"e natural beauty of engineered tile also isn't limited to oors. Alterna can be made an above-ground focal point as a lively accent wall or stylish backsplash." "When purchasing a surfacing product, there are two key factors to consider. First, they should determine where the product will be installed and the volume of tra"c that it will endure," orn-Brooks says. "Second, it is important for contractors and homeowners to be aware of the basic proj- ect measurements, so they can determine what tile sizes will be appropriate within a setting."

New ›nd- ings in the company's manufacturing process DALTILE is year Daltile announced several ooring series designed to meet the needs of home- owners and designers. Trellis Oak, released within the fall collection launch, delivers a rustic wood-look that never goes out of style. Available in multiple plank sizes that seamlessly emulate hardwood ooring, the series serves as the ideal design solution for high-tra"c rooms and transition areas. e D_Segni collection from Marazzi, which made its debut in the spring, takes inspiration from the popular encaustic trend to provide the look of traditional cement tiles in vintage, geometrical and metro- politan patterns. e product captures the essence of handmade tiles found in Italy, and seven solid colors (and 16 decorative patterns) allows clients to mix and match for an original design. "Tile is the most durable ooring surface, as it is inherently waterproof, scratchproof and stain proof, making it easy to maintain," says Paij orn-Brooks, vice president of market- ing for the Daltile Corporation. "In addition, many tile products can be utilized in exteri- or spaces, unlike vinyl and hardwood, which creates a seamless transition from inside the home to the outdoors."
