Tile of Spain is proud to participate in National Tile Day. Held February 23, the day recognizes tile as a timeless element of architecture and design. Around the world, tile plays a variety of roles, revealing its durability and flexibility over thousands of years. From the modest, white ceramic in a subway to the intricate mosaic columns at the Palau de la Musica Catalana in Barcelona, Spain, tile proves to be versatile and attractive.
Historically, only the wealthy could afford tile in their homes. The expense of handmade or small batch tiles made the cost difficult for the ordinary person to attain. With the advent of the industrial revolution, tile not only became more affordable but the designs and features expanded with the technology.
Beautiful tile finds its way into every room of the home, office and industry by providing an infinite number of styles through color, texture and dimension. The durability and energy efficiency of tile adds value and lowers maintenance costs.
