Ann Sacks tile

skny0104March 14, 2014

I was just looking at some Ann Sacks tile on the web and when I called to inquire it was a lot more than I thought. I was looking in the basics section Trend-glass, and their website indicated they are priced "starting" at $8/sf, but when I got a quote back from SP, it was almost $19/SF (GULP). I think their tile is nice, but am sure I could find something similar at local tile store for less (with better CS). I was wondering though if I ordered through a designer or contractor, what the trade discount would be and if that would be the same regardless of how much business they do. I am tempted to just forget it and deal with the much nicer local tile place (from a CS) standpoint. Does anyone know how much the Savoy subway tiles are? Thanks

I doubt that ordering through a designer is going to improve the economics in any significant way. Ann Sacks has beautiful tile, but I think it's pretty easy to find stuff that's similar for less money elsewhere.

I just noticed this post and thought I would comment. We purchased some Ann Sacks tile just last week through our builder, since he passes any trade discount on to us and doesn't uncharge. The tile we selected was from the Savoy line. He got us 20% off, which saved us quite a bit of money.

Many contractors around here do the same thing (pass their discounts on to customers).

Personally, I'm in love with Tabarka tile. Specifically, the grey patterned arabesque shaped tiles in the Metro line.

I'm going to bite the bullet and pay the price, though I will pair them with something else very basic and use the "fancy stuff" in very visible places.
