Our showroom plays host to all different types of people daily, from homeowners and do-it-yourselfers to designers, architects, and contractors. Everyone has their own story, with its own set of factors. There’s a physical space, a desired look, and a goal: find tile.
There is so much to think about when purchasing materials for your tile installation. Even if you've hired an installer, the correct information about what grout to buy rarely gets communicated. Sanded or nonsanded? What brand? High performance or not? Seattle Tile founders Denee and Tom Foti have amassed 30+ years of grout knowledge and installation experience, and they’ve taught by example what considerations ensure the right grout for your installation.
We get the question a lot: What is the best advice we can give you, a homeowner about to embark on this process of choosing décor? As designers we have lots of opinions and suggestions, but we are human after all with individual tastes and styles. Only you can know what you truly like. Trust and enjoy yourself, and if you ever second guess, make it a question of whether or not you will like what you’ve chosen after five years living with it.
