Daltile recently introduced seven new innovative collections, and they have extended three of the natural stone lines. The new lines feature a variety of sizes, colors, and textures, which are inspired from the latest design trends and they are perfect for both residential and commercial spaces.
Two of the new additions with wood looks are Yorkwood Manor and Saddle Brook. Artigiano offers a natural, handmade aesthetic, and River Marble captures the look of intricate veining and the organic color palette of natural marble. Elevare uses rectangular shapes for the pattern, and Skybridge offers the look of brushed cement. The last new addition, which is Crystal Shores, provides a fresh twist on mosaics.

A mudroom may be a small room in a house but it is a perfect place to have fun with decorating. Even small rooms can help add some flair to your home. The first thing you need to get for your mudroom is the right flooring. Ceramic tile and resilient vinyl flooring are great options for mudrooms because they are moisture-tolerant flooring options. Make sure to choose a forgiving color because this is the most active room in the home, and you will be dealing with mud being brought into the house on rainy days. Make sure that the flooring has texture too so you will avoid slips and falls. Having a rug that is easy to clean and stain-resistant is also another great idea for a mudroom.
After you pick the flooring, then you can have fun decorating the rest of the room. Try to pick a paint color that will hide hand prints if your kids decide to put mud on the walls or if your pet shakes muddy water everywhere. If you don’t want a darker color then try to pick a paint that is easy to clean. Find some unique accessories to put in the room to hold umbrellas, coats, and even dirty shoes.
Recently, Daltile tile products were featured in an Arlington, Texas home that was displayed in the Greater Fort Worth Builders Association 22nd Kaleidoscope of Homes luxury home show. The home was designed by AMA Interiors, Inc., and it used tile as a statement piece in almost every room. The kitchen used Daltile Cepac Lantern mosaic tile as a back-splash. The master bath uses unique patterning of Daltile’s Chenille White vein-cut limestone planks on the floor and large rectangle shapes arranged vertically in the shower. Accents of coordinating hexagon mosaics and chair rail help break up the shower wall and add aesthetic interest. Daltile City Lights mosaic was selected for the wine grotto, and the house always uses tile to highlight small areas in the home.
The home was one of six chosen for the tour based on its demonstration of new and innovative architectural design features, interior decorating, consumer electronics, appliances, building products, technology, and multimedia offerings. Click here to see our collection of Daltile products.

The design challenge, which was called Operation Renovation, was to transform an old space that really needs to be renovated. In today’s marketplace, renovations and remodels are common, and a remodel is a great chance for interior designers to shine. This challenge also provides a real world design experience for the interior design students. The design entries were judged on the space’s function, aesthetic, and creative use of Daltile’s newest product offerings, which brought the students’ visions to life.
Daltile opened a new design studio in downtown Philadelphia, which is a first for the northeast from Daltile. This studio will serve as a great resource for designers and customers.
The design studio is 4,000 square feet and four stories high. It is surrounded by other architectural and design firms. The design studio is meant to help inspire customers and designers. The digital tools allows customers to bring their designs to life. An LCD touch screen enables the customers to flip through a digital catalog and look at inspiring gallery images. They can also build virtual designs with the products. Also, wall panels show the products in use so people can get more ideas from seeing them used in different spaces.
