These long, rectangular, vertical wall tiles suggest the question before it’s even asked: “Up or down?” While these tiles have your eyes moving heavenward, the distressed square tiles underfoot are entirely grounding. Ceramic tile’s beautiful design options certainly give you lots to ponder, especially if you’re aware of its water-, stain-, scratch-, and slip-resistant options (we’re sure that the building owner is). In the time it takes for your lift to arrive, you’ve found your new favorite design feature.
