Wall Tile

Tile is an excellent addition to your home for shower walls, backsplashes, or as an accent wall instead of paint or wallpaper. Wall tile adds warmth, depth, character, and dimension to your home and protects the substrate from intrusion. Wall tile is available in porcelain, ceramic, glass, stone, and metal, and you can choose from almost any material, size, shape, or texture. So, the right wall tile is best suited for your lifestyle and aesthetic.

Historically, ceramic tile and porcelain have been the most popular wall tiles. They are durable against water, stain, and heat and are scratch-resistant. Ceramic and porcelain tiles can withstand the needs of the kitchen backsplash, bathroom backsplash, or shower. They are both suitable for bathroom walls because they are water-resistant, long-lasting, and easy to maintain. The advancements in screening technology have even allowed these materials to replicate natural stone at a fraction of the cost.

Luxurious natural stone is the best choice for return on investment as stone offers the largest increase in resale value, but it is also substantially more expensive than tile. Stone requires protective sealants and specialized cleansers formulated for natural stone. However, with a little extra effort, your stone can last a lifetime. Natural stone is available in a wide variety of colors; no two stone tiles will ever look alike, and that variation is an inherent characteristic of the material.

Other frequently seen wall tiles are glass and metal. With colors, shapes, and styles that foster creativity, glass and metal have been a popular design choice that can give any space a unique style of its own. Available in a mesmerizing range of colors from jewel greens to sparkling silver, there is a choice for every homeowner. While glass is suitable in practically any wall tile installation due to its durability, metal tiles are typically used on backsplashes only.
