Our design consultants have years of experience with flooring products. They can tell you all about the latest trends that sell a home, and give tips about what types of flooring to use where based on traffic patterns and ease of clean up.
Television shows and magazines that share ideas about interior design are created to appeal to a wide area of distribution, so an idea you see on one of them may not sell in this area. Not only styles, but also colors are regional. Our consultants know what is popular in this area and can help you add value to your home.
Also, they can save you time. Our design consultants know all of our lines. They can help you quickly find the flooring you are looking for, so you do not have to waste time looking through a huge warehouse of samples.

And someone is going to have to install that flooring. If you are an experienced do-it-yourselfer, City Tile can often to make your job easier with tips our designers have learned from our installers over the years – as the installers have laid thousands and thousands of floors.
