Inlays have been used for thousands of years to create beauty and visual appeal. Custom stone inlays and mosaics can be used to add personality to any space in your home. Stone inlays create visual texture and contrast in areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, and fireplaces.
Stone inlays add visual texture to tiled floors, increasing the open feel of any area by creating a line that draws the eye to the edges of the space. Smaller stones are often used to break up the grid lines of larger tiles, while custom stone inlay stair treads enhance the look of a central staircase, turning this feature into an appealing work of art.
Built-in niches create the perfect place to display artwork or other items as a focal point in your home. These architectural features draw the eye and can be used to set the tone and décor scheme of any room. Placing stone tiles at the back of a niche adds texture and forms a perfect backdrop for displaying any item you wish.
Stone inlay backsplashes add an artistic element to your kitchen. Inlays are durable and easy to install, making them perfect for this type of application. Choose an inlay that includes the colors or materials found in your flooring or stone countertops to create the perfect visual complement to these elements.
Stone inlays can also be used to add beauty to large, open showers and create a focal point for your bathroom. Many stone inlays offer no-slip features to make bathing areas safer in addition to enhancing the beauty of your floors.

Tile flooring is not only a popular and beautiful option for your San Jose home, it is durable and easy to clean as well. When choosing the right tile flooring for your home, there are many types of tile to consider, each with pros and cons. Keep reading to discover a few of the factors that will help you make the right choice for your next home tiling project.
The tile size you choose can have a dramatic impact on the look of your home. Oversized tiles are ideal for bigger rooms because they help to maintain the feeling of a wide open space. Using tiles that are too small in a large area can make the space visually unappealing and cause the room to feel more cramped. Larger tiles are often used in kitchens and entryways, while smaller tiles work better in areas such as bathrooms and utility rooms. You can vary the size of the tiles in any space to create artistic accents or borders. Tile mosaics are extremely popular for areas such as bathrooms and entryways because they turn your floor into an appealing work of art.
There are a variety of materials available when buying tile, including natural stone, porcelain, glass, and metal. Porcelain tiles are extremely resistant to moisture and spills, so these tiles often work best in kitchens, bathrooms, and outdoor areas such as garages or patios. Stone tiles bring the beauty of nature inside with varying colors and patterns. Vinyl tiles can be manufactured to look like stone or even wood to get the look you want in areas of your home that require durable flooring. Metal and glass tiles are often used in flooring applications to create decorative accents such as borders, inlays, and mosaics.
