It’s National Tile Day! Explore How Tile Can Inspire Your Home Design

Tile is one of the most creative materials you can use in your home design and today, National Tile Day, celebrates the world of tile in all its variations. The adaptability of tile starts with the many materials it is formed from: ceramic, glass, cement, porcelain, marble, mosaic, natural stone, limestone, travertine, or metal – each lends its own visual qualities to your home’s surroundings. And, tile can truly be used in any area of your home, from floor to ceiling, to add color, character, and dimension to your space. Here are a few examples of how tile can transform the interior design of your whole home remodel:

Craftsman Inspired
For a whole home remodel of this 1948 house perched on a hilltop in La Jolla, the clients wanted much more space to relax and entertain and a design that felt more connected to its stunning natural surroundings. Inspired by Craftsman design and the home’s amazing panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, a gorgeous island countertop and a shimmering backsplash in shades of blue are focal points in the new kitchen design.

Marble Luxury
Meticulous design and workmanship is evident in every element of this dazzling primary bathroom. The room is wrapped in multiple layers of luxurious marble. The tile “rug” on the floor required painstaking attention to detail, as did the custom fit borders around the room. Each element of the design was thoughtfully considered. Whether refreshing in the magnificent shower or taking time for a serene bath in the free-standing tub, the clients now luxuriate like royalty in their palatial primary bathroom, appreciating each exquisite detail.

Spanish Coastal
For this whole home remodel in Point Loma in a highly desirable location with water access, a fresh interpretation of coastal decor balances with graceful arches and intricate tile influenced by Spanish design. Ideal for relaxing and enjoying the scenery, or for hosting large gatherings, this beautiful home feels as if it has always belonged in its breathtaking setting. In a lower level hallway now filled with natural light, intricate tile underlines the home’s overall point of view.
