Tile—it’s functional art for our homes. Today, tile is more versatile and beautiful than ever thanks to advancing manufacturing technology and global design influences. There are so many styles, colors, sizes, shapes, and patterns to choose from for our interior spaces. Tile’s visual appeal and performance capabilities really shine in kitchens and baths—on both floors and walls, making it a staple surfacing choice for homeowners and design professionals alike.

It’s #TileTuesday on #KBTribeChat Wednesday!

Tile consumption in the U.S. is on the rise. As market demand is growing, so are the creative options that tile makers are offering. That means it’s high time for our tribe to talk tile style and share insights on how you’re working with this beloved material in your projects.

Join us as we assemble with the very tile-minded Arpi Nalbandian (aka @tileometry) and Irene Williams (aka @tiletuesday and @crossvilleinc) to chat about trends and the ins and outs of tile use, selection, and installation. Best of all, we’re carving plenty of time for you to show and tell us about your favorite projects with tile—so be sure to have images ready to share!

Here’s a look at our discussion guide for the conversation:
• Why do you spec tile? Look—performance—sustainability—etc?
• What tile styles are tops w/ you & clients (color—size—look)?
• Spec’ing more tile lately? If yes, why? If no, what’s spec’ed instead?
• Name your top tile suppliers/makers. Why?
