8 FIVE 0 is a tile design studio and was created on the belief that everyone deserves beautiful tile.

All tile design is based on what we believe are four basic principles. A customer’s personal style, how a tile will fit in any given space, the longevity of the design, and budget. At 8 FIVE 0 we take the time to get to know our customers, their spaces, and the tile needed to complete their project, with the theory that no matter what the budget, our customers should receive the time and expertise it takes to make their space look and feel beautiful.
