Meet Michelle Cautley, Showroom Design Consultant at Tile X Design

Michelle is a true tile expert—which means she loves guiding customers through the selection process while offering expert advice and recommendations to ensure their project exceeds expectations—every time!

We asked Michelle to help us get a sneak peek of what it’s like visiting our tile showroom.

Tile X Design: Michelle, what can people expect when they visit Tile X Design?

Michelle: We like to make our displays look as enticing as possible and feel reminiscent of the current season and hottest trends. But if I’m going to be honest, our tiles don’t need much help drawing you in! 

We want our customers to feel inspired and excited to see, touch, and experience our tile collections first-hand. But because we have such an impressive assortment of brands, materials, and colors to browse from, we do recommend scheduling an appointment

This way, you’ll get a one-on-one consultation, so we can learn more about your project, wishlist, and budget—and you can get the personalized attention you need to plan the details.

Tile X Design: What if someone doesn’t schedule an appointment?

Michelle: We are always here to serve, so even if you don’t have an appointment, you can stop in and browse our tile collections and ask questions. We’re always closeby to lend a helping hand.

However, if you have a design in mind and need specific advice or recommendations, an appointment is always beneficial.

Tile X Design: What advice would you give someone who has never visited our showroom?

Michelle: I always tell people to come as prepared as they can. If you’re renovating your kitchen, for example, bring in a sample of your countertop—whether that’s a piece of the material itself or an image from your smartphone. 

Updating your living area with new floor tiles? Bring me some samples of your furniture or show me your instagram feed of home design ideas you love. We’ll work together to create a complete picture of what’s possible, what’s functional, and what’s aesthetically pleasing!

Tile X Design: What makes Tile X Design‘s showroom so special?

Michelle: Well, aside from having an incredible selection of tile pieces for literally every application you can imagine, everyone on our showroom team has a design background. 

This means we know how to pair shapes, colors, and patterns together, and are up-to-date on all the latest trends and technologies that continue to evolve our industry. So, no matter who you talk to while here, you’re always working with a tile expert.

Tile X Design: What should our customers know before they arrive?

Michelle: We all want you to be 100% happy with your purchase, so no matter the challenge you bring to us, we work with you to overcome every obstacle and ensure you love your tile and it lasts you for years.

So, if you can’t decide on a tile or need help envisioning patterns and colors in your space, we offer free tile samples you can bring home to test out and bring back when you’re ready!

Tile X Design: Michelle, what’s your favorite tile design?

Michelle: I tend to gravitate toward handmade tiles, and right now, the Baba Chic Mosaic collections remind me of my travels around the world. They invoke an image of a Middle Eastern wall garden, and I find them quite stunning.

Though not required, we do highly recommend the following tips to help you make the most of your showroom visit and navigate through the selection process.

  1. Do your research: Before visiting the showroom, take some time to research different tile styles, materials, and trends. This will give you a basic understanding and help you narrow down your options.

Walk around our showroom to get a sense of the different options available. 

  1. Compare options: Once you have narrowed down your selection, compare the tiles side by side. Look at them under different lighting conditions and consider how they will complement your existing decor. Pay attention to any subtle differences in color or texture that may affect your decision. 

If you’re torn between a few options, ask us about our tile samples. This will allow you to see the tiles in your space and evaluate how they look alongside your existing decor.
