The tile wall section consist of applications where we are putting the tile on a veritcal area. It could be a shower, bathroom or kitchen walls, fireplace surrounds plus much more. Although backsplashes are also wall applications, I have researved a seperate section for them. The largest challenage with wall applications is that you are always fighting gravity plus many times you have too minimize the differences between three different planes while lining up grout lines.
Over the years I have found bathrooms to be quite gradifying because of their complexity and creativity. These projects are the type that distingish one installer from another.
Fireplace surrounds tend to be the focal point of the room. At the very least, they should compliment the rest of the decor.
