Metal - Alternative to Ceramic Tile
Centuries ago, Europeans and colonial Americans finished their homes with metal ceiling panels and even metal roofs to provide long lasting beauty in their homes.
History repeats. Metal tile and metal flooring are the newest alternatives to recent decor traditions that have featured ceramic tile, marble and wood flooring.
Ceramic Tile and Marble are no longer the only choices for elegant wall and floor coverings. A unique floor covering of solid metal tiles and planks is available to meet the discriminating tastes of homeowners and designers. Some designs are one-of-a-kind decorative treatments. Some functional spaces need distinguished sensibility for an artistic temperament and the new designs fit the bill.
Carina Works, an innovative metal tile and cabinet hardware design and manufacturing company based in Austin, Texas, has developed handcrafted metal tiles that are sensuously beautiful and an alternative to the classic floor or wall treatment of European ceramic tiles and fine woods.
The scientifically engineered glazing of Carina Works solid metal floor and wall products allows them to be installed anywhere ordinary ceramic tiles are used. Carefully calculated grinding, brushing, and color treating the solid aluminum material produces a completely handmade, individual work of art with a rich, reflective texture. When installed, these pieces come alive with motion and light providing a unique visual experience in color and design that can be appreciated from any angle.
The planks are 4 feet in length and available in standard 4" and 6" widths, as well as custom widths. The tiles are 2.5", 4", 6" and 12" square, and are stunning accents for the metal floor planks. Wall products are available in gloss or matte finishes; floor products in matte. Custom logos, designs, and colors can be worked into the tiles and/or planks before glazing.
