5 Tile Projects to Prepare for the Holidays

5 Tile Projects to Prepare for the Holidays

We know, it's just starting to cool into the fall season...but for home projects that means it's time to prepare for the holidays! Adding our handmade holiday tile is a fantastic way to wow your guests for all of your get-togethers. From kitchen backsplashes where you prepare food to floor tile welcoming friends into your home - you won't regret starting these holiday tile projects now!

Here are 5 tile projects to prepare for the holidays: 

1. Beautiful Kitchen Backsplash

Cooler weather means more time cooking! Enjoy every moment by adding a beautiful backsplash to your kitchen. There are endless creative ideas with our holiday tile and since it's ceramic, it's super easy to keep clean. Add a decorative wreath and garland for a finishing touch like our friend Leslie Biggley.

2. Cozy Tiled Fireplace

Tile your fireplace for a stunning seated area where your guests can cozy up with a drink. Using our ceramic tile gives a sleek and sophisticated focal point for your living room. Go classic with our Subway Tile or add an elegant Herringbone Pattern for a unique and minimal handcrafted look.

3. Floor Entry with Craftsman Style

It's all about first impressions when you have a gorgeous tiled floor in the entrance of your home. Nothing says "welcome" more than walking into (and onto) something so beautiful.  We love this craftsman inspired floor in a patina for a rustic and handmade look.

4. 1/2 Bathroom Tile

When you have a full bathroom it's easy to neglect the 1/2 bathroom or the basement bathroom. Once you have a full house, that bathroom will be in use again! Give a small space an easy facelift by adding light and neutral tiles. Use the holidays as an opportunity to do those updates that make your home "guest ready."

5. Stunning Kitchen Island

Add a tile accent to your home to make a bold impact! We love this green kitchen island, it shows how a small amount of tile can completely transform one room. Side note: any copper decor is the perfect way to style your home moving into the holidays. We adore these Spenser Stools from Anthropologie in contrast to our deep green subway tile.
