Your retail establishment is the result of your careful planning and investment. Sometimes, that planning and investment need to be limited by your finances, but lack of funds doesn’t have to limit your choice of flooring to get the look you want for your store.
Porcelain and ceramic tile can be manufactured in many different looks, allowing a more expensive feel to your space. Natural stone floor tiles might be out of your price range, but porcelain stone-look tiles could be perfect. There are even porcelain and ceramic floor tiles that look like wood but lack all the high maintenance wood would require.
The flooring you choose will have a direct effect on the mood of your customer. Studies have even shown that flooring can affect sales, so this isn’t a thing to ignore. Fortunately, with the ability to find high quality commercial tile flooring at Éco Dépôt, you can also find the best value for your investment.

Bathrooms are great places for tile. A tiled floor in the bathroom can allow for a small radiant heating mat beneath it, giving bare feet luxurious comfort while being waterproof. Tiled walls are logical extensions of the practical assets of tiled floors because you can add customized features here, too.
Before you start your bathroom tile project, think about how the space will be used every day. You might even want to take a look at your current bathroom use to analyze the products your household likes to keep at hand.
Does everybody have their own particular type of hair & body products? Are there a lot of assorted bottles and items in your shower or bathtub space? Where do the grooming things around the sink go? Is all this stuff getting in the way of getting clean?
Tiled walls in the bathroom have a huge advantage over all other types of wall because you can put waterproof ledges and niches where you need them. They need to be planned beforehand, but this is easy to do at the beginning of your tile project. A shower could have a long niche for each user, sized to hold their favorite products. A sink or tub could have a handy ledge for small items and bath toys. All this convenience is clad in the same waterproof tile of the walls and the effect is one that you will appreciate for years.
When you come into our Montreal showroom to look at bathroom tile for your project, talk to one of our expert assistants about what is involved in putting a few ledges or niches into the wall at the same time. You will be pleased to see that this is an easy addition if done during the initial framing. All you need to do is decide where you need it done, how many you want, and what size they should be. It costs pennies more, adds considerable value to your home, and keeps all that stuff out of the way.
Granite tile is a wonderful product. It lasts forever (look how long the stone has been around already!), and it has such enduring qualities that sometimes you get tired of the look while the surface still looks great. There’s an answer to this problem, and it is possible because of the nature of granite.
If you take a magnifying glass to examine your tile in good lighting, you will see that the stone has many flecks of different colors making up the overall color you see. Try an experiment: pick a few of those underlying hues to make up a few sample boards to lay next to your tile. Voilà! It will instantly look a little different because the new color has “pulled out” similar tones from the stone.
If you had grey walls before, see what blues or pinks will do. Brown granite can have any color flecks up close because brown is a mix of all colors, so let your imagination fly. Sometimes a refreshing change of countertop accessories is all you need to create a new look in a kitchen because those new canisters make the granite countertop look new, too. Granite floor tiles are the foundation of many possibilities for a room’s decor because the floor looks good with it all.
Sometimes people are afraid to put granite tiles in their home because they might get tired of them. But the truth is, you don’t have to change the tile to change the room. Come to the Éco Dépôt Céramique and bring your magnifying glass — examine the granite tile flooring in our showrooms and see all the color flecks this natural stone can hold. You will be inspired!
