Tile comes in a never-ending pallet of colors, patterns, textures, and materials. It's easy to clean, long-lived, and affordable even for tight remodeling budgets.
Today's baked-in finishes came in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and designs from old word the most contemporary of looks. Take a new look at a proven favorite at STAR.
STAR carries tiles cut from a variety of stone types including sandstone, granite, slate, and marble.
Certified porcelain tile is quickly becoming the gold standard in tile. Porcelain is a clay-based tile that has been baked longer and hotter and is much stronger than ceramic tile. Being a stronger tile, it is less prone to damage.
Molded from clay, ceramic tiles offer a wide variety of styles, shapes, and colors at affordable prices.
