The use of structural and decorative tile has been around a lot longer than you might think! Beautiful tile work has been discovered in architectural remains from the early 13th Century B.C. First made out of baked clay, the term ‘tile’ now refers to many colorful, cut materials including ceramic, stone, metal, clay and glass. Today, the use of tile is ubiquitous to kitchens and baths; its properties are perfect for protecting drywall from heat, water, and oil. 

Considering how long tile has been in use, choosing a tile for your home can seem a bit overwhelming. Adair Homes has curated a selection of quality materials to choose from—but the style is all up to you.
