Each of The Tile Shop's 109 stores feature more than 50 full-room tiled displays and the most knowledgeable sales staff in the industry who provide customers consistent guidance from project planning to product selection through installation. The Tile Shop also continues to make shopping easy by offering customers a six-month return policy on unused tile and no restocking fee.

"This is an exciting year for us. It's incredible to reflect on how our original foundation made up of our product, our people, our design and one-of-a kind showroom environment, continue to be the key cornerstones that separate us from today's traditional tile shopping experience," said Chris Homeister, Chief Executive Officer. "Not only are we celebrating a company milestone, we are celebrating our customers and their continued desire to explore and create with a newly expanded product offering."

A sampling of the 100 new products includes:

  • Arte Gris: Rooted in inspiration from stamped concrete, this porcelain tile provides a stylish twist on the industrial design trend, adding a modern ambiance to floors or walls. It embodies the popular color grey, and comes in six distinct patterns with a texture-like appearance. Each packaged box of Arte Gris tile includes a unique blend of patterns, so no two projects will look exactly alike.
  • Brushed Copper Rounds: Upgrade your look with brushed copper penny mosaic tile to bring texture and richness to your home. This metal penny mosaic tile features a brushed texture in varying shades of copper that bring character to your bathroom or kitchen space.
  • Camelot Avalon and Excalibur: These large format hexagon patterned porcelain floor tiles offer a warm variance in tone and rustic appeal that bring geometric shapes to life. The vintage style in a variety of auburn hues with fossil patterns intermingled throughout the pieces creates an old world, custom feel to any home.
  • Décor Tiziano: The global influences rooted in these tiles will make any home fit for the Paris runways. This patterned tile embodies the American classic color palette of blue and brown. The artistic, water brushed, painted feel embraces today's trending geometric patterns. Add in the fun of Tiziano graphic 8 x 8 inch tiles to any space to bring it to life. The striking patchwork and geometric look also pairs well with natural stone.
  • Statuario Matt: This porcelain tile mimics the feel of white marble, providing cool grey tones that glide over the matte white surface. Add a touch of class with Statuario Matt, which provides a neutral background that you can accent with your favorite colors.
  • Vintage Faux Wood: This faux wood porcelain tile comes multi-toned with rustic textures. Perfect for anyone who wants a less refined, more natural wood look with the durability and reliability of porcelain tile.
