Tile: The durable solution to water, moisture, mud, sand and mess

Tile: The durable solution to water, moisture, mud, sand and mess

By Jana Horstman

Tile is used in flooring, custom showers, backsplashes and more. The possibilities of design are virtually endless.
Floors. As for the product itself, “tile” is a broad, general word commonly thought of as a traditional, somewhat timeless, flooring option that comes in various shapes and is most often grouted.
As the flooring industry continues to evolve, tile has done the same. Today, more people are using different sizes, with a 12” x 24” size on the rise for popularity. It is also not uncommon to mix and match sizes to create a completely different look.
When you look through a tile display, you’ll find ceramic tile, porcelain, slate, marble and more. Porcelain is extremely durable, frost proof and has a low absorption rate, which makes it a good option for outdoor use.
Backsplashes. These little projects can give your kitchen a “wow” effect! You can dramatically change the color, texture and feel of your kitchen. Some backsplashes are done with clean lines and very simple patterns, while others are more of an artwork. When incorporated with a custom vent, they can be stunning and dramatic.

Custom Showers. More people are incorporating custom showers into their new homes, but we also do a high volume of bath remodels and getting that tiled shower is usually on top of the wish list.
The beauty of the custom shower is exactly that – it is totally custom! Glass block, various tile sizes, borders, deco pieces, the placement of the opening, size of the shower, shelves, niches and more.
Tile options and designs are endless, which makes every project unique.
