Bountiful 30,000-square-foot Staten Island warehouse, showroom offers very finest in shower systems, bath furniture, therapeutic home spas and more

Mike Musillo, vice president of Richmond Tile & Bath, and Anthony S. Vanario, general manager, look over a display of Sant‟Agostino KRYSTAL three-dimensional tiles in their Staten Island, N.Y. showroom.

Looking into the KRYSTAL three-dimensional tiles, beyond the shine of the surface, is like exploring various depths of an ocean.

It pays for homeowners and construction professionals to think outside the big box, according to industry experts at Richmond Tile & Bath.

The Staten Island, N.Y.-based retailer/wholesaler has been featuring top manufacturers, along with cutting-edge technology and designs since opening in 1973. That’s five years longer than Home Depot has been in existence and eight U.S. presidents ago.

“Innovative products have continually fortified our growth in the face of ‘big-box’ competitors and economic downturns,” said Anthony S. Vanario, general manager of Richmond Tile & Bath. “But the foundation of our success is history of trust and dependability we’ve established with our suppliers and customers. We’ve accomplished this for nearly 40 years – not as a corporate giant, but as a reliable third-generation family business.”

The track record has attracted unprecedented opportunities.

Most recently, Richmond Tile & Bath accepted an offer to become the area’s exclusive dealer for HardieBacker® ProGrid™ Cement Board for Wet Areas.

“The effectiveness provided by this new product from James Hardie is second only to Wedi® backboards,” said Mike Musillo, vice president of Richmond Tile & Bath. “The big-box stores in our region don’t have the privilege of carrying HardieBacker® ProGrid™, which is attractively priced at 40 percent below Wedi’s version.”

Better yet, Richmond Tile & Bath’s upscale products, such as StarQuartz® Urethane Grouts, can be combined with HardieBacker® ProGrid™ to provide an effective lower-cost moisture barrier.

Many homeowners, builders, architects, commercial developers and specifiers will likely want to take advantage of the value provided by these and other products at Richmond Tile & Bath’s 30,000-square-foot warehouse and showroom location.

Those in the market for tile, for example, should explore KRYSTAL, Richmond Tile & Bath’s latest addition to the Sant’Agostino porcelain collection.

These unique tiles are created with natural-looking hues, tones and textures created within multiple layers of porcelain.

“Looking into the KRYSTAL three-dimensional tiles, beyond the shine of the surface, is like exploring various depths of an ocean,” Vanario said.
