It’s hard to believe it has already been an entire year since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. in full force. However, it’s comforting to see the industry beginning to return to “normal,” from hosting more in-person events to arranging other types of training and educational events around the country.

Although things are still uncertain, it’s a good sign to see that people are starting to adapt to this new normal we’ve been faced with -- and that they’re not letting it stop the tile industry from flourishing and moving forward.

Last month, we introduced our new eMagazine, which has garnered a lot of positive feedback. Full of interactive features, this new platform has allowed our creative juices to flow, which I’m looking forward to exploring as we move into 2021.

In this edition, we delve into all things bathroom-related, from innovative shower designs to the types of tiles and installation systems used to accent these integral spaces. Through various articles, learn more about how tile complements bathroom designs in both residential and commercial spaces, and check out our product showcase of the newest shower installation systems on the market. Also, don’t forget to read our technical focuses, which discuss the importance of shower installation systems, as well as critical points of ceramic tile design and installation in tiled shower assemblies.

With each issue, we are striving to bring you more pertinent content, which you can learn from and apply. If you’d like to read more about any topics that we have or haven’t touched on, please let me know. I can be reached anytime at Don’t be shy.

Until next time, my friends.
