Dallas—Daltile is currently launching its new Rekindle collection of porcelain tile that not only looks great, but is two-times more slip resistant than regular tile, while also eliminating 99% of bacteria on the tile surface. These superior performance features are made possible through the inclusion of StepWise and Microban technologies that won’t wear off or wash away, according to the company. The Rekindle collection is suitable for floor, wall, countertop, shower and exterior floor applications. This concrete look, large format tile is available in five earthy tones and is made in the USA.
“The aesthetics of our new Rekindle collection found their inspiration in serene, spa-like, garden spaces that are very popular in today’s interior design,” said Laura Grilli, director of product design for Dal-Tile LLC. “Beautiful beiges, a soothing white, various grays and a modern terracotta combine with the rustic comfort of a soft concrete visual to bring peace and harmony to the energy of a space.”
Grilli also said the Rekindle Collection nicely plays into the current interior design trend of restorative nature. “The trend of restorative nature incorporates many of the principles of Biophilic Design—establishing close contact with nature, bringing nature inside our homes to allow us to benefit from the reinvigorating power of nature,” Grilli said.
It is available in 24 x 48, 24 x 24 and 12 x 24 floor tiles for indoor and outdoor use. The Rekindle Collection also features 2 x 6 herringbone mosaics as well as canvas dot mosaics to add shape and dimension.
