Tile Me Up, Tile Me Down

Daltile Design Studio

Designed by designers for designers, the new 6,400-square-foot Daltile Design Studio includes five room vignettes, bathrooms, shower, kitchen and fireplace to help visualize combinations of tile and stone, as well as a Star Wars armory of tech tools. Check out the floor visualizer and kitchen renovation simulator for inspiration — choose the type of light in your current space to see the color it casts on different textures, or let the interactive screen show you what knobs, finishes, backsplashes and floors work best. Other areas are set up like a working design firm, with communal tables and a library space with loose tile samples. Newness to note: Larger-format floor tile (24” by 48”) from the NEXT collection, mini marble mosaics and subtly iridescent subway tiles; oil-rubbed bronze, gilded copper and forged steel tiles.  The massive light installation of dangling tiles alone merits a visit. 1502 Slocum St., 214.760.1115.
