We are a locally owned and operated tile flooring retailer that is known for its superior customer service. Our showroom in Amarillo, Texas, features carpet, hardwood, laminate, and vinyl flooring as well as a variety of tile made of several different materials.

Natural stone  

Natural stone tile flooring options include travertine, slate, marble, granite, and limestone. When comparing different products, consider how porous and slippery the stone is. Also, check to see if a grading system is used to rate the stone's quality. Every stone floor is unique since each stone is one of a kind. Most stone is porous so floors must be sealed every four to five years.

Ceramic and porcelain

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are made of clay and other natural materials. Because of the way it is fired in the kiln, porcelain is much denser and harder than ceramic. That makes porcelain more impervious to moisture than ceramic. When shopping for porcelain flooring, look for a rating of Grade III or Grade IV. Both ceramic and porcelain tile flooring can last a lifetime.


Vinyl tile provides a cushioned floor surface that is resilient and durable. Most often, the base layer is made of fiberglass. The fiberglass material is topped with a design layer that is protected by a stain, scratch, and water-resistant wear layer. The price of the tile is usually determined by its thickness. Look for a product that is backed by a 15-year warranty.
