Without them, no bathroom or kitchen would ever really be complete. From the floors to the walls, and a myriad number of spots in between, tiles are the versatile decorative accessory every space could benefit from.
Beyond standard subway tiles—which seem to deck just about every bathroom as of late—you can get creative with ceramic, cement, and glossy designs. The list goes on and on. So when it comes to sourcing, where does one start? Not to worry: You don’t have to splurge on an imported type, or compromise on style just to stay within your budget.
To help you navigate the overwhelming array of available options, we went straight to our favorite home improvement store. Read on to see the best tiles at Home Depot.
