Tile Temptations - Or How I Learned to Fall in Love with Tile

Once upon a time, I wasn't really that much a fan of tile.  I pictured it as hard and cold under foot, or as kind of boring squares without that much visual interest in a counter or tub surround.  And a high maintenance hassle with grout to clean, and cracks to deal with. 

But - that was once upon a time....

And that was before I saw some examples of how tile can be absolute artwork.  That was before I fell in love with tile.

Here are some examples of the tile work that turned me into a tile lover. 

 

Tile backsplash

 

Some are from renovation projects done for investor clients of mine. 

 

Tile bathroom floor

 

Some are my very own bathrooms where tile turned dated and kind of drab into beauty that makes me smile every single day.

Oh yes, now tile has tempted me - and I have fallen in love!  (Of course, knowing some amazing contractors does help)
