Sean wants to share this picture for all of you to view the spectacular tile install that we just did at the Union Bank in Jeffersonville, Vermont. He is so proud of the installer for being able to mimic the overhead light fixture with a porcelain tile.
The installer did a little homework on how to get the octagon shape perfect. (He is certainly better at geometry than I ever was). Larry knows his stuff and that is why he does what he does.
We install a lot of tile here at Elegant Floors. Both ceramic and porcelain along with glass. Tile is timeless and the wear is immeasurable. It is very versatile and used for many applications. Floors, showers, countertops, backsplashes and fireplace surrounds. I myself live with a mosaic patterned tile that was installed in the 1980”s and still looks modern today in my bathroom. 

With today’s tile products you can create almost anything that you can imagine. The colors and sizes make most designer’s dreams come true.  With some resembling wood grain, marble and natural stone. And the textures: smooth and glossy to a natural texture and matte finish.

Lately we have been installing quite a few bathrooms in the Stowe area. Using tiles in a 4’X8’ shower. With most of these tiles being imported from Spain. If I get pictures I will share them with you.
There is also a beautiful lake house in Shelburne that has a very impressive master bath. Using plank tiles and 2x2” tiles in marble and porcelain.  With the glass shower it looks like it should be in a design magazine. The walls are also covered in tile. You would be envious. I almost feel that it’s too pretty to use.

Some people bring up that the tile being cold. Yes, it can be in these New England winters. But you can have the option of installing radiant heat to keep those tootsies warm. Area rugs also add warmth and style to a room. 

The benefits outnumber the drawbacks. It is easy to maintain and clean, you can achieve the look you want and have great durability. Great for those mudrooms at this time of year. Just remember to leave your boots in the room.

So, if you would like to know more about tile stop by our Shelburne showroom which is only minutes from Burlington, So. Burlington, Essex and Charlotte.
