Laid Back Sweet Georgia Brown Tile from Crossville Fits this Musician’s Lifestyle


JerryCohen-001 Laid Back Sweet Georgia Brown Tile from Crossville Fits this Musician’s LifestyleWhen Jerry Cohen moved from Boynton Beach to his new home in Port St. Lucie, he had some remodeling to do. The previous owner had carpetin the bedrooms with tile in the rest of the house. He wanted all tile throughout the home. As a musician, Jerry toured with the Jon Bon Jovi band and his laid-back attitude is reflected in his choice of tileflooring. He liked the look of wood but did not want the maintenance of real wood or the look or feel of laminate flooring.

“I had some friends who recommended D&B Tile as well as a family friend who works there, so the decision was easy for me. When I told my friend that I had very specific ideas to fill, he said ‘we have everything you need.’ And he wasn’t kidding.

“I wanted somewhat of a distressed look rather than the high-sheen of some tiles. After a few minutes with the salesperson at the Port St. Lucie store, he knew exactly what I needed and led me to the Crossville display and the Sweet Georgia Brown line. It was a perfect fit for my home. I had no idea that porcelain tile could have this type of look and feel that gives me everything I want in a wood floor but without the maintenance.”

JerryCohen-003 Laid Back Sweet Georgia Brown Tile from Crossville Fits this Musician’s Lifestyle“The installer was Ron Barnett. He was recommended by D&B Tile and did an excellent job. Everything is seamless and matches perfectly. There was a nasty carpet on the floors that had to be removed. He also put in new baseboards throughout the rest of the house.”

The line’s five colors—Sidecar, Zoot Suit, Sweet Georgia Brown, Silver Screen and Bank Roll—mimic the look of stained timber in a range of tones. The plank sizes, available in 6×36, 8×36 and 12×36, enhance the wood-like effect. Work with a single shade and size for a time-honored, traditional style, or mix colors and sizes for a custom installation that gives tradition a twist.
