What's New...

American Olean's Graffic Effects Series is a ceramic wall tile with visual imaging technology.

Visual imaging adds texture, contrast & brightness to the surface of the tile to achieve visual effects.

This series is available in six colors & a large 12"x24" size format. Perfect for all wall applications in both residential and commercial spaces. With the large format sizing you can create a bold design statement for walls. The soft sheen provides a slight shimmer to the tiles.

Some of our clients are often a bit hesitant when it comes to using a large format tile in a smaller room. In reality a small room can appear larger with the use of large format tiles. With a larger tile the grout joints are less frequent making the room feel more open & spacious.

Visit our showroom for samples of this new series as well as great tiling advice.
Professional installation available.

Tile Tip...

Can I use a ceramic tile outside?

* If you live in an area where frost occurs it is not recommended to install ceramic tiles outside. The reason is because the body of ceramic tile can absorb small amounts of water during the day, then at night when temperatures drop the water from inside the tile will expand, crack the tile and pop it off of the mortar bed. A porcelain tile is recommended for all exterior applications, it will not absorb water.

Is colored grout for you?

Dark Grout + Light Tile = A Design Element

When you pair a darker grout with a lighter tile your eye is forced to separate the tiles from the gout joints. You see individual tiles rather than a complete picture. This works well when you want to accent your tile pattern (ie. brick pattern) or you use a mosaic tile with a unique pattern. This small detail will give you a large impact.

A very popular trend we're seeing is a white tile paired with a dark grey grout. This is a very economical way of adding some visual interest to an otherwise classic look. There are a wide range of color options when it comes to grout so it's easy to get the look your wanting.
