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.

Tile Brings the Tribe Together

Join Us for Talk of Tile Trends Direct from the Coverings 2013, Sponsored and Hosted by Crossville Tile


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.


Coverings is the premiere trade show for the tile industry. Each year, tens of thousands of professionals from around the world converge to experience the most current products, programs and innovations. With #KBTribeChat on site, members of the tribe will get a firsthand glimpse into the most current advancements in tile from across the globe.
