Diana at Tile International was very helpful and didn't pressure us into any expensive tile. While I really liked Diana, and they had a ton of selection, I can't help but feel that tile and stone showrooms are kind of out of touch these days. Between Home Depot and online tile stores, it just seems insane that they charge such high prices. We were quoted $300 bucks to do our mudroom (just for the tile). It's 20 square feet! We'd have to buy whole cases, which would be 50% extra tile than we needed....so we went out to dinner at The Naked Fish and then scooted over to HD. We found the tile we wanted, in the size we wanted for $2.67/foot AND we can buy individual tiles! It will be the same look...how do these tile showrooms stay in business? I honestly think it is because people don't bother to do their research.
I think the 6"x12" ceramic slate-looking tiles are going to look great in our back entry way!
I'm so excited to get going on all of the next steps! From this point out, everything we do will be putting in place parts of our new kitchen! Next steps: frame in the two new windows, spray base cabinets gray (though we are still waiting on our tinted laquer), electrical, inspection for electrical, insulation, inspection for framing and insulation, flooring, bead board ceiling and drywall, and then we can install cabinets, get countertops templated etc.........One step at a time! The goal is to get countertops in (and hence a functioning, though not finished kitchen) by the start of school. I'm getting very excited! Cannot wait to see the new windows in place!
