Using Tile to Accentuate Interiors

There’s some really cool tile on the market that our clients and interior designers have been using to bring richness and texture to our interiors. These tiles reflect unique and historic patterns, sometimes resembling a Moroccan carpet or Victorian ballroom. The more modern ones may exhibit tessellation (an arrangement of shapes closely fitted together ), a circuit board pattern or bold colors and geometries. Some even mimic a three dimensional effect.
