Beautiful glass. Hakatai is not exclusive to the trade, but they are largely unknown to the typical retail customer. We came across Hakatai Tile when searching online for glass tile two years ago and were impressed with the sheer beauty of their installations. Since then we have had two clients use Hakatai tile and swear by it...
Many tile shops will sell you a wide range of tiles, but Hakatai sells only glass tile.
We have have found them prompt and friendly. They are not so large that you will be overwhelmed and the photographs of what people have done with their tiles is inspiring.
If you are doing glass tiles in your apartment, we recommed giving them a call for a price quote and trying them out. Any store you go to in your neighborhood will be shipping the tiles you order in anyway, so there is no reason not to trust someone at a long distance when it comes to tiles.
