Whether you’re using it as flooring, a backsplash or as a wall covering, tile is one the most versatile materials you can use in your home. It comes in all different shapes, sizes, and colors and allows you to create stunning floor designs that mimic a rug or embellish a wall with tiles that look like a piece of art. No matter what visual story you’re telling, there’s a tile you can use.
You can expect to find tile on walls and floors in the bathroom, kitchen and laundry room. What should be unexpected is the way you apply them: creatively! It’s one of the easiest materials to maintain and the fact that they come in more finishes, shapes and sizes than we can count makes them a designer’s dream. There are so many exciting things happening in the tile world right now that we needed some one-on-one time with Miguelina Veras of La Nova Tile. Here, she shares the inside scoop on all the latest tile trends.
One of my favorite parts of remodeling or revamping a space for a client (or myself!) is choosing the materials we will use for surfaces like countertops, flooring, backsplashes and more. When you find the right one, you just know, and it truly makes the biggest difference in the overall look and feel of a room. It can easily elevate a lackluster kitchen into a sleek, modern space for entertaining, and some of our most stunning bathroom renovations include a complete tile overhaul.
