If the uniform look of machine-made ceramic tile is a little too bland for your taste, check out the handmade offerings from Trikeenan. The New Hampshire–based purveyor makes its product from pure stoneware clay, using traditional techniques such as cutting and glazing by hand, so each tile has slight variations. Choose from such collections as Arts and Crafts or Glass Windows (pictured), an ingenious line that consists of ceramic fused with recycled glass. Tiles are available in 52 glaze colors, 15 glass colors, and a variety of sizes.
