Ceramic tile can be included in almost every room of your home. This attractive material comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors and is often used for flooring, countertops, backsplashes and walls. Accent these tiles with a custom look by adding hand painted tiles to your wall or backsplash. These tiles are available through local artists or home decorating centers. Another way to get a custom look for your tiled area is to combine two or more colors of tile. Grout is available in many colors and can be used to accent your tile. Selecting complimenting or contrasting colors can help you achieve a unique look. You may decide to use small ceramic tiles in several colors to create a design or picture called a mosaic. This type of decor has been used for thousands of years. However, customizing with a mosaic can be expensive. Here's a good idea...ceramic tile is water and stain resistant, so it makes good outdoor flooring material. You may want to create a cheerful patio with it.
