Transworld Tile

If you are ready to tile your home, the experts at Transworld Tile are here to help. You have many options when it comes to your tile: marble, ceramic, porcelain, glass–which do you choose? Today in our blog we would like to share a little bit about the history of one of the oldest types of tile: ceramic.

Ceramic tile is used almost everywhere these days: shops, homes, churches, mosques, you name it! But that was not always the case.

The earliest ceramic tiles we know of were made in Egypt around 4000 BC. In the 13th and 14th centuries, Europe began to floor their churches with colorfully decorated tiles. In 1584, potters in a Dutch town called Delft began to produce very fine and recognizable tile. They were famous for their blue and white ceramic tile designs.

In 1725, most potters went broke and no longer produced tile. However, at this time, two European styles remained prominent: Maiollica and Delft. The Delft tile, as we mentioned before, is most recognizable because of the blue and white coloration. These Delft potters adopted a Chinese style of decorating their tiles. The Maiollica came from Italy and Spain. These tiles became known for their bright colors and geometric designs. These tiles were often used for floors.

Once the 20th century rolled around, people began to focus a lot more on hygiene than they used to in centuries past. Tile became popular just about everywhere: kitchens, bathrooms, and even subways.

Tile is still a staple in the home today, with many people preferring tiled bathrooms, kitchens, and floors because of their durability and beautiful appearance. If you are considering any tile work in your home, be sure to call the experts at Transworld Tile.
