The kitchen is a popular place to experiment with rustic designs, drawing from the rich history that most cultures have with kitchens being the hardest-working room in the home. While many types of ceramic tiles are smooth, they can also be produced with texture, reminiscent of wood, stone, or in this case, plaster. Despite this tile’s worn appearance, ceramic tile is durable and resistant to scratches. Ceramic tile also resists mold, mildew, and bacteria, all of which we want to keep out of the kitchen. Naturally healthy characteristics and unique style options make ceramic tile the ideal material for a kitchen backsplash.
