8 Areas To Use Ceramic Tile in Your Home

Ceramic tile is a versatile material that can be used in countless ways throughout your home. Whether using tile for utilitarian purposes in a shower or entryway, or for decorative reasons, like on a bar wall or backsplash, our handmade ceramic tile is the perfect fit for your next project. Take a look at some of the many ways you can use our beautiful one-of-a-kind ceramic tile in your home décor.

1. Bar Area

The bar area can be the perfect place to add a small piece of luxury to your home. These herringbone 1x2’s are the appropriate size for this smaller space and compliment the warmth of the wooden bar top and open shelving. Who wouldn't love to come home after a long day to this beautiful home bar?

2. Kitchen Backsplash

The kitchen is a more common space to have tile because it is the heart of the home. As opposed to the space above, this kitchen embraces a larger sized herringbone in one of our dreamiest glaze colors - 22E Blue Opal. You can see how important scale is when choosing the correct tile size, and who doesn’t love this high variation color?!

6. Kitchen Island

An often overlooked spot to add a pop of color is on your kitchen island. Subtle, yet impactful, these dark green 3x8’s are a beautiful compliment to the warm earth tones of the chairs, and welcomed contrast to the bright whites of the rest of the kitchen.

7. Fireplace

Fireplaces are meant to be the center of attention. So, why not give them the attention they deserve? This highlight is now the centerpiece of not only the room, but the entire house as you can see it from the front door. Designer, Emily Meszkat, created a big visual impact by having just 28 square feet of pink and purple Moroccan Fish Scales at the head of this "glamily room".

    Thanks for explaining where it could be good to use ceramic tile. I hadn’t considered that this could be a good material to have for an entryway because it’s durable. It also seems like a good area to put if you want to have a place to put shoes and whatnot. http://blackwellscarpet.com/ceramictile.html
