Where do you find inspiration for your design projects?

It really depends on the project and the input from the client. If the client is looking for more of a resort style and formal pool then we will look at some of the finest hotels around the world for inspiration. Homeowners want to feel like they are vacationing in their own yard and so we want to provide that image and feeling for them. If a client prefers a more natural look, then we will turn to mother nature. She is obviously going to provide the most unique images and inspiration.

What is your process with your client?

We begin the process with an initial client meeting and interview. We will take the information and client feedback from the interview, bring it back to the office and start the design process. Once the design has evolved we prepare a final design presentation for the client where we offer a 3D design model to help the client visualize the potential of their yard. Once the client is excited with the design we move towards construction contracts and start building.

How do you choose your materials?

There are three main factors when it comes to choosing materials, function, style and budget. We want to offer customers a wide variety of material choices that will fit the style of the project and within the their budget. For example some designs will call for formal lines so we select stone or tile that accentuates the formality of the design. The trick is to balance all three and not have to sacrifice the integrity of the design.

What is the most important quality when you are looking for tile?

We are always looking for new and exciting tile line. We always want to be on the cutting edge of design, and finding unique tile products always keeps us one step ahead. Consistency in the products is also very important to us. We appreciate uniformity and require high manufacturing standards. We also look for a company that stands behind the product they put out. We believe in business partnership, so we want a relationship with a vendor whom we can trust should issues arise.

What is your favorite thing about working with Oceanside Glasstile?

We enjoy working with Oceanside Glasstile because of the quality of the products they put out, the dedicated support staff of the company, and the creativity of the design team. With our violin pool project we worked hand in hand with Oceanside Glasstile for hours on end to create the gradient blend we needed. Honestly, we essentially tortured their design staff because we wanted to the tile to look a very specific way. We can’t say enough about how phenomenal it was working with OGT because they understood our passion for the project and matched us every step of the way. We had to be very demanding for that particular project and Oceanside Glasstile was willing to help us in anyway they could, and the result of the finished product is wonderful.
