Levi Strauss was a genius not only in creating a utilitarian piece of clothing that has lasted, in “fashion-time”, about a billion years, but also started a trend to transcend all trends.  Still, it’s conception was due to its usability and versatility.  A reason builders, designers, and diyers appreciate tile, a material quite simple in its make-up, yet so transforming in its affect.

You can discover a vast array of styles and types of tile on-line (and on DiggersList) that will certainly inspire and intrigue the inner designer in  you.  A variety of uses in and around the house, include:

  • Decorating your outside garden
  • Creating a unique pathway leading to the front door
  • Sprucing up wall décor with cracked pieces of blended shapes, designs and colors
  • Install an alternative flooring inside your home- use decorative tile instead of wood or carpet
  • Embellishing your ceiling with tile pieces that accentuate the room décor
  • Lining the outside patio with a tile trim

Home improvement enthusiasts may also want to create their own tile, using plain resources and putting various techniques to task in making their own artwork. Check out bigceramicstore.com for supplies and tips on how to get you started.
