Tile Showroom-Contractor Connection- The Tile Shop: Barry Seals

The Tile Shop- my go-to tile showroom

I am a creature of habit. I make fun of my dad for it, but to be honest I am just as guilty...and for good reason.

I source a lot of different types of fixtures, finishes, furniture, etc. To be able to rely on showrooms for things like free samples, trade discounts (that I can pass a long to clients), free shipping, help with returns and replacements makes my job so much easier.

I worked at The Tile Shop Plymouth right before starting Pinnacle Interior Designs. I had done a few projects with a college friend while working there, but I gained confidence and realized I was really good at bringing spaces to life.

I know their products, settling materials, pricing, and have great service! With new products coming out constantly I have only had a few instances in the last 13 years where we had to source somewhere else.

The Tile Shop is my go-to tile showroom. With the corporate location being in Plymouth I have access to the best vignettes, turn around time, samples, and help (thanks to Barry).

The Tile Shop has 13 total sales staff members at the Plymouth location. This location provides sales and design services for all things tile at our store. Barry has been in sales since he was 16 and was referred by a close friend in 2008 to The Tile Shop. “I used to work with Jeanna at the Shop for a few years until she left and started her own business.”

Q- Why do you use an Interior Designer? Why Pinnacle Interior Designs? A- I think it makes it easier for some clients to have a person that can make the decisions for them, it's important to have someone in place that can have a vision for the space they are working on.

A- dwell magazine is my inspiration, clean, modern, minimal design are my favorites. Q- What advice would you give concerning #remodeling? A- Give yourself plenty of time to let things come together, don't overthink it.

Q- What is your favorite part of your job? A - Every day presents a new challenge and it keeps you engaged.

Q- Describe your business only using movie titles:) A- 'Heat' because the selections and designs are 🔥
