1. Create Worry-Free Countertops
2. Let the Floors Do the Talking
3. Choose One-of-a-Kind Bathroom Furnishings
4. Design a Functional (and Beautiful) Backsplash

Porcelain tile is easy to clean, nonporous and naturally resistant to scratching, staining and heat – a beautiful, low-maintenance option for this grease – and moisture-prone area.
