The Habitat Collection at Rubble Tile

Habitat is a versatile series that emphasizes the natural features of ceramic tile. Each tile and each color in the collection contains inherent glaze variation, which lends the handmade look and feel. The clay body of the tiles themselves are slightly textured and undulated, making each tile unique.

When installed properly, the finished look highlights the natural variation and texture, creating an organic flow to any space. It’s a great option for residential bathroom, kitchen, or laundry room walls and backsplashes. But Habitat is also rated for wall use in commercial spaces like restaurants, hotels and public buildings.

We’ve all been there. You choose an awesome tile for your project, but then you realize they don’t offer the coordinating pieces to finish off the look you’re going for.

With Habitat, we’ve got you covered.

The collection contains a full selection of decorative trim pieces and moldings to complete your installation. The options include the 0.6″ x 10.3″ liner, the 1″ x 10.3″ quarter round and a finishing edge of 0.55″ x 10.3″.

For moldings, you can select the 2″ x 10.3″ Molding or the 4″ x 10.3″ Base Board. Don’t forget to ask us about the available options for breaks, frame corners and end caps!

Habitat Installation Notes

Due to the nature of Habitat’s design, a certain amount of variation in color, shading, surface and texture are to be expected. There is shade variation between the individual field tiles and between field and trim within each color.

Due to the shape of the pieces and the nature of production, this is especially true for variation between field and trims. Trim pieces like quarter rounds, finishing edges and other moldings may have more glaze pooling and different pooling effects than other pieces. Expect variation within each run, and from production to production.

It’s important to blend the tile within each carton and from multiple cartons during installation. This is best achieved by laying out the material prior to installation.

Contact the Rubble Tile showroom for more information on Habitat samples and pricing, or to set up a design consultation in person or online.
