Why Tile? Coverings ’19

This Saturday, February 23rd is NATIONAL TILE DAY!! We’re celebrating along side Coverings 2019 – The Global Tile and Stone Experience. This year, they asked us to be a Coverings Influencer, which we have coined “Coverings Enthusiast”! Meaning, we will be spending a whole week immersed in the latest and greatest in all things tile and stone. Stay tuned and follow along on our socials as we countdown to…..

 

 

What are the benefits of using tile? Eeeehhh….where do we begin?

Coverings ’19 is an event held annually for close to 30 years, with everything tile and stone you could possibly dream of. This event leads the tile industry with over 25,000 attendees, 90 countries represented, and 9 miles of tile and stone is displayed. Below read more about what tile can do for you and then register for the expo to further your knowledge!

It’s Eco-Friendly

Being made of organic, renewable resources like sand, clay, and glass, it’s easy to make tile and stone surfaces of recyclable materials. Unlike other surface materials, in case of a fire, tile does not release toxic substances when exposed. This is a great advantage when caring about the health of people in the environment. Instead, due to the use of natural minerals fired at temperatures over 2300 degrees F, ceramic tile will never fade and isn’t even affected by UV rays. Additionally, because of its exceptional thermal mass, tile reduces the amount of energy needed for heating and cooling. All this ensures a low environmental impact.

It’s Durable

If you think about it, tile has been around for ages – archaeologists still find remains that date back to the 9th century B.C.. Not only is tile pretty to look at, it’s also smart to use with it’s scratch-resistant and easy-to-clean properties. If you’re looking to have a eco-friendly house, choosing tile ensures the surface will last for a long time, thus preventing consumption rates unlike choosing materials that need to be replaced every so many years: like carpet, laminate, wood. A simple Clorox spritz will rejuvenate your finish and a spill won’t stain unlike on textiles. This equals low maintenance and elongates its new condition with little investment.

It’s Versatile

Quite possibly the most beautiful characteristic of tile is its versatility in how it can be used. We’ve seen it a lot on known places such as backsplash, countertops, and bathrooms. A big trend in 2019 is incorporating it in unique, impactful places like on step faces and accent walls. In addition to its location, you can lay it horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. This allows for a variance of interest it offers the eye and adds more personal preference. Depending on the tile you’re looking at, you can even pick a certain finish that adds a reflective, matte, or cracked surface.

We’re so excited to be paying more attention to tile this year, especially on February 23, #NationalTileDay !! And to do this, we’re attending The Coverings Show in Orlando April 9-12. Keep up with trends and the latest products in tiles and coverings with us and register for the expo for a once in a lifetime experience!

Styling&Profiling | Jessica Alba Edition

Throughout our travels this past weekend we stumbled upon Jessica Alba’s California home that was recently featured in a number of articles and online posts such as Domainehome.com and Huffington Post.

Now we all know of Ms. Alba’s fabulous acting and modeling career, but many are not aware of her other talents, number one on her list is being a mother to her two wonderful girls, Honor and Haven.  These girls have done more than simply bring joy to Jessica and husband Cash’s lives they have inspired a new booming company, top selling book, and ultimately the California home renovation. The multimillion dollar home was already in beautiful shape but Jessica and Cash wanted to make the family home more eco-friendly with a vintage touch.  Check out some of the photos below and see for yourself how beautiful this eclectic styled house truly is.

The unique/random pieces really help make this house feel more cozy and family-oriented, two feelings Jessica was striving to achieve with this renovation.
