Feb 22nd, 2023

by Tile Wholesalers of Rochester

February 23, 2023, marks National Tile Day – an annual celebration of the craftsmanship of tile and the beauty it brings to transform spaces everywhere. This year, we’re joining in on the festivities the best way we know how: by guiding you through some of our unrivaled and diverse collections.

Featured below are selections from each of our ceramic, porcelain, natural stone, glass, concrete, specialty, metal, and mosaic tiles. Although each product spotlight represents only one of many fabulous choices, we hope this guide will get you in the holiday spirit, inspire further exploration, and help you determine which of our tiles will be the perfect fit for your home.

Ceramic Tile

Anatolia Teramoda Collection - Emerald Glazed Ceramic

Ceramic tile is known for having versatile usage at a great value, making it one of our most popular materials. Molded from natural clay, ceramic tile comes in a variety of stunning finishes and colors, easily elevating your room design to the next level. 

The backsplash pictured here features the Emerald Glazed Tile from the Teramoda collection by Anatolia. Browse Anatolia’s other ceramic offerings including their light and bright Soho, modern Marlow, and exotic Marrakesh collections.

Porcelain Tile

Crossville Tile - Owen Stone in Sable

Famous for its higher density and damage resistance, think of porcelain tile as ceramic’s stronger and even more durable sister. Porcelain is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use and is great for flooring that will stay beautiful for years on end.
