Tiles and stone are surely among the most elegant of flooring materials. While nowadays they are only usually seen in the kitchen or bathroom, in days gone by they were the material of choice for the rich and famous to lavish their homes with. The Victorians liked to create tile masterpieces in the hallways of their homes, and the Romans used stone and tile to create mosaics on the floors of all of their rooms. You can now choose to have tile that has been partially-recycled, so that you know you are doing your bit for the environment as well. If you wish to create a beautiful and unique floor that will dazzle you every time you come home, consider tile.
Our tiles take indoor decor to a whole new level. Not only is it charming and beautiful, it is also a chance to bring out your creative side. You can choose to have a tile floor that is all one color, a mixture of colors, a repeating (or random) pattern, or have them arranged to make a picture on your floor. We offer a range of colors, sizes, styles and textures to charm and entice you! Practical and strong, tile will remain resistant to scratches and stains, and is very easy to clean and maintain.
So if you're looking for something different that is both quirky and eye-catching, tile may be the floor for you.
We help you every step of the way after you’ve selected your new floor: professional on-site measurement, removal of old flooring, and skilled installation that includes moving your furniture and replacing trim. We do it all expertly, so your floor will look amazing and give lasting satisfaction.
To ensure a hassle-free installation for carpet, here’s a checklist of things to do before the installer arrives.
- If your tile has any linearity to the pattern, decide whether you want it to run in one direction or to be quarter-turned, so that an overall “checkerboard” type pattern is achieved.
- Make sure you know who’s removing your existing flooring. If you wish, the installer will do it. If not, you should make arrangements to have it removed. To minimize dust, vacuum your old carpet before it’s removed and, after it’s up, vacuum the floor thoroughly.
- Who’s moving the furniture? Decide in advance if you want to take on the responsibility or if you want the installer to handle it. Either way, be sure to remove all fragile items from the room, and don’t leave anything—such as drapery or plants—hanging over the installation area.
- Measure door clearances before you have your carpet is installed. If the new floor is thicker than your existing floor, door bottoms may rub. Plan in advance to have someone shave or saw the correct amount off the bottom of each door so it does not drag.
- Paint first. If you’re planning to paint, wallpaper, or do any other remodeling in the room, it’s best to do it before your carpet is installed. Keep extra paint to touch up any post-installation nicks.
It’s also a good idea to check with us directly to find out if there are other actions we recommend before installation. Just call a member of our friendly sales staff.
