Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), October 14, 2014 – Centura Tile, North America’s premier distributor of both residential and commercial floor and wall fashions, is announcing the need for homeowners to update their fireplaces before the cold season sets in.
“Don’t let the cold weather creep up on you without having your fireplace ready,” says Ross Keltie, vice president of sales and marketing at Centura Tile. “Not only is it great for keeping an area warm, but it’s a great place to gather family and enjoy each other’s company.”
Keltie explains that tile has come a long way and that ceramic, porcelain, and even marble and stone tiles now offer so much variety in how they can be used to decorate an entire home, including the fireplace.
“There are just so many options now when it comes to the type of tile and how it can be used throughout the home,” he observes. “Ceramic and porcelain tiles can be used almost anywhere in the home. Centura Tile currently also has a Europa Marble Collection that works great with fireplaces; it’s amazing to see how the marble has been utilized.”
Keltie adds that the wide variety of tiles has made home improvement much more innovative than in years past, and one key area a difference has been seen in is how homeowners use tiles for their fireplaces.
“A fireplace has to fit in with the rest of the room surrounding it, so having all this variety is crucial when trying to form some kind of cohesion within a space,” Keltie concludes. “And when it’s done correctly with iridescent glass tile or covered in pieces of rough slate, or with the aforementioned Europa Marble Collection, then you really get a feel for how much of a difference the right tile can truly make.”
