What we covered is a vital cog in understanding the Sonoma Tilemakers machine, especially why it’s a steal pricewise.
So you should know by now that Sonoma Tilemakers is as hands-on with their tile as possible. The energy Sonoma exerts to craft its tile certainly doesn’t underwhelm, and along with the time and care they devote to the tile-making process, it’s a huge reason why we feel all of Sonoma’s products are a bargain. We feel so strongly about this that we made it our number two reason why we love Sonoma Tilemakers (and why you should, too). Keep reading to see why the tile is a big bang for your buck.
It’s a bargain
Let’s start with glazes. See the ingredients below? Sonoma uses them to create tile glazes by hand. Simple, right? Well, not exactly. Unlike food, there isn’t a set-in-stone recipe for tile glazes. Because of that, glaze colors are hard to predict.
Indeed, Sonoma told us they spend quite some time experimenting with glaze colors and formulas, and it’s difficult to perfect the glaze without at least a few do-overs. The old adage “time is money” is true here – it’s not cheap to experiment with glazes over and over again.
There’s about eight scoops of the chemical ingredients below in each glaze mix; it can be any type of combination (all zinc oxide, for example, or two zinc oxide, one talc, one whiting, etc.)
Next week, we’ll unveil the third reason why you should love Sonoma Tilemakers as much as we do. While you wait, feel free to schedule an appointment with one of our designers by clicking here. They’ll show you the best Sonoma Tilemakers has to offer and what will work best in your home!
