Stellar projects celebrate National Tile Day

For the last three years, February 23rd has marked the day we celebrate tile. National Tile Day is the day we revere the timeless role tile has played in architecture and design.

In celebration of the industry holiday, we’ve dedicated the next few pages to showcase some of the beautiful tile projects tile installers have shared with us.

If you are looking for ways to celebrate National Tile Day, Coverings has a downloadable tool kit at https://www.coverings.com/national-tile-day/. Happy National Tile Day, and feel free to share your outstanding projects with us anytime at [email protected]
