Facebook Live with Interior Design and Coverings

National Tile Day

Interior Design and Coverings teamed up to broadcast a live video segment as a Facebook Livestream where Editor Allie Weiss and Alena Capra discussed tile trends in honor of National Tile Day. The team discussed how tile plays a variety of roles worldwide and how tile proves to be an optimal flooring solution. Tile’s benefits include durability, ease of maintenance, sustainability, health benefits, and design versatility. As trends change and other flooring types fall in and out of favor, ceramic tile will remain one of the most trusted solutions.

Expect to see these trends this year at Coverings!
