Wall Tile and Backsplash Tile

Instead of choosing boring paint or outdated wallpaper, go with something that is easy to install and just as easy to care for, like wall and backsplash tile. Wall tile, or backsplash tile, can transform your space. Compared to other home décor items you can place on your walls, backsplash tile is not only easier to clean, but is not sensitive to moisture or humidity. With wall tile all you have to do is simply wipe it down for it to be clean, and if you choose unique tiles to create a design it’ll never leave your walls feeling bare.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile is the traditional option when it comes to flooring in kitchens and bathrooms. It is light-weight and available in a variety of styles. When covered with the right glaze, ceramic can be incredibly resistant to scratching, making it a great choice if you have pets in your home or if you want to install tile in an entryway. Ceramic tile is a green choice because it is made with natural materials. Ceramic tile is flexible in where it can be installed, so you can have it on your floors and walls! We just advise using different styles to break up the design.

Porcelain Tile

Porcelain and ceramic are made with the same materials. Porcelain is baked at a higher temperature making it more resistant to heat and moisture, which means you can install it in places like your laundry room and even outside as a patio without worrying about moisture being absorbed and causing cracks. Tile floors are notorious for being low maintenance, and if you do not have time to get to a mess right away choose a dark color which will hide problem areas between cleanings.

Stone Tile

Natural stone is available in a variety of beautiful colors and textures. Stone tiles are quarried in different locations meaning no two tiles look alike.
