Best place to get tile in Orange County CA?
I'm wondering if any locals (Southern CA) have any favorite place where they get tile. I don't mind home depot but their selection is limited, for example, I wanted non porcelain tile for my kitchen back splash, and their selection was pitiful.
I'm looking for a place with much more choice and good pricing. I've heard on State College blvd in Anaheim CA there are a whole bunch of tile warehouses. I want to tile a shower stall and I have several more projects on the back burner.

go through a tile supplier, the issue with buying through big box stores is that they buy large lots of a specific tile when its gone its gone..

im the moderator over at this old house forums and i dont know how many times that topic has come up " bought maui 12x12 tiles from hd and need more...." they need to replace tile but cant get them... through a tile supplier they can either get the same one or something almost identical to it for you if you ever have issues

Hmm, I did not know you could buy direct from supplier. I will look into that. The only problem I can see off the bat is, would a supplier sell in such small quantities as one shower stall?

you have to go through a showroom, they either have what you want in stock or at a warehouse which they send out to you.

95% of the tile that goes into the homes i work on have tile come from such places
