History of Tile
The expense of handmade tile historically made the use of the home building product something only the wealthy could afford. Once tile was produced in large quantities it became more affordable during the Industrial Revolution. Today, the styles and choices have expanded as tile craftsmanship evolves.
Home owners are using tile from backsplashes and floors to bathrooms wrapping beautiful tubs and showers. The products are also very durable requiring little maintenance.
