February 24 at #KBtribechat – Why Tile

Sponsored and Hosted by Coverings

Following National Tile Day on February 23, Coverings is excited to host a KBtribechat session on February 24 to continue the discussion about the benefits and use of ceramic tile for specific applications. Ceramic tile is one of the most versatile surface materials and innovative design options, with many available shapes, sizes, patterns, colors, and finishes. Not only is tile beautiful, but it is also one of the healthiest and most hygienic choices available, being naturally resistant to bacteria, dust and other harmful pollutants. It is low-maintenance and easy to clean, with superior performance in kitchens, baths and any specified location. Unlike many other surface options, ceramic tile offers sustainability benefits including being energy efficient and recyclable. Slip- and fire-resistant, tile provides uncompromising safety without sacrificing style.

Coverings is the preeminent event for the ceramic tile and natural stone industry in North America. Only at Coverings can kitchen and bath professionals, architects, designers, installers, retailers, distributors, fabricators, contractors, and many others from across the world experience the full benefits of tile, trending products, beautiful vignettes, and robust educational programs at no cost.

Coverings 2021 will take place July 7-9, 2021, in the North Hall of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Learn more and register at coverings.com.

Tile—whether porcelain, stone, glass, metal, large format or intricate mosaic—causes primal stirring among members of the kitchen and bath tribe. The natural materials, authentic details, colors, patterns, textures and endless design possibilities speak to those of us who take part in the creation of beautiful kitchens and baths.

Next week, the tribe will come together in celebration of tile at the Coverings Expo. Some of us will gather in person on the show floor in Atlanta, others will convene online, and all of us will glory in discussion of the latest styles and trends. For such an ancient art form, tile has truly timeless appeal.
