There are so many great choices in tile these days from small mosaic patterns to bold, concrete style porcelain planks that building a new home with the durable, water-resistant option is only limited by imagination. On National Tile Day, here are some inspiring tile choices used in new Carbine homes in Nashville and Franklin.

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. 

Champagne bronze faucets are complemented by the Mojave Gray oversize tiles wrapping the shower and tub surround designed by J & K Design Studio.

The Mojave Gray is continued by J & K Design Studio as a wrap for the soaking tub in this beautiful home at 1716 Stewart in Nashville’s We-Ho neighborhood.
