Preparing to make your tile selections

What do I need to do before my appointment? Do I need to bring anything? We get these questions all the time and can attest to the difference preparation makes. Following these easy recommendations will make the most of your time and ensure that your appointment goes smoothly.

Start by Making an Appointment

At Studio Tile & Design, our showroom staff are not simply salespeople. We are a team of highly trained, professional interior designers who truly care about you and your project. Tile selections can be daunting, but we are here to guide you in making the right choice for your lifestyle, taste, and budget. Scheduling an appointment ensures that we are prepared and available to assist you from start to finish.

What to Bring to the Showroom

We highly recommend that you bring your cabinet and countertop samples along with you to your appointment. Having these handy makes coordinating colors a breeze. Note that when selecting kitchen backsplash tiles, having your countertop samples is especially helpful to ensure everything is harmonious. If your cabinet and/or solid surface suppliers do not offer complimentary samples, they may still allow you to borrow samples from their showroom on the day of your appointment.

In addition to choosing colors and finishes, we will also discuss layouts and trim options during your appointment. Therefore, we recommend that you bring floor plans and/or elevations if you have them. This enables us to discuss these details more accurately and tailor our recommendations to your specific needs.

If you are choosing tile to complement existing elements, such as cabinets, countertops, and paint colors, or other tiles in the same room, please bring photos of your space. This helps us understand your style and make suggestions that are appropriate for your home. Many remodel clients find it very helpful to bring in a cabinet door for color reference as well.

Make sure you're fully prepared by following this checklist:
