Guarantee

Because each ceramic tile is handmade from a block of clay; not molded, and hand-glazed, the price for ceramic tiles vary by the type, size, and time to produce. You can purchase some of my tiles separately, or have me design your ceramic tile borders, kitchen backsplash, ceramic tile countertops, ceramic floor tiles, fireplace designs, or any other custom hand made tile design.

The majority of our clients purchase our tiles film mounted for a quick and cost-effective, professional installation, every time!

Because I'm trying to work a 5 day work-week prior to retirement, I might or might not take your mosaic order. There are only so many hours in a day. :(


You are buying directly from Diane @ Tiles with Style.  I  DO NOT sell my art in stores. That means you are SAVING money AND receiving the best quality, fully vitrified, decorative ceramic tiles, at probably the lowest price on the Web or in tile stores.

Important factors when purchasing handmade tiles

When you are purchasing handmade ceramic tiles, there are a couple of important factors to remember:

  • the cost per piece / cost per square foot

  • where are you planning on installing the tiles

cost per piece / square foot

In this scenario, you require 10 tiles for a backsplash. The tiles measure 4"x4". The cost per tile is $25. You're thinking, what a great deal right?

Actually the time put into making handmade decorative tiles is extensive, so $25 is cheap. However, when you calculate how many 4"x4" tiles are in 1 SF of tile, it's another story all together...

There are 9, 4x4" tiles per square foot. If you multiply $25 x 9, your total charge per square foot is $225. The total for 10 tiles would be $250.

 

installation location

Depending on the location of your installation, it's extremely important to purchase the correct type of handmade ceramic tile. They are NOT all alike!

If you are doing a shower, pool, fountain, or outside installation where tiles get wet, the tiles MUST be FULLY VITRIFIED.

A tile that is "vitrified" is considered "glass-like. It has been processed in such a way that it has extremely low porosity and water absorption. This means it stain resistant and very strong. By having extremely low porosity, this makes tiles "frost-free."

At Tiles with Style, we use mid-fire porcelain/earthenware clay-bases. These clays must be fired to a specific temperature to be vitrified. We fire to a slightly higher temp, to assure all of our decorative ceramic tiles are fully vitrified.

Vitrified tiles have better mechanical strength. They can be used in a variety of temperatures, are scratch resistant, resistant to acid, alkali, and chemicals, and resistant to staining. Stones, such as marble or natural granite, terrazzo, etc. can stain, scratch, and chip.


NOTE: If you aren't sure if a tile you like is vitrified, tap it. It should have a higher pitch sound than one that is not. You can also tell by turning the tile over and scratching the back with a metal device. A vitrified tile will not scratch.


Most store-bought wall tiles, Mexican terracotta tiles, and decorative tiles are NOT vitrified. Tiles that are not vitrified can absorb water over time and possibly breakdown. I have seen this several times from clients. They purchase hand painted square tiles with scenes, install them in fountains, showers, etc. and after a few years the tiles begin to flake and fall apart...heartbreaking!


purchase overage

NOTE: IF YOU ARE PURCHASING LOOSE TILES, always order 10% overage on round or wavy water tiles, just as you would any manufactured tile, to assure you have the correct quantity for your installations. You will run out if you do not order overage.

WHY? Each piece can be installed ANYWHERE in a mosaic. That means you might not have the right size(s) to finish. We even run out and always make some overage.

Also, I HIGHLY recommend that you lay out your mosaics first and then film mount the tiles before trying to install them in your targeted area.


Email or call for completion timeframes. Normal residential orders are 4-8 weeks, depending on the size of the mosaic tile order(s). Loose fish, lily pads, etc. are about 1-2 weeks.

how will my order be shipped?

  • Wrapped with bubble wrapped/foam sheets

  • Film wrapped

  • Peanuts

  • USPS Priority Mail (3-day).

    You pay the shipping charges, not me. I have a very low profit margin after expenses.

payment info

  • A 50% deposit is required on all mosaic tile design orders at the time the order is placed. There are no refunds if you change your mind. The balance is due upon shipment.

  • Loose trout/koi/lily pad orders are 100% at the time of the order is placed. They will not be shipped until paid in full.

  • Check, PayPal, credit cards, or money orders are accepted. You can leave your credit card info on our secure voicemail system at 423.259.8624.

  • NO payments are accepted over time — NO exceptions.

guarantee

Before ordering, please look at the pictures on multiple computers; colors vary from monitor to monitor and hand-held device to hand-held device.

We do not take returns on any mosaic orders All work is custom and sales final.

Loose fish tile returns are accepted, but you pay the return shipping and future shipping for replacements. There is a $5 re-stocking fee if you change your mind.

If any tiles are damaged during shipment, don't hesitate to contact us for replacement pieces. You MUST take pictures of the box, wrapping materials, and broken tiles so I can file an insurance claim. If you do not do this, I will not send replacements.

If something unique, like a mermaid, coral, etc breaks, I'll need a pencil/crayon rubbing of the edges of the tile to replicate it as close as possible.

With proper installation, your tiles should last for generations.

You can clean our tiles with any household cleaning sprays or liquids.

If a tile should become chipped by gouging the surface (a rock stuck in the sole of a shoe or dropping a heavy object on the surface), you can mix acrylic hobby paint, apply it to the tile with a small brush, let it dry, and dab a top coat of clear nail polish to hide the defect.

drawings of designs

If you are wanting a drawing of your finished design, there is a $200 up-charge that is paid prior to starting the tiles. I like to "work on the fly." My designs look much nicer when I have the freedom to be creative and not work "in a box."

installation info

Always use a professional installer with experience laying ceramic tiles. If you purchase our film-mounted tiles, any professional installer can install the tiles. You can probably do-it-yourself! Ask for references when selecting a professional installer.


If you would like to place an order at that time, click the email me links in the right column. There are instructions, as to what information I need, to get from you, to process your order, and for you to pay.

Most tiles ship the same day as payment.

I look forward to hearing from you!
