Design Trends: White Tiles After Labor Day

Design Trends: White Tiles After Labor Day

It is already that time of year again...Summer is quickly coming to an end and the (perhaps dated) notion of putting our whites until spring inevitably comes up. Luckily, you do not have to worry about that with tile; whites are here to stay.  Always a classic choice, white tiles just work. Whether it be in a clean offset, a playful pattern or a geometric shape, you've got a good thing going.  We'll show you a few of our favorite ways to use whites below; from the brightest whites to warmer hues. 

We have a bevy of whites to choose from in both our Recycled Clay and our White Clay Body. From bright, glossy whites to crackly, warmer tones--we have a full range to choose from. 

Looking for a bright white? Try our White Gloss or White Wash. If you'd like a matte finish, Daisy or Calcite will do the trick. For a bit of crackle texture, try our Frost

Tile Shown: Frost is a great option if you want a bright white with a crackly, engobe finish

Are you interested in a bit of warmth to your white? Our Tusk is one of our favorites to recommend. For a bit of crackle, we like to suggest Ultra Cream, Clear Glaze and Shell

Tile Shown: Ultra Cream is one of our warmer whites that offers beautiful variation with its crackly finish. 

There is just something so nice about a white brick. We have three beautiful shades: White Mountains, Lewis Range and Olympic (Ps. they actually look amazing installed together too)!
