Artisan Tiles – An Inexpensive Work of Art for Your Home

fruit-basket-mosaic-installationSince ancient times, handmade decorative Tile Art was an important expression of fine sense in design and decor.   Palaces and houses alike were traditionally adorned with decorative tile creating beautiful works of art.   With a richness and unique beauty, art tiles were made by hand for hundreds, even thousands of years.  Today, handcrafted tiles are the exception.

Naturally, handmade tile can be pricier than machine-made tile.  However, handcrafted tile doesn’t have to be thought of as a big expense.  In fact, artisan tiles can add a special touch to any tile project without blowing the budget.  Many kitchen remodels may include spending upwards of $10,000 on cabinets, but only $500 to $3000 on ten square feet of handmade tile for the backsplash.  When put in this perspective, it is very affordable and an inexpensive way to get a work of art in your home.
