As homes and buildings become increasingly modern, designers will need to find materials that work both as an accent and as a feature on their own. The charcoal-colored ceramic tiles on the floor have texture, and their real purpose is to bring a dark tone to the room, allowing for lighter colors to be used for furniture and decor. Ceramic tile is also a durable material, which is ideal for rooms that are likely to see a lot of foot traffic. In conjunction with the dark tiles, light ceramic tiles are used on the walls, adding depth and character.
