My neighbor’s walkway keeps popping out at me. I walk the simple pathway, made of cement no less, but up ahead I see a focal point and as I get closer I realize that it is just a tile.
Just a tile?
Well yeah-it’s a cement tile with an Iris carved into it and carries it’s own beauty, in it’s own right. But everything else around it is just plain cement.
Which means it pops.
Whether incorporating tiles into your deck, walls, garden, walkways, backspashes, bathrooms or fireplaces, they offer a focal point, conversation starter, piece of beauty and unique decorating perspective, all rolled into one piece. They can:
- Highlight your landscape
- Become a focal point
- Convey a theme
- Tell a story
- Honor a memory or a person
- Invite a pause
The nice thing about tiles? You can have them custom designed just for you and your specific needs. I recommend Wilburton Pottery. Wilburton has specially designed their tiles to resist element damage, made from porcelain clay. They are in Bellevue, but you can also order online or at the shows they attend as vendors.
Go ahead, make your walkway or wall pop. You’ll be glad that you did.
