To add interest to a built-in hutch, Joanna Gaines of Magnolia, restored the wood and added in our Enchante Moderno porcelain tile for a distinctive and unexpected touch.

Emily Henderson's Mountain House Kitchen reveal shows off her creativity and eye for design. The kitchen dry bar features our Avondale 2”x8” in Early Gray (a thin brick tile) on the backsplash and our Magnifica® Porcelain slab on the countertop in color Basalto.

In The Bedroom

Dimensional tile, like our Triangolo ceramic tile, looks amazing on the wall and can complement a quilted headboard.

Another way to add interest to your bedroom is to tile the wall in the same material as the floor, and maybe create a niche tiled in a coordinating accent.

On The Stairs

Add some durability and style to your staircase by tiling it or adding it to the rise for a decorative element. Below, our homeowner chose our wood-look porcelain from our Titus Collection in the Camel color. Its 8"x48" plank size fits perfectly as a tread.
