Beyond the Backsplash: Innovative Uses For Tile and MosaicsAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Gone are the days of underwhelming, ho-hum bathroom floors, kitchen backsplashes, and countertops. Over the last decade, tile has evolved into a new type of fashion trend, and All Natural Stone is on the forefront of transforming this porcelain material into a stylish outfit for your floors, walls, countertops, and pools.
Offering finishes like raked, rusted, and patterned, the textured porcelain field industry is providing an alternative solution to passé wallpaper and paint. No need to get your hands messy when priming an accent wall; opt for an ornate glass mosaic mural set in sparkling grout. Wouldn’t you love to own a rug that will last a lifetime and never needs to be schlepped to the dry cleaners? With the expertise of All Natural Stone, new cutting edge technology allows homeowners to choose a custom rug pattern and have it printed on your choice of stone field tile.
Take a look at these fabulous options. Guests will soon be gushing over your new designs, and you’ll feel like a winner in a “who wore it best” competition.
