Please go to our new link for Quality Tile.
We have heard that Quality Tile is THE place to purchase tile at a steep discount. It's not only cheaper than the boutiques on 5th avenue, it's also cheaper than Home Depot.
They'll quote prices on the phone as long as you know exactly what you want, preferably with manufacturer's name and item number, but it's worth the trip up there to see what you can find.
Matt says: Great recommendation! I made the trip up from Manhattan yesterday. They seemed understaffed and slightly disorganized, but the people I talked to were friendly, helpful, and willing to negotiate on price. They even offer free delivery if the order is big enough.
Quality Tile sells ceramic, tile marble and granite, so if you want to cut down the cost of redoing your bathroom or kitchen or WHATEVER, check them out. They stock many companies, and if they don't have it, they say they will get it for you.
