Black Décor Facts

The facts are that black décor never goes out of style and truly matches most anything in its vicinity. When it comes to black tile, it can make a bold impression and will take any space up a few notches on the modern scale.

Black tends to have an authoritative, sophisticated feel to it and as such, makes a big impact – whether used as a small accent or as floor-to-ceiling home décor. Just like the little black dress in most women’s closets, black tile is timeless, standing the test of time in home décor and design.

Black Tile Uses

Because black goes with almost everything, it’s extremely versatile and can add character to any room in your home. Most popular choices for black tile include using it in both kitchen and bathroom design such as the Concerto Black Glossy. In the kitchen, black tile works well as a backsplash, in flooring and as countertops. The same goes for using black tile in your bathroom, but it also looks stunning as an accent wall and in the shower area, too.
