Carolina Tile & Stoneworks presented us with probably the most attractively priced option for our entryway. They also provided us with a quote for a glass tile backsplash in the kitchen. They were professional and polite, which is exactly what I expect from the contractors we work with.
I was turned on to Mosaic Tile for their green approach. My husband and I are trying to embrace a more green way of life. I did appreciate the time of the salesperson we talked to, but after getting the explanation on their green approach, I wasn't overly impressed. It seemed to me that they were only making a half hearted attempt and it sounded more like a marketing ploy to us.
I had so much fun at the Designer Flooring & Interior showroom, I could have spent an entire afternoon there and been quite content. The samples of the materials they have is mind blowing. I am not one for hardwood floors, but even they made me a believer. Not only are their flooring materials superior, their sales staff were quite extraordinary as well.
While we received a glowing recommendation onn Brentwood Carpet & Flooring, I found their choices to be ordinary. I was not excited by anything they had and was even less excited by the costs of their items. I did talk to a salesman and asked about how they could charge what they were for the items they had. I was told they only sell quality and you can't put a pricetag on that. Perhaps they can't, but I can.
The problem when you look at and compare so many different home improvement options, the world of choices opens up to you. I had never considered a tile backsplash for my kitchen, however, once seeing the gorgeous glass tiles by Byrd, it made me see kitchen renovation in a much different light. Byrd has so much to offer, my head was spinning. We didn't leave until we got a quote for their tiles.
Flooring Express had probably the most diversity in the flooring elements we had seen to date. I hadn't considered laminate, but perhaps at a later time, that would be appropriate for the laundry area. Our intent was to get ideas and a feel for the stone and tiles we were interested in for our entryway. Their stones weren't as fancy as others we had seen, but I do think what they offered was very tasteful.
Brazeal Stone & Cabinets was referred to us as a resource for the stone work we were interested in. They also gave us information on the cabinetry they do. While beautiful, I did not nor do I now want to get involved in something that complicated. Their stonework, however, did catch my eye and is something we will consider.
Now that we have some kind of direction with the stone/marble work we are looking for on our damaged entryway floor, we have been researching various vendors who specialize in that. I found the AB Stone Boutique, who were very helpful in showing us the various options that were available we didn't know about. They had some stone neither of us had ever seen before. It was a very educational hour of our time.
The visit we had to Triangle Custom Granite was very enlightening. We are trying to decide the most cost effective ways of making some necessary fixes around our new house without having to restore to major demolition. Triange gave us some very interesting options with custom granite countertops. There were more varieties than either of us had imagined and were very pleased to see how many options we had.
Lancia Marble gave me so many ideas on how we could upgrade our house without having to sink a ton of money into it. We have some definite things we need to fix and the floor in the entryway is at the top of our list. We weren't quite sure which way we wanted to go, but after seeing the marble options Lancia offers, I'm beginning to think that's the direction we should take. My husband, on the other hand, fell in love with their stone options. Either way, their products are gorgeous.
