If your kitchen is feeling lackluster or out of date, a backsplash makeover can turn it into a stylish and functional space you’ll genuinely enjoy spending time in. And here’s the best part: It’s a DIY project made easy with our vast array of tile options.

When choosing tiles for your backsplash, consider the aesthetic and practical aspects. Some tiles, such as natural stone, can be more expensive and require more maintenance, but they can also add a luxe feeling to your kitchen. Others, such as ceramic or porcelain tiles, are more affordable and easier to care for.

No matter your budget or style, there are plenty of ways to create a backsplash that you’ll love for years to come.

Don’t wait for a plumbing emergency to give your bathroom floor a makeover. Cooler weather is the ideal time to redo your bathroom tiles, making it a more comfortable and enjoyable DIY experience.

Opt for water-resistant tiles, such as ceramic or porcelain, to ensure long-lasting durability and easy maintenance. These tiles are not only practical but also offer a wide variety of styles and designs, allowing you to create a bathroom that matches your unique taste and personality.

There’s no better way to stay warm and cozy than sitting beside the fireplace. Whether you have a wood-burning fireplace or a gas insert, adding tile around the fireplace can create a stunning focal point in your living room.

Choose tiles that complement the overall design of your space and that you’ll love year-round. For a traditional look, consider using porcelain tiles that mimic the appearance of natural stone. Porcelain tiles are durable, heat-resistant, and easy to maintain.

If you have a small fireplace, choose smaller tiles to create a more balanced look.

If your mudroom or entryway lacks style and functionality, a tile refresh can make a world of difference. Prepare your home for the winter season by giving your mudroom or entryway a much-needed upgrade.

Durable and easy-to-clean tiles, such as unglazed or glazed ceramic tiles, can handle the daily wear and tear (wet shoes, muddy boots, etc.) these high-traffic areas often experience. 

Tile-Inspired Home Decor

Extend your tile project beyond the floors and walls. Create tile-inspired home decor items like unique tile coasters, plant pot holders, or a tile-accented mirror frame.

These small but impactful projects are a great way to add personal touches and tie your tile theme throughout your home.

If you’re contemplating a tiling project, there’s no time like the present to kick-start your planning. Embrace the cooler weather and use it to your advantage (open your windows and doors for proper ventilation while keeping dirt and mud at bay) by tackling some indoor tile DIY projects.
