Unfortunately, there are no other stores in your area that carry other colors. We're working hard to expand our dealer network, so please check our dealer locator periodically for updates.

Where can I find the other colors of tiles? The only colors I could find in my area were the Beige-Camel & Moss. I would really like to see some of the others at a store in Southern Illinois around and as close to Marion, Il as possible. The Menards is the only place that seems to carry them.

I installed my floor in the laundry room over the weekend and could not more pleased with the way it turned out.

The only problem that I had was the floor vent. We tried to use the rotozip and it didn't seem to be doing what we wanted. The vent was about 3/4 into the tile and within an inch from one edge. We made our drawing and cut from the closest edge and cut the tile into to pieces with one portion of the vent outline still on the main piece. The final cut was made to get fit the vent hole. I just locked the tabs into the other main pieces and put double back tape on the small piece the make a good fit. When I did my grout I just filled the two seams with grout and put the cover over it and its looks great. Know one would know that we had to cut the tile in half just by looking down at the floor the vent covers almost all the seams.

Thanks again for the information I was able to get off this site it made my job a lot easier.

Thanks again

Glad to be of help (if we were). If anything else comes up please come back. I also know these guys would like to have email photos of finished projects if you get the chance. I think they must have a photo album in the works somewhere.

Neatly tile up to within 1/8" of the existing base board and caulk that small 1/8" gap. Don't use the grout there, use caulk instead.

In fact, you can buy colored caulks that will match standard portland cement grouts. Your grout is not a portland cement grout but you still may be able to match one of those tile caulks to your Avaire urethane grout.

i really didn't want to put anyother molding along the baseboard if i did that it would throw baseboard off for the entire dining room. the foyer is ajacent to the carpet in the dining room without any dividers. once you come into the foyer it is just one big room in front of you. the baseboard starts at the door jamb and goes down the wall on the same side of the door and the tile (approx 3'). there will be just a small amount of tile before the carpet starts.

I can't seem to get my brain wrapped around this.

Most door openings have casings that terminate the baseboard, but not in all cases. The tile (meeting other floor coverings) usually is addressed with trim only between the casings/door jambs and the tile also usually dives into the door opening. Either slightly or to the center of the door jamb or wall.

When transitioning from tile to another floor covering midspan of a baseboard you can sometimes remove the base to raise it (atop the tile) at the transition-point and install a decorative block at that location. This block is a means of ecusing the change in elevation of the baseboard.

Or, install the tile and then add shoe mold only on top of the tile leaving the baseboard in tact everywhere.

yes it is baseboard molding. there would approx. 3' of tile then go into the carpet area. the baseboard starts at the door and continues down the wall (in one piece)comming into contact with the carpet and the tile. i had a feeling that it would not look very nice, but i would like to put tile in the foyer.
