As a person who generally doesn’t like to expend too many brain cells on décor decisions, I am amazed that Heather still asks me to come along on these excursions. Be that as it may, armed with a list of square footage to be covered, Heather and I traipsed off to CERAMIC TILE ZONE in Ajax to select the “look” for Susan’s digs.

Fortunately, we were met by an angel of ceramic tile mercy, Stacey, who guided us to the appropriate part of the showroom. After we had narrowed the selection to a top 3, Stacey’s expertise proved invaluable. She explained what colour schemes would work with each of our choices and armed with that info, we made our final selection. We were in and out in 45 minutes--in my book, a real bonus.
