I ordered samples of the Carrara marble basketweave. I was very impressed with the quality and feel of the tile. We didn't end up using it though due to a change of plans, but am thinking about it for a future project. Hope this helps.

I ordered from them and I have the say that the quality of the samples was better than the marble in my order. I suppose its fine, but you get what you pay for. Its nothing special. Im kicking myself for not buying it from WZ on sale when I had the chance. Ordering and shipping went smoothly.

I had pretty much the exact same experience as designnov. The samples were beautiful. The marble in the order, supposedly from the exact same set of marble, wasn't quite as nice. Not so bad I quite felt like I could complain, since after all, marble is a natural product and you can't expect every tile to be exactly the same, but still. Let's put it this way, if, in fact the samples really are from the same batch or run or whatever it's called as the stuff they send, then I think they go through pretty carefully and pull the prettiest to use as samples.

I agree that ordering, shipping and any other dealings with the company went just fine.

So I have 2 bathroom floors that are ok and very reasonably priced, just not quite as nice as I was hoping. I will say that the quality difference is much more noticeable in the bathroom where I did big 12x12 tiles than in the bathroom where I have much smaller tiles in a herringbone pattern.

Thank you for the feedback. The pricing is very attractive, however, i am tired of being disappointed and shall stick with my local dealer.

I got my bathroom floor tile from Builder's Depot Direct. Not sure if it's the same place, but I was extremely happy with the quality and price. I got the 1 inch hex marble for $10.95 a sf. I dealt with Dave and he was so helpful and answered all my questions I had promptly by email.

Everything was packaged perfectly and not one piece was chipped or broken.

I am not totally done with the bath yet, but here are a couple of shots.
