Book Description

With Stone and Designing a Home with Wood, Heather and Earl G. Adams brought us inspirational style guides to using two of the fundamental materials in home design. Now this creative team has turned their attention to tile in all its beauty and utility. Once merely ceramic, today's tile encompasses glass, stone, and cork, among other materials, and Tile Style celebrates tile old and new with 250 color photographs of gorgeous completed rooms as well as step-by-step installation demonstrations.

This comprehensive guide shows how tile can be used in myriad applications-from floors to ceilings and bathrooms to kitchens-as well as in multidimensional tile designs and mosaics. Tile Style is also filled with practical information on choosing, purchasing, installing, and caring for tile. The book is divided into four sections, covering natural and man-made tile materials, decorative uses for tiles and mosaics with instructions for special artistic projects, and a complete guide to installing tile. Projects include laying a stone tile floor and installing a granite tile countertop with a glass and metal backsplash. An extensive appendix section provides home decorators with all they need to know about budgeting a job, hiring an installer or doing it themselves, and maintaining surface tiles.
