Talking Tile from #Coverings2015

Tile is a perpetually popular choice for covering floors, walls, and other surfaces such as countertops. From its timeless, artisanal appeal to its technical characteristics and performance, tile is a staple of quality and beauty, and data confirms that its consumption is on a steady increase throughout North America.
