Backsplash & Wall Tile
Tile makes for a stalwart foundation, but it serves other beautiful purposes as well. A fun and functional alternative to paint or wallpaper, tile makes a perfect wall or backsplash. With its wonderful water-resisting abilities, your backsplash will protect your walls from kitchen or bath splashes, as well as grease splatters, soap suds, and other everyday assailants.
Ceramic tile is made from natural clays and minerals. Once fired, this tile is extremely durable and moisture-resistance, both of which made it a favorite medium for moms- as well as those with multiple pets.Learn More About Ceramic
Simply put: porcelain tile is a much denser variety of ceramic tile. This is because porcelain is finished over higher heat. Considered waterproof, porcelain is popular in bathrooms and laundry rooms, as well around the spa or pool.Shop Porcelain
Stone tile is made from natural minerals, harvested from the earth. Left in their given state, organic marble, granite, and slate boast unique patterns and can last for generations. Stone tile is a great choice for your counters, and is also a favorite addition to any outdoor gathering spot.Learn More About Stone
