Tile has been transformed in the popular imagination from a pedestrian material to a sought-after design element. Home centers, specialty tile shops, and Internet sources offer the average homeowner an amazing range of mass-produced, handmade, and custom tile types made of materials including ceramics, natural stone, metal, and glass.
Organized by room, with chapters covering kitchens, bathrooms, living spaces, entries, and mudrooms, Tile Idea Book presents hundreds of photographs showing the effects created by all the major types of tile available today when installed in different settings: large rooms, such as kitchens, and small ones, such as bathrooms and entryways. It shows how color, pattern, and texture can be used to create special effects on floors and walls and provides specific information on how to recreate these effects. Also covered is the decorative use of tile in fireplaces and hearths, wainscoting, stairs, and halls, as well as in exterior settings such as terraces and patios.
Like my fellow baby boomers, I came of age at a time when it looked like tile was on the verge of becoming an artifact.
The Tile Idea Book by Andrew Wormer is my favorite book to show to my customers when they're struggling with what they want to do design-wise for their next tile job. We flip through the pages and get great ideas for kitchens, bathrooms -- just about any space where tile is the answer. This book was a very good investment. Grout Girl

A comprehensive do-it-yourself tiling book that includes planning, designing, selecting, installing, and repairing.
Ceramic and natural stone tile
surfaces add both functionality and beauty and can be used effectively both inside and outside a home. Whether you're looking for something as simple as tile for a kitchen floor, bathroom
shower stall, or a patio
, tile options range from basic choices to fully customized and handmade decorative pieces that are works of art in and of themselves.
At first glance setting tile may seem like a big job, and some installations are, but success with most tile jobs is a matter of common sense, getting good advice, practicing techniques unfamiliar, and following the instructions. Guiding you through the tiling process from design to execution is what Tiling 1-2-3 is all about. On the following pages you'll find more than 80 step-by-step installation, repair, and maintenance projects for your home. Each project has been reviewed by the experts at The Home Depot (R) to ensure that it's accurate and easy to follow so you can get the job done right the first time. You'll also find plenty of tiling tips and good advice that will save you time and money, and make every job easier
Of course, some tiling jobs are best left to professionals, and it's important to understand that you should not attempt projects beyond your level of skill and experience until you're ready.
There's a great deal of personal satisfaction to be had in using tile for the surfaces in your home. You'll add beauty and value, and every time you sit on your patio or work at your kitchen counter
you'll know you've done something that the whole family can enjoy.
This is a good book for people who want to start tiling or for people who have stated but would like to get more ideas, help or tricks. Rudi
This book is more or less useless on it's own. It tries to make tiling look really simple and straightforward. Tiling is actually not rocket science at all, but you really do need to spend time up front deciding what you are going to do. It isn't a weekend project. Get a real book written by someone who actually lays tile professionally and not just by people who sell the latest half-baked do it yourself supplies. I recommend "Tile Your Word" or "Setting Tile". Both top notch books. In fact, get both - given how expensive tile is it'll be worth the money.
