There is a difference between doing a job and doing a job well. It is easy to do sloppy work, or to complete a job without thinking about aesthetics. Spending a little more time on a project in the beginning, will yield a more pleasing outcome.
The following photos are from a bathroom remodel in Naperville. My tiler was careful to mix the tiles to give them an overall organic look. He is expert in his craft and takes the time to make sure that patterns and colors blend well. It would be faster to pull one tile after another from the box. But our customer will have to live with the results for the next 20 plus years. Details count.
