Who doesn’t love tile? It’s beautiful, functional, and sustainable. It’s simple to clean and maintain. With proper installation, it will last..and look great..for years to come.

Today, tile is more versatile for even more uses—in kitchens, baths, and beyond. Advancements in manufacturing have resulted in more formats, shapes, thicknesses, and styles for design professionals and homeowners to work with and enjoy in truly unique, stunning applications.

Cursive by Crossville - commercial bathroom-

Each year, we typically gather with sponsor Crossville, Inc. to talk tile in conjunction with the annual Coverings Expo, North America’s largest show for the tile and stone industry. Though the expo is canceled this year, the talk of tile is not! We are excited to meet virtually with Crossville—and YOU!—to share inspiration and information on the many ways tile can enhance our spaces. There are so many new products, looks, and options to discuss.

For everyone who joins us, get your photos ready to share! We want to see your tile designs during this fun exchange for our industry. Here is the question guide; get ready to chime in during this special tile talk.

Our KBtribechat Questions:

Q1: Tile trends—what do you love?

Q2: Share your fave tile performance characteristics.

Q3: How are current events guiding your materials selection?

Q4: Tips for working w/ installers for fab installations; do tell!

Q5: Show & Tell: Post pics of your tile designs!

BONUS:
As good timing would have it, our chat tile chat is happening on Earth Day 2020. Crossville will take the opportunity to share some notable news when we gather, so you’ll definitely want to be part of the conversation.
