On A Budget

This means that you might not get the exact size or texture you’re wanting but you’ll be in your budget. Will you be ok with that? Figuring out what you’re willing to compromise on before you go tile shopping is important. You will know exactly what you’re looking at and what you’re willing to compromise on.

Common Mistakes

Remember your tile thickness and your decorative tile thickness. Your primary tile should be thinner than your decorative tile. Order all your trim pieces in the same batch so that they are the same glaze and thickness. And ask if the tile you want is even in stock. It can be discouraging when you’ve ordered something only to find out it is going to be weeks before you get it.
