Aliso Bone Ceramic Tile comes in the same warm beige tones as Sigaro Dunes Ceramic Tile, but with a mottled, cloud-like pattern mixed in with the classic linear look of vein-cut stone. As you can see from this room scene, the blended patterning really focuses your attention on the individual tile rather than drawing your eye out across a strictly linear pattern.

This authentic replication of natural stone has a graceful feel, yet is tough enough for use in residential and commercial settings. Unlike natural stone, ceramic tile is moisture-resistant, making it the perfect material for wet locations like the bathroom shown here.
