Overview

Tiles offers a comprehensive introduction to the exciting world of ceramic tiles, whether you're planning to work with a tile contractor or designer or do it yourself, with dozens of innovative tile designs sure to spark your own creativity. Beginning with a survey of the vast array of tile products on the market today and an explanation of the difference between various glazes and manufacturing processes, Tiles provides invaluable guidance on selecting tiles for kitchens, bathrooms, floors, other rooms, and outdoor usage. Stunning color photographs of exceptional tile installations both here and abroad show that tiles can be equally effective used in small doses or in full-dress, floor-to-ceiling treatments. Also included is a unique design workbook that acquaints the reader with the rudiments of tile installation and care, and offers professional insights into designing beautiful and durable tile treatments. Reproducible design grids and suggestions for tile motifs and patterns show the infinite possibilities of this versatile medium. From picking the perfect tile to creating custom installations and keeping them in peak condition, Tiles is an inspiring window into the infinite possibilities of ceramic tiles.
