    Have you heard about Pinterest? This online “pinboard” is the largest growing social network right now. People are flocking to the site to create boards filled with all kinds of inspiration from home decor and recipes to event planning and fashion.

    This is a fantastic way to find and save inspiration for the tile projects in your home. When we start working with a client we always get a clear picture of their inspiration and hope for the space. Whether it is a magazine cut-out, a color scheme, pattern, etc., we use all of these pieces to design and achieve the desired tile effect. Now, Pinterest makes this process easy! After doing a simple search for “tile”, these are just some of the results. Users can share their boards as well as receive comments and likes from friends.

    A word of advice- Once you start searching and pinning on Pinterest it’s hard to stop!

  • Creative Idea Using Decorative Tile

    Date: 2011.09.21 | Category: Bathrooms, Custom Tile, Ideas and Inspiration, Tips and Advice | Response: 1

    Tile has so many wonderful uses in the home. Not only is it a functional, but it also gives an artistic touch to many applications. Decorative tile is most often seen surrounding around a fireplace or on a kitchen backsplash, but there are many other ways to use decorative tile throughout your home. The next thing you might be thinking is “that could get extremely pricey” and in some cases you would be correct. There are ways, however, to get the beautiful tile you desire and keep your budget in mind at the same time.

    Let’s take this example from Bill Buyok on  (Bill Buyok is the primary contributor for Avente Tile and has been publishing Tile Talk since 2008)

    This beautiful glass tile would make a stunning shower, but the price tag was high.

    Glass Tile $40 per square foot (photo courtesy of Click photo for original post.

    The option instead was given to create a “waterfall” design that appeared as if the glass tile was pouring onto the floor.

    The tile actually became a focal point and used $280 worth of the glass tile as opposed to the entire shower, which would have been roughly $3,600.

    The moral is: Don’t say no to a decorative piece of tile that appears to be out of your budget! A professional tile designer can assist you in implementing the tile you love at a price you can afford.
