What Makes us Different

The tile industry is ever-changing and we take tremendous pride in staying true to what brought our showroom to Kansas City dating back to the late 1970’s. The ability to bring handmade ceramic tiles made by artisans is a tried and true art form that cannot be duplicated by machines in big factories. The process that is required to make ceramic tiles is not unlike that of a bakery. Each piece is molded, glazed and baked in a kiln until it reaches completion. Based out of Portland, Oregon, Pratt and Larson is one the oldest, finest ceramic companies that we’ve come to know and love over the years and we are proud to be one of their dealers. If you have ever wondered why it takes so long for a custom order and why these tiles are more expensive than most, we share these videos below, provided by Pratt and Larson.
