There are tons of uses for ceramic tile in the home. In this room, the white tile has a slight grain, with the grains stretching to add width to the room. This slight effect also works well with strong wood colors, and it adds a nice reflection from nearby windows. Aside from cosmetic uses, tile is also comfortable to stand on while barefoot. Ceramic tile naturally retains heat, and when you have the sun shining through your door, it’s nice to get out of bed and feel that warmth on your feet.
