The biggest trend for 2014 isn’t subway tile or glass mosaics, it’s remodeling! Perhaps this increase in remodeling is because home values have dropped, so more homeowners are staying put and want to make their homes more comfortable. Maybe some homeowners want to invest in their current real estate to increase the value of their home. Or maybe shows like “Love It or List It” are inspiring people to create the home that they really want. Whatever the reason, remodeling is the trend for 2014.
According to the National Association of Home Builders the Remodeling Market Index is currently at an all time high. In other words, more people are remodeling their current homes rather than selling. It seems that Post-recession homeowners are finally loosening the grip on their wallets.
Northern California is no different from the rest of the nation. A study done in the Fall of 2013 says that 39% of Northern California residents are excited to start remodel projects which is up from 28% in 2010. Interestingly enough, the same study said that 46% were planning to DIY some of that same remodel.
“The San Joaquin Valley economy, which has improved over the past year to the point where it has nearly reached pre-recession levels, will continue to improve in 2014 and 2015, according to a report from Gökçe Soydemir, the Foster Farms endowed professor of business economics at California State University, Stanislaus.”

Mindy Hamilton, our showroom manager, shares with us the design trends in the Arizona Tile in Rancho Cordova, CA tile and slab store and how her staff goes the extra mile for their customers every time.
Tell us a little bit about your Arizona Tile branch and what sets you apart from other tile stores in your area.
I have heard on many occasions that what sets us apart is our level of customer service. The customer service in other tile stores is less then remarkable.
I also believe that we have done an amazing job with bringing in material that coincides with market trends and customer requests, as well as competitively priced. Before I had often heard that we were the most expensive, but now I see closing the sale as much easier.
What type of product trends have you noticed lately within your area?
Granite kitchen countertops, wood-looking tile, and I have noticed that customers are really drawn to Quartz counter tops. The more modern look is more appealing to customers over the tumbled/rustic look these days.
Has anyone in your store received an excellent customer service recommendation from any customers?
I constantly receive positive feedback regarding all the associates in the showrooms. They all work very hard to ensure that our customers are getting the best possible customer service and correct material information.
On Yelp, our very own, Lynn, received a wonderful review from Dee C.
“I was surprised at the reasonable prices and large selection. However, the customer service/designer (Lynn) was the best part of our experience at Arizona Tile. She was very knowledgable and helped make our project go smoothly and with excellent results (we do all the work ourselves). Highly recommend!!”
