How to Use Wall Tile at Home

Tile has many patterns, styles, materials, price points, and commercial and residential applications.  Tile can be used indoors or outdoors, on the floor, on the countertop, and yes, on the wall.  There are various reasons to tile on the wall depending on your unique home.  Perhaps you want to coordinate with existing tile in the home, or you need enhanced durability or you just like the look.  Whatever your reasons, tile can be used in many different applications, as we explore below.

Using tile to create a backsplash to your countertop is a great way to draw the eye up, enhance the appearance and beauty of your countertops, and protect your wall at a height where it is common for damage to occur.  Whether you choose the same tile material and design as your countertops or opt for a different pattern or style to coordinate with your countertops, the backsplash is a great way to create visual interest, make a bathroom or kitchen design look more complete, or make a bold statement with a unique pattern.

Tile in the bathroom is a great option because it can stand up to daily use and moisture without becoming damaged.  You can install tile on the wall in the shower for moisture protection and aesthetic enhancement.  Additionally, it can be installed as a backsplash in the bathroom or on the wall around the tub.  No matter what room you are in, if you want to make the design look beautiful and complete, consider having wall tile professionally installed.
