Quality, Innovation and Design at Crossville Tile & Stone

By Elizabeth R. Elstien

With showrooms located throughout the Southeast and South Central United States, Crossville Tile & Stone in Spring is an all-encompassing source for all types of tile and leading setting materials for the professional installer or do-it-yourselfer. A division of Crossville Inc. out of Tennessee (a manufacturer of "beautifully sustainable tile solutions since 1986"), Crossville Tile & Stone is the place to go to purchase ceramic and porcelain tile, mosaics, glass, metals and natural stone for your next remodeling project.

Marketing Manager Wendy Stine tells us, "We are proud to represent a very diverse range of tile products from manufacturers who are leading the industry in quality, innovation and design. Notable innovations include High-Definition Technology which creates extremely realistic patterns and textures (slates, marbles, travertines, but in a porcelain tile), to large-format (32-inch square) tile and even Laminam by Crossville ® (porcelain tile panels) available in sizes of 39.4 by 118.1 millimeters (approximately 3 by 10 feet) to different shapes (like a 24- by 26-inch hexagon). Unlike one brand, we are able to bring the very best of each manufacturer to our customers."

Crossville Inc. has two industry innovations, which can be found at Crossville Tile & Stone. First, they offer a Hydrotect finish on certain tile types, which is an invisible coating that protects from nasty microbes, bacteria and dirt. Second, explains Stine, is a "proprietary recycling process to turn fired tile back into the ceramic powder used in the manufacturing of new tile porcelain enabling the company to recycle 10s of millions of pounds of porcelain waste and maintain net waste consumption at their [Crossville Inc.] plant since 2012."

Whether you are working on a commercial or retail build, renovation or remodel, Crossville Tile & Stone has experienced design consultants to help you choose just the right tile size, shape, color and material. Use their online Product Finder tool to help you narrow down your tile selection prior to coming into the showroom.

Like fashion, tile styles change throughout the years. Wood-like tile is increasing in popularity. "Whites and grays are now the new beige and prevalent across the majority of our lines," explains Stine. "Linear looks are very hot in ceramics, porcelain and glass (especially for backsplashes) and large-format tiles of 12 by 24 inches are being used more and more in showers."

To make your renovation project less overwhelming, Stine has some tips. First, find your design style (e.g., modern, traditional, coastal). She recommends starting with "design magazines, online design sites, even touring model homes to put together a folder of photos and printed or clipped-out pictures." You can even view their online Inspiration Galleries for room insight.

Next, Stine continues, "Start to look for the products that are going to match that style." Then, check out their online Product Finder and head to their tile showroom with your choice of cabinet finishes/colors, countertop samples, and paint colors so their design consultants can help complement your color selections. It's just that easy to get stunning design results with the aid of Crossville Tile & Stone.
