Tile manufacturing technologies have come a long way since the first tiles, but there’s still something especially charming about hand-painted tile. Hand-painted tile may serve as art itself, or it can be used to add style to any tile application. Unique colors and incredibly creative patterns are possible with hand-painted tile, allowing designers and homeowners to create one-of-a-kind spaces.

Ceramic tile is resistant to water, scratches, stains, and fading. Whether you’re using your tile for a backsplash, flooring, shower, or anything else, the hand-painted tile design will continue looking brand new for decades.
