This is Memorial Day weekend in 2018, the unofficial start of Summer. PBS says this day was: “originally called Decoration Day, from the early tradition of decorating graves with flowers, wreaths and flags, Memorial Day is a day for remembrance of those who have died service.” A day of this type is also observed in many other nations around the world. That bit of historical perspective said, let’s play around with unpacking the meaning of today’s post. Antiqued Glazed Ceramic Tile is a bit of a mouthful, but if you break down what each word gives you, then we magically arrive at a County Floors product category.
“Antiqued“- is to make or finish something in a fashion that creates an older visual appearance. Antiquing is quite common in furniture, wood, and stone, to furnish three easy examples.
“Glazed” – within our context, is broadly considered to be a thin coat of enamel or liquid glass that is applied to or over a tile body. It is a substance more so than necessarily a process.
“Ceramic” – can defined gingerly as things such as pots, tiles, plates and other clay items that have been hardened by heat usually in a kiln or more generically, in an industrial oven.
“Tile” – Per Merriam-Webster: “tile is usually a flat piece of hard clay, stone, or other material that is used for covering walls, floors, etc.”
This is where we have been going with this post on Antiqued Glazed Ceramic Tile. When the four individual words are placed together, the product result is our Antiqued Tile Collection. Please click here to learn more and here to request samples.
