Bathrooms are one of the most used spaces in a home. Ceramic tiles have been a favorite for bathrooms for thousands of years, not only for their functional use and easy to clean properties, but also for the sense of style and character they offer. Water, serenity, color, pattern and other themes play a part in bathroom design. Below are some great examples of what homeowners have done with our tile. Contact us if you have questions; we will help you achieve your dream bathroom.
Art Deco style is typically full of rich and contrasting colors. This bathroom showcases historic colors (Kiwi and Black) and sizes from the Mid-Century series by B & W Tiles. Using a running bond pattern, instead of a stacked design, makes this space more dynamic. The framed shower niche is a great addition to any bathroom space.

Besides being the heart of the home, the fireplace is considered one of the home’s major interior architectural features and can set both the mood and the style of the room. Whether starting from scratch or modifying an existing fireplace, taking the time to learn about fireplaces, both past and present, will give you the guidance to determine what style will best fit your home and you.
We worked with a home's original accents and design elements in this fireplace restoration. The family loved their stainglass windows and wanted to emulate the glass's prairie flowers with our custom tile. Josh worked with Spaces into Places, Lynne Stryker and Clay Borne Tile to create this Arts & Crafts fireplace splendor.
Colors chosen: Pesto 4x6"
Hearth - Jade Moss and trim
Prairie Flowers - Truffle, Gingersnaps and Jade Moss
Mid-Century Modern design has two standard design signatures: monochromatic and "multi-mix" (patterns or colors) usually in rich, bold colors. The homeowners used our Aquila pattern to create a dynamic, muiltimix design for their kitchen. With no focal point, it allows the cook, and dinner guests, lots of prolific visuals to enjoy. The homeowners knew they would have lots of accessories in daily use (coffee makers, toaster ovens, spices and cookbooks) and needed a look that allowed them to see the tiles from anywhere in the kitchen.
Choosing a decorative tile to feature in a kitchen sets the stage for how you envision one of your home's most used spaces. We recommend choosing colors, patterns and designs you have always loved to ensure you will never tire of the features you choose. Tiles behind the stove should not only be durable but also beautiful, adding character to any kitchen. This image shows 2" x 8" tiles in our Northshore glaze, with Coco Moon liners. The mural features a beautifully hand-painted Stone Hollow Tile surrounded by 3" x 3" field tiles.

Deep color creates a very soothing atmosphere. This Blueberry subway shower from our historic Mid-Century tile series, with accents of our handmade 2" tiles en pointe, showcase how rich a space can be. This small bathroom was well thought out, adding to the functional needs of the shower with the incorporation of a niche and safety grab bar. The floor is made up of 2" unglazed porcelain hex tiles with random accents of blue throughout the space. Small accents can turn the ordinary into extraordinary!
