a tile backsplash can instantly alter the look of your kitchen and bathroom, while protecting your walls from everyday splashes. A bold accent wall can also make your space truly pop.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile is made to endure, making it a reliable option for the bathroom or kitchen. Crafted from natural clay, this tile is then fired and glazed, so it will inherently resist chips and scratches. This also makes it lovely flooring for high-traffic areas, or households with pets.

Porcelain Tile

A denser variety of ceramic tile, porcelain tile is made in a similar fashion, but is fired at higher temperatures. It’s extremely water resistant, making it very popular for laundry rooms, as well as outdoor gathering spots. That’s why porcelain tile is often found poolside, or on the patio.

Stone Tile

Stone tile is truly tile as nature intended. Whether you prefer marble, granite, or slate, stone is organically designed to stand the test of time. It is popular for paved pathways and landscaped areas, but you’ll also find it around hearths and in entryways.
