The tiles shown above feature a similar design with different effects. The Nottingham design is a glazed ceramic tile created with a slight relief and minimal application of color, which implies dimension. The Abyssinian harlequin deco is truly a 3D tile with a rustic- yet modern appeal. This simple single color application has both depth and character adding an elegant flair to any space.

As shown in the picture above, textured tiles can transform a room aesthetic with the stroke of a shape. The floating flowers are reminiscent to a spring meadow: emanating light and airiness with a delightful, whimsical feeling through out the space. A glamorous, sophisticated, and urban feel can be acquired with the subtle 3D textured wall-hung tiled vanity shown below.

Innovation and drama adds to the ambiance of any room especially through the use of textured 3D tiles.

"Sealing grout really depends on the type of grout. Some grouts don’t call for sealants. To apply sealer, follow the manufacturers’ recommendations. It’s easy to do yourself or your tile installer can apply for you. Most tile installers will not apply sealer without request by the client. "
