Texture is a key design element that helps define the unique character of a space. Think multi-sensory materials that highlight both visual and tactile attributes, such as depth and dimension, distressed finishes, layered looks, bold color palettes, brushed natural stones and more.
Today, the trend of Textural Movement has served to elevate design projects with more personality, whether your aesthetic leans toward warm and transitional, sophisticated and modern, or an eclectic mix for a unique perspective.
One of the most effective ways to bring texture to stark spaces is through tile and natural stone:

Sometimes the most dynamic design choice is incorporating the subtlest of color in the most impactful way. Ornami™ glazed ceramic mosaic creates a signature wall that calls to those who love a tactile moment.
Outdoor living environments thrive with Fregio™ tile, which blends historic looks of roughhewn stone with modern day durability inherent with tile. This is especially important when considering the best materials for fireplace facades.
Create a mood! When making choices for a backsplash inside or out, consider a concrete look that takes its inspiration from a love for modern industrial design. Cogent™, a versatile and timeless tile that brings design to life, for both residential and commercial, urban and suburban.
A primary bath often showcases elements of nature, with a warm palette and relaxing feel inherent in every design choice made. Reform™ glazed porcelain beautifully replicates the look of stone with the durability of tile. A perfect combination for any bathroom.
A modern approach to wainscoting is simply using tile top to bottom. Two distinct colors combined with a unique diamond texture deliver an even more intriguing installation, shown here with Ironworx™ glazed porcelain.
