Mexican tile island and prep table. Tile conserves resources, ie hardwoods to make butcher block top, or marble to make top. One layer of inch marine plywood bonded to one layer of cement board to make a solid base for the tile.
Use of tiles and brick together in a patio. This is a unique mix of the two that I have not seen before. It can add color and pattern to a porch or patio. Not including the designs created by the brick and tile together.
