At Everitt & Schilling Tile, we are always looking for creative ways to use our incredible recycled wood tile. We are often asked about fireplace ideas, and how our tile can be integrated into this wonderful feature in a home. Take a look at these amazing fireplace ideas from around the county!
This amazing home in Austin uses our Nokomis Rawhide tile and creates an amazing compliment to the modern styling of the overall design.
By using the grey stone around the hearth and fireplace surround this beautiful design pulls out the incredible color pallet of our rawhide flats.
In this contemporary design our Boardwalk tile in our Gunstock color is the perfect accent to the stark materials of smooth drywall and concrete.
Its a beautiful addition of texture to an otherwise stark and sleek set of materials.
One of the challenges of fireplace design can be hot zones around the fireplace box itself. This great combination of materials utilizes a hot zone area of concrete and then surrounds that with our Timbeline reclaimed wood planks. This is a beautiful fireplace idea that showcases the rich coloration of reclaimed wood and the interesting utilization of an industrial material to address the hot zone of the fireplace box.
Here’s one of our favorite uses of our hardwood tile around a fireplace. The Divine Living Space used our upcycled tile to renovate their outdated fireplace. Its a complete transformation that changes the entire look of the room. You can read all about their updates and ideas in this article.

One of the hottest design trends of 2016 was the ancient Japanese burnt wood technique called Shou-sugi-ban. This technique takes Japanese Cedar or cypress wood and subjects it to a flame treatment. This originally was intended to help prevent against weather, fire and harsh environmental elements. Over the years, the pragmatic technique turned into an aesthetic that continues to rise in popularity. Take a look at these amazing examples of how this wood is used in architecture and design!

When Everitt & Schilling Tile decided to explore this as an enhancement to our line of the worlds finest reclaimed wood tile, we studied and set our sites on how we might obtain this amazing look. Over the course of the last several months we developed a product that is not only beautiful, but solved several design problems that the traditional method left to be desired.
- Inconsistency – When using an unpredictable method like burning, the wood finish can be erratic and wild in rage of coloration. E&S Tile is the worlds foremost expert on making inconsistent materials like wood become a very architecturally specifiable material. We approached this Japanese burnt wood technique by bringing all of our expertise to bear on the style. We focused on consistency when we started into this series and by using our proprietary methods found that we could achieve this amazing look in a repeatable product. All of the same techniques that make our tiles the finest product in the Architectural marketplace are found here again in our Ember series.
- Eliminate the Campfire – While burning wood can look amazing when done with excellence it has some unintended consequences. A wall of burnt wood can smell like you walked into an evening by the campfire. While that is romantic for a few hours, it isn’t a long term smell that people enjoy. We have found away to eliminate this issue while still preserving the amazing look of Japanese Burnt wood!
- Ease of Installation and Beautiful Design – As with all of the Everitt & Schilling tile we use our patent pending backing system to create amazing designs that add interest and beauty while making it easy to install.
