    A big trend in tile right now is the use of linear tile. Linear tile gives a really nice effect especially when used for kitchen backsplashes and bathrooms, but the effect can be used virtually anywhere. The different varieties and finishes that are available allows you to create a unique, contemporary look for your home. In addition to their contemporary look, these tiles can be effectively used to visually elongate a space vertically or horizontally depending on what you would like to achieve.
