The tile for the conservatory bathroom has been sitting at the house for months now.
Order No. 1 was the glass tile for the walls of the conservatory shower.
Order No. 2 was the conservatory bathroom floor tile.
Now I have placed my order with Best Tile for both the floor and walls of the master bathroom.
I feel a great weight lifted off my shoulders. Whew.
Then came the wall tile for the shower. Both Best Tile and Conestoga had the same tile but it was 54 cents cheaper per square foot at Conestoga. (I need 140 square feet). That’s a $75 savings.
Happily, since I had a written quote, Best Tile was able to match the price of not only the field tile but also the bullnose tiles on which I saved 19 cents per tile.
Again I remind everyone to just ask for a discount. It can always be denied but in this case the salesperson seemed happy to make the adjustment since she could basically prove it was warranted by my paperwork (which I lugged into the store).
It was helpful to have photos with measurements. When the Best Tile representative and I were talking about the bullnose tiles it was easy to point to an area and describe what would be most appropriate in a certain spot, from her perspective and from mine. Her counsel really helped me decide.
What decision are you up against?
