One of the most common questions we get is ‘what is field tile?’ Field tiles refer to any designs intended to cover large surfaces on your walls or floors, rather than a trim or border tile, or an accent tile! That makes them one of the most diverse groups of materials you can find, whether you’re looking to design a marble tile floor, or design your kitchen with ceramic wall tile. It has a lot in common with large format tile - fewer grout lines create a seamless look and require less cleaning, care, and maintenance! Choosing the right field tile is an essential part of an impactful design, since they cover large areas in your home and can add a strong visual presence through color, finish, or tile material.
There’s no need to confine field tile to the indoors! Many of our field tiles are rated for outdoor use, making them a great option to replace your wood decking with a rustic porcelain field tile that mimics wood grain without the need to stain every few years. They require less maintenance than many outdoor flooring or wall covering options, with a scratch and fade resistant surface that will create a beautiful outdoor living area, backyard patio, pool deck, or porch cladding!
Those gorgeous marble floors that you see in traditional homes, classic kitchens, and glamorous bathrooms are designed with marble field tile! You can install a stunning marble entryway floor with Bianco Carrara or black Nero Marquina that will welcome guests to your home with style! If you love the look of a seamless marble slab in your kitchen or bathroom, a field tile backsplash creates that gorgeous look!
Glass field tile is another popular option to create a colorful or dramatic wall covering! With the largest range of colors available, a glass field wall tile can easily cover a large space with a dazzling design! VIbrant colors, pearlescent finishes, or hand-poured swirls help give your shower wall or bathtub surround a fresh new look! You can also create a tiled fireplace surround with the luminous quality of glass to create a beautiful focal point in your living room design!
One of the most popular options to cover large areas in your home is porcelain field tile. These designs often come in large format tiles, making them cost effective to cover large tiled areas. They come in a variety of finishes, whether you want rustic wood look tile that can resist scratches or scuffs, a water-resistant tile that looks like natural stone or elegant marble, an industrial brick wall covering to give your home a historic or urban feel, or even a 3D tile to add texture and dimension! Porcelain field tiles are extremely long-wearing, and can be installed as a high-traffic flooring material, or a wall covering that adds beautiful color and detail to your interior or outdoor space!Read More...
