by Tile Wholesalers of Rochester

With the arrival of summer comes the season of travel – but you don't need to leave your home to experience your dream destination. Capture the feel of your favorite cultures and transform your interiors with tiles inspired by the globe's most coveted regions. 

From Spain to France, to Portugal, and more, discover how our tile can take you on your fantasy vacation without ever stepping foot out of your front door.

The Caribbean Islands

Artistic Tile – Arpell Azul WJ Mosaic

Travel to a coastal paradise in this deep-sea-inspired bathroom from Artistic Tile. This stone mosaic glistens with cool blues and off-whites, beautifully mimicking the sun's sparkling rays on rolling ocean tides.

Sonoma Tilemakers – Stellar Collection Caicos Tiles in Bora Bora

This scalloped selection from Sonoma Tilemakers reminds us of crystal-clear Caribbean waters. We're certain this vibrant and playful turquoise tile will bring you visions of a joyful beach vacation all year round.

France

Adex USA – Beveled Field Tile in Bone

Evoking a rustic French design, this kitchen features pastel hues and hints of ornate detailing to create an undeniably charming atmosphere. With this beveled subway tile from Adex USA, add a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers and a tray of French patisserie to transport yourself straight to the European countryside.

Italy

Florida Tile – Precious Collection Glazed Porcelain in Calacatta

This porcelain selection from Florida Tile looks just like authentic Italian marble – with added durability and without the matching price tag. Bright, white, and nothing short of luxurious, this bathroom is everything you'd hope to find in a glamorous Italian villa fit for Julius Caesar or the Roman gods themselves.

Artistic Tile – Venezia Terrazzo Green Field Tile

Does it get any more Italian than terrazzo? Artistic Tile's terrazzo tiles are full of character and come in five different colors. We noticed quite a few of these style tiles featured at Coverings 2023, so consider adopting the terrazzo trend for your next Italian-inspired home redesign. 

Portugal

Marble Systems – Miradouro Collection Casal Blue Ceramic

Portuguese for "viewpoint," the Miradouro Collection from Marble Systems heavily features blue and white to commemorate the porcelains brought to Portugal from China. Reminiscent of Mediterranean shorelines and their seaside abodes, any tile from this intricate collection will satisfy your sun-soaked dreams of coastal living.

Spain

Arto Tile – Traditional Hand Painted Deco Tiles

This ceramic backsplash from Arto Tile jubilantly captures the vibrant spirit of Spanish decor. Terracotta reds, rich blues, and citrus yellows shine in these elaborate patterns, immediately adding zest to your interior design.

Original Style – Artworks Decorative Tiles

We admire these tiles' floral ode to the Renaissance and the beauty they bring to this artfully elegant washroom. Original Style's decorative tiles look stunning as accents, and this arrangement, in particular, evokes the lush storybook gardens of sprawling Spanish manors.
