Design Tile Tips

With so many options available, selecting the tile that is right for you can seem overwhelming. Here are some tips to get you started and to help you get the job done right.

Measuring Rule of Thumb
After determining which areas you want to tile, multiply the length by the width of your space to calculate the approximate square footage, and then add 5%. For areas that will be set diagonally, you will need to add 10% to the square footage.

Color Coordination
Because colors can vary slightly depending on your monitor configurations, we recommend ordering samples of the tiles that you are interested in. This gives you the opportunity to see how they look on the actual area to be tiled and allows you to judge color compatibility before placing your full order.

Size Selection
Ceramic tile is available in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, colors, patterns and textures. Our sales associates are more than happy to work with you to help determine the tile best suited for your needs.

Pricing Flexibility
On our website, you will find hundreds of tiles in price ranges to fit any budget. Remember to keep in mind that the durability of a tile is not always reflective of its price.
