7 Tile Trends to Watch in 2019

Visit Italy, and you’ll find yourself admiring cathedrals and cafés alike showcasing decorative tiled floors, or tiled walls beautiful enough to act as art installations. Here in the US, however, we tend to restrict our use of tile to our most hardworking rooms—kitchens and baths—where we rely on their utility.
