choosing tile: Tile World--Flushing, NY

Although the color on the image is a bit washed out, the basic matching can be seen.  We chose the mosaic for the back-splash, the slightly grained composite floor tiles, against our "rye" stained maple flat-front kitchen cabinets.  Tile Floor: Provenza--an Italian quartz-composite tile, with 40% post-consumer content; Back-splash: Hirsch Glass Cabinets: KraftMaid; Counter-top: Quartz Surface by allen + roth (Sage Surfaces) Sugarbrush color

Tile World in Flushing is perhaps the best showroom for tile we have come across so far in our travels--NYC and beyond.  Yesterday marked our third trip to the tile-meca to finally purchase.

TW has good service and a HUGE selection--two floors of tile, and downstairs, there is a kitchen cabinet showroom. KitchenWorld.

Our sales person was attentive, and patient--although, as we were undecided in many cases, she buzzed off to take care of other customers in-between her attention to us.  It all worked out in the end.  Tile purchased, and samples in hand for Salem, our contractor.

When we first looked at kitchen cabinetry, we sat with a TW/KW designer, and mocked up our kitchen space.  The pricing was reasonable, and the available selection was pretty decent.  Although ultimately we went with Lowes for the extended no-cost financing options, the folks at KitchenWorld were efficient and friendly. 

Bath tiling decisions next....
