Amazing, Beautiful, Affordable!
We put tile up on one of our walls in our living/dining room and it turned out to be spectacular.
Our designer was great! We had an idea of the tile we wanted but he told us to go to the tile shop and look around for the tile we liked. Once we found it, he came with us to look at it and then talk about the grout colors and what would potentially look good with it in relation to the colors in our home and the tile itself. He told us about the standard grout color used and what happens when you seal it, if we wanted to seal it, he basically gave us a crash course in tile, it was great!
When he started he also asked us what type of pattern we wanted on the wall and whether we wanted to start with a full tile on one side which would have left us with a 2 inch tile when it spanned to the other end of the wall or if we wanted to start with a split tile, so it would look more symmetrical.
As for the work, the designer gave us an estimate, showed up when he said he was going to show up, finished when he said he was going to finish, and actually came in at his estimate (isn't that the way it should work). The job spanned over 3 days and everyday he cleaned up the work area, left his stuff in the corner, and covered it so it wasn't noticeable. It was so nice because we felt so comfortable that we could just leave him the keys and trust him with our house and that he would get the job done.
And also his recommendations were just that, he clearly stated that he was giving his opinion based on previous work and that ultimately the decision was ours he was just providing options. He wasn't pushy or pouty if we didn't go with his decision.
I couldn't believe the amount of effort he provided for such a small job but he treated us like we were a big client and that made us feel really good. It's hard to find tradespeople that are
6. Skilled at their trade
He has all these traits and it was evident in our experience with him and his finished product. Thanks again!
