Thanks to its durability, versatility, and natural beauty, tile has become more popular than ever. Used in many areas throughout the home, the sheer number of design options now available makes tile a great way to customize your house and achieve that dream look.

The Uniqueness of Tile

Tile is a great way to add a distinctive look to the kitchen, bathroom, or other spaces with elevated moisture. White tile is currently extremely popular, but there are many options available, including natural wood-look tiles, geometric tiles, and bright pops of color. This is a great way to showcase your personality through your home design. Whether you prefer simple subway tile or the elegant look of a glass mosaic, there is a tile option to match every home.


Backsplashes are one of the first things people think of when they think of tile — and it’s one of the first things we discuss when building our stunning kitchens. We dig into the details, including grout color (or even grout-less tiles), to help your space stand out. A tile backsplash can completely alter the look of the kitchen and help transform it into a true cook’s paradise.

Durable Moisture Protection

Moisture is the number-one enemy of wood and many of the other building materials used to construct your home. Tile is naturally moisture resistant, making it a great option for protecting your home from water and extreme temperatures. Using tile in the kitchen and bathroom — including for your flooring — will help you avoid mold, mildew, and other moisture-related problems later on.
