Bullnose Tile & Stone Showroom

W.10th Vancouver

Our Story

Bullnose Tile & Stone's origins started back in 1992 on 4390 West 10th Avenue in Vancouver by husband and wife team, Steve and Laura Weiss. Throughout the years, they have gathered a brilliant collection of tile by working directly with manufacturers and artisans to produce tiles made to Bullnose specifications. This then led to a creation of an array of glaze colours that were carefully developed by Bullnose, specifically for western Canada. Highlighting colourful, handcrafted, and environmentally friendly products were the focus for their collections and because of it, Bullnose Tile offers a diverse range of products from responsible companies. 

After almost a quarter of a century selling artisan tiles and designing countless spaces, original owners Steve and Laura Weiss decided to enter retirement, passing on their torch to Joel and Catherine Christensen, owners of Mosaic Stoneworks Ltd. Steve and Laura will be missed by their former customers but their hand in building such a reputable company will always be present.

Bullnose Tile & Stone Showroom

 

A new chapter

In the spring of 2016, Bullnose Tile and Stone moved to a new location. The new larger showroom and warehouse space has been combined into one for customer convenience and is now located in Coquitlam.  Yes we know, the new location is not as nearly as charming as the original store, but we promise to carry all the unique and amazing collections plus more.  

Current proprietors, (husband and wife team), Joel and  Catherine Christensen, value the importance of being committed to maintaining Bullnose Tile's reputation in selling superb handcrafted items, while offering the best service possible.   

We are unique

It is important for Bullnose Tile & Stone to offer customers a variety of colour and unique designs to choose from and that is exactly what we do.  In our show room, colourful, textural, handcrafted tile is found everywhere, hence our moto, "Rebelling against Monotony". You won't find factory tiles made for the masses here, but what you will find are hand crafted, perfectly imperfect stand-out products.  

Earth friendly

Bullnose Tile is respectful of our environment as we are to providing brilliantly unique tiles to our customers. We make a point in purchasing our tiles from earth conscious, companies that carry the same values for honoring our planet as we do. By recycling our cardboard, paper products, plastics, packaging materials we try to do our part in caring for our amazing planet.  We only have one earth, so we continue to treat it with respect.

Shipping 

We ship to most places in North America.  Orders are shipped by package service (UPS, DHL, Diamond...) or a freight carrier depending on weight and product type. Shipping estimates will be quoted at the time of order and may be modified if the actual shipping cost varies upon the final shipment.   If you live in a restricted area or in an area where delivery is challenging, please call and speak with Grant, our shipping manager and he will be happy to help you out.

Customer Returns

Full, unopened, undamaged boxes of returned merchandise are gladly accepted within 30 days from the date of purchase/pick up.  There is a re-stocking fee of 25% due to handling charges.  When product is returned, because we have to unpackage, check, repackage and restock, due to the fragile nature of handmade tiles, we also have to make up for damaged goods.  Unfortunately, we do not accept returns on any clearance items, discontinued, non-stocking items or custom colour  orders.  Thank you.

Membership

We are a Bronze member of the Tile, Terrazo and Marble Association of Canada and also a proud A+ member of the Better Business Bureau.
