The journey through the design alphabet continues with the letter ‘T’. My Facebook and Twitter friends suggested; Tables, Travertine and Tile. The subject is so large, this post will just ‘touch on it.
Let’s talk TILE.
Choices of tile materials and types are vast. Different rooms and functionality requirements, not to mention personal aesthetic and maintenance preferences should guide the decision-making process as to what type of tile is chosen. For a great overview of tile materials and types , read 3 Types of Tile Types and Tile Your World.
Tile can be used as a strictly decorative design element. Mosaic tile artwork and accessories can be used to add texture and color to kitchens, bathrooms, and display areas. Glass mosaic tiles are beautiful and often add just the right WOW factor to a kitchen or bathroom back splash. The glass tiles are very easy to take care of in both kitchens and bathroom settings.
A few great sites to explore are Susan Jablon Mosaics and Oceanside Glasstile an environmentally friendly glass tile company.
