Ceramic Tiles

The Kitchen is the Where the Action Happens

Behind-the-sink tile design that makes one smile (even while doing the dishes).

Great kichen layout and choice of building materials, allowing each element of the kichen to stand out on its own.

A hard working stove deserves a fun tile pattern.

Bold, red-colored kitchen accessories work well with the Wasabi, Copper Patina, and Andromeda Cosmic Clouds.

The Vermont design uses a variety of sizes to add texture to the space, allowing the subtle details of the variations in the glazes to add character. The monochromatic running bone tile backdrop is a fitting complement to this Arts & Crafts kitchen, cabinets and ceramics collection.

Herringbone behind the sink breaks up the running bond pattern and adds some flair.

The Broadway border pattern, up close (and loving every minute of it).

Running bond field with the colorful, Broadway border.

A unique space where the stove has a side wall that needs to be protected from all the oils and sauces typical of the cooking experience.

Backsplash behind sink protects the wall from water damage and creates a stunning look. The homeowners used bullnose on the top to transition from the tile to the painted wall.

The homeowners wanted to mix up the accents so there was not a specific focal point.

Using three colors from our Mid-century historic tile series we represent. Yellow, Dark Green and LIght Green field tile.

Pot fillers have been around in Europe for a long time. Americans are getting into the act. Every home owner who has one swears by them. Just image how easy it is to fill up your teapot and water for boiling noodles. 


photo

You know you want a kitchen like this. Lots of storage and beautiful tiles to finish off your space.


photo

Our ceramic switch plates make a great finishing touch to any space. They choose Copper Patina.

Full shot of this fabulous tiled kitchen.

Hint: When using random decorative tiles it allows the home owner to have lots of cooking equipment on the counter and never not miss out on a little piece of art somewhere in the kitchen.

The original kitchen of this bungalow was typical of its era: very small, and traversed by traffic from three doorways. With only four feet of 30-inch high counter space this busy little kitchen was less than functional. The clients dreamed of a functional modern kitchen, yet wanted to stay within the original style of the period.


photo

Corners of kitchens are always challenging spaces to design. They are so big but you can only put objects like toaster ovens or knives in one direction. This kitchen has a nice open display of dishes and the mosaic trim allows for objects to be moved around and still see the patterns.

A stunning kitchen!


photo

Tiling around a window over a sink is a very common design challenge. Note how on the top of the window they used the tile to finish off the small strip creating a potentially bland space into a gem of a detail. 


photo

Simple pattens with graphic results are a trade mark of the Art Deco era. Choosing only two main colors and a few different sizes make the design pop.


photo

Before and After photos really tell the story of how transformative handmade tiles can be for a space. All the while keeping the identity of the period from when the home was built.

Lots of appliances? Trims are great design concepts to make sure you always enjoy all of the fun colors and patterns no matter what's on your counter.

Making a mosaic tile design at an angle takes a moment to contemplate how it will come together. Free form thinkers and planners both can do projects like this one featured. Ask Josh how you can make your tile mosaic come to life.

When you look close you will see we made the trim that wrapped around the glass block window. This allows that they will never have to worry about rotting wood and repainting. The window is also an excellent way to add light to your under cabinets.
