Whenever my clients need tile I go to Art Tile on Roosevelt, for many reasons. First of all the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Secondly they have weeded out the crap available and only carry the tile worth looking at in Seattle without having to go down south to all the tile manufacturers showrooms. Thirdly, yes they have a little markup vs going to the manufacturers but the time you will spend picking is shortened drastically because of their good displays. Also their salespeople are tile installers which means they actually know what they are talking about when they recommend something. So needless to say, I use them all the time and have had great success for my clients and really enjoy the people that work there.
