Decorating with Tile

Fresh Ideas for Your Home

Decorating with tile gives you an almost unlimited range of patterns, colors and materials.

The most difficult task may be to decide what kind of beautiful tile best suits your lifestyle and decor.

Tile is one of the oldest and most traditional of building materials, but it can also look totally modern,
depending on the type of tile you select, the surfaces you use it for, and the way it’s installed. You can even
add Southwestern, Asian or African accents with a carefully selected tile.

Tile is so versatile it can be used on almost any surface, including:

Table tops
Even ceilings!

And what a variety of tile materials is available, including mosaics, marble, porcelain, glass, natural stone,
ceramic, slate and terra cotta. There’s even porcelain tile that looks like wood for better stain resistance and
moisture proofing!

One of the challenges of selecting tile is that there are almost too many choices – and they’re all beautiful!
That’s why it’s helpful to work with an expert to pick the most fitting tile for your application. For example,
bathroom flooring and shower floors need to be slip resistant. And for your kitchen floor, counter top or
backsplash, you’ll want to select tile that’s stain-resistant and easy-to-clean.

Compared to many other hard surfaces, most tile is reasonably priced, long-lasting, durable and easy to
clean without periodic polishing or sealing. Tile is also flexible because it comes in so many shapes and sizes, from tiny one-inch squares to giant 12-inch by 24-inch rectangles.

Tile surfaces can add beauty, style and durability to your home. They are so versatile – and come in so
many choices – that you can create almost any look and mood.

Retiling a Brick Fireplace

An old brick fireplace can really date your home.

This fireplace is located in a pro-golf shop in Gig Harbor…it was time to retile this relic.



We selected 12 x 24’s porcelain tile for the face and 18 x 18 tile for the pad. Just a touch of mosaic was needed to emphasize the bump-out mantle.


Here is the new look.




This is just the first portion of this remodel

Laundry Room Idea

I love this idea. A tub just for washing the dog or any large items, like rubber boots, flower pots, etc.

A shower pan can be the base with tiled sides, or created an entire custom tiled enclosure.
