The advent of Pinterest and HGTV has turned many of us into home design lovers. But anyone who has taken the initiative to turn that reclaimed barn door or total kitchen renovation into a reality knows that the implementation isn’t always as dreamy as it looks on cable. Tony Sementi of Tile by Tony offers his clients the opportunity to achieve that big T.V. reveal without all the drama.
Completing a remodel is more about contracting, scheduling, and sequencing than simply checking out tile samples, and the more thorough a remodel, the more downtime that area of the home will experience.
Tony’s team does it all, from framing to sheetrock to creating their own cabinetry.
“We can’t all afford to have HGTV experts come in, so we need a local partner to offer that kind of creative quality,” he explained.
While Tony’s craft began with a focus on tile, it quickly became apparent that the nature of the process often led to a complete remodel, something he realized he had a natural aptitude for after building houses with his own father in his younger years. These days, Tony’s team of gifted craftsmen handles almost every aspect of a home remodel.
So how do you take your dreams of granite countertops and heated floors to the next level? Tony says you start by setting up a time for him to come out to your home. He will assess your needs, find out what you want to achieve, and come up with suggestions. His visit will end with an estimate, but it will also give you a solid direction and a plan of action.
Next, he will work with you to select the materials. Tony’s store offers an impressive selection of cutting edge materials. Some of the more remarkable products include tile that offers the illusion of wood flooring. Homeowners get the beauty of hardwood floors, but the ability to withstand the scratching of their 120-lb. mastiff or constant foot traffic of a growing family.
Tony is also up to date on other design trends, including authentic barn wood plank walls and flooring, heated floors, a breathtaking array of glass or glass-and-stone mosaic tiles, stainless steel countertops, gorgeous graphic tile and synthetic granite. He carries products from vendors with whom he has maintained partnerships over many decades.
When a project commences, Tony visits each site every day, overseeing every aspect of a project. Back at the store, his home team handles communication, maintaining constant contact with homeowners.
The seasoned craftsman lives by an admirable creed: “Always deliver more than people expect. People know we’re going to do good work, but we like to blow them away.”
To get started on your remodel or check out some of the latest design trends in real life, stop by Tony’s store in Catoosa.
