Colorful Tile in Real Homes

Colorful Tile in Real Homes

Many people are afraid to experiment with colorful tile, since you have to live with it a lot longer than a paint job. But ceramic or glass tile generally appears deeper, richer, and more saturated than a painted surface. If you're embarking on a renovation, consider using a colored tile that you really love. Most likely, it will be the stand-out element in your kitchen or bathroom.
