Daltile, the country’s leading manufacturer and distributor of ceramic tile and natural stone, recently revamped their entire Indianapolis showroom. It has been transformed into a bright gallery that shows off their spectacular products in all their glory. Modeled after the corporate offices in Daltile’s larger cities like Chicago and Dallas, the walls are lined with a wide array of options.
“Now when people come in, they get a great visual of how things look,” says Jenn Wilson, Indy’s Daltile showroom designer.
Rather than selection boards, the gallery displays pre-grouted, pre-made panel selection boards, enabling clients to see exactly how the tile will look on their wall or floor. In addition, on the side of each of those panels is a listing of the available colors in that tile line. There’s also a library wall so clients can lay pieces out to get a better idea of the size and style.
“Daltile is revamping all 250 of their sales service centers across the country, but we are lucky enough to be one of the first in the Midwest to benefit from the redesign,” says Wilson. “Everybody from designers to architects to builders are amazed with the quality of the showroom.”
Daltile, who partners with dealers, contractors, and commercial customers, is eager to host quarterly events in their new showroom, including a spring open house and BBQ.
“We’ve had a tough time displaying all of our products in the past,” says Wilson. “Now we’re not limited on space. We love it!”
