Wall Tile for Showers and Backsplashes

Wall tile was designed for a few reasons, such as breaking up long and dull walls, as well as protecting the wall underneath. Tile makes a great backsplash for walls and showers due to its heat resistance and durability. Wall tiles are even easy to clean, and you have a wide range of design options from which to choose. Ceramic and porcelain can be installed in custom showers and backsplashes.
