Customer Testimonials

It was truly a pleasure to work with Stefano and Tile & Stone Design Center of Plano! Stefano spent a great amount of time with us explaining the process and products, possibilities and cost, timing and expectations. Once we made a decision and signed on the dotted line, the job started on time and finished 3 days early–how often does that happen? As the job progressed, Jim and I made additions and changes which Stefano and his team accommodated and occasionally talked us out of for definitely the right reasons. The cost was reasonable–we did shop around quite a bit–and found that Tile and Stone Design Center had what we wanted at a cost that fit our budget. We put in brand new soft close cabinets and drawers, beautiful granite counter tops, a new sink and plumbing. The house was always swept clean when we got home and workers showed up and left on time. Stefano was patient and understanding in his explanations and timely in letting us know what cost changes would or would not be involved. This was a pleasant experience–as pleasant as it can be to have your kitchen torn up for 10 days–and we will definitely pass on our experience to anyone who wishes to take on updating their home. Thanks, Stefano! We’ll be in touch about some bathrooms in the future!

We hired Stefano and team at Tile & Stone Design Center to remodel our master bathroom at the recommendation from a neighbor who had completed multiple projects with him.
The initial discussion held in our bathroom with Stefano was an exciting exploration of what could be. We didn’t know it was possible to reverse the location of our tub and shower to get both the expanded shower we requested and a jetted tub. Previous contractors didn’t give us much in the way of choices or help us formulate our vision of a “spa” like Stefano did.
It was actually fun to select the stone and granite and watch the stone & granite combinations come to life. Although the shower glass and framed mirrors were delayed due to suppliers, in the end the room is everything we wanted and more.
Stefano and Adolfo were very professional, courteous, and precise. The extra care and time given to cover the stairs leading to the master bath with plastic during the initial project of demolition was a pleasant surprise and exceeded our expectations. We would recommend Stefano and his team without a doubt!

We started this project knowing we wanted to update/remodel two bathrooms, maybe three and that was about as much of a plan as we had. The plan was to get three quotes and make a decision. Once we met Stefano from Tile & Stone Design Center the plan changed. We didn’t get any other quotes because he made such a great first impression. The work that followed surpassed our expectations. Stefano was professional but genuine, super patient, and very open with expectations and suggestions. Halfway through the project when he would ask how we wanted something to look our answer became, “Whatever you think, you’re the expert” and he never disappointed. We highly recommend this company and working with Stefano. If we decide to update the other bathrooms, kitchen or anything else he will be our first call.


We contracted T&SDC to remodel our kitchen, including granite countertops, backsplash, refinished cabinets and new lighting. We tried getting bids for all of the work individually, but it was a blessing for Stefano, John and team to oversee the entire project. The process was extremely smooth, communication was frequent and clear, and the end result was beyond our expectations. T&SDC’s team is professional in every sense of the word. The cabinet refinishing (by David) especially turned out great. Well done!


Let me start by saying the crew at T&SDC is a pleasure to work with. Stefano has established a great team and all of my dealings were fun and professional.

I took on the challenge of renovating two bathrooms, a kitchen and major improvements throughout my house, including two new (amazing) stone fireplaces. Most of the work was concurrent, my choice, which means Stefano was as much my therapist as my contractor. Trust me, he’s very good a both!

From the design phase through completion, promises were kept, timelines met and, of course, the final product exceeded my expectations. I don’t claim to be super creative when it comes to home design, but Stefano knew when to follow and when to lead and he originated a number of great design additions and changes that I get to brag about now. Don’t worry Stefano, credit where credit is due!!

Thank you T&SDC for a great project!!!

My husband and I contracted with Tile & Stone Design Center two years ago to remodel our master bath. We worked together using some of our ideas and Stefano’s suggestions, and it is absolutely beautiful and everything I could have hoped for. Stefano has a wonderful, very diplomatic way of steering you away from possible bad ideas with a simple, “Welll…” Thank you for that, Stefano. So we came back to him a couple of months ago to redo our guest bath, and once again, it is absolutely gorgeous. I love to just stand in the doorway and admire it. And once again, it was pretty much a collaboration of my thoughts and his suggestions. This second time I found a picture on houzz, and we started from there, not exactly copying the picture, but more using it as a guide. There were things in the picture Stefano spotted right away that I didn’t even notice, such as a frameless slider. I just knew it was a picture I really liked and thought could work in our bath. Stefano suggested a solar tube, and the light it adds just makes the room stunning. I could not be more pleased. He has great guys who work with him doing the paint, tile and installation. They are very considerate and also exceptionally hard workers. And as with any project, there were a few minor problems with the master bath, but Stefano had a workman out there immediately every time we pointed something out. He was there every morning to check on the work and to let my husband know what was coming next and when we could expect completion. Stefano is every bit the professional one would hope for in a remodel of any kind.

Now that we are done we wanted to say thank you for a well executed project.

I know that we have to rank up there with some of your most demanding and picky customers,
but you guys always responded professionally and in a couple of instances invested a lot of time discussing options
and advising. The day we picked out the different tiles and stones and the day we had to look at options for moving the tub come to mind.

We also appreciate how regularly Stefano would stop by to check on progress and to make sure the work
was progressing according to plan and to his standards.

With all projects like this, it is inevitable that there will be challenges, but how you address them and the final outcome is what is important. We are very pleased with the final product and are pleased to recommend you to our friends. Also, feel free to post this email on your site.

Stefano and Sharron went out of their way to make us happy and completely satisfied during this update on our counter tops and back splash. They were able to offer some great ideas based on their years and experience in the business. The crew (workers) that they use were respectful and courteous. They did their job and cleaned up afterwards. If there was a question about anything, Stefano was a quick phone call away! Their showroom is not large, but they have a great selection of products in all price ranges. I would highly recommend them!!

We had a great experience with John and Stefano at Tile and Stone. John was extremely professional and a VERY competent sales person. He made us feel very comfortable and helped us with our selections and choices along the way. Stefano is an excellent lead contractor and did a great job of giving us honest communication throughout along with daily updates. They were both very courteous and respectful of our multiple concerns, questions and comments. While there were the inevitable issues that arose along the way, in the end, all were resolved to our satisfaction and we are very pleased with the final product. We would recommend Tile and Stone in the future to friends and family. Thank you, John and Stefano!

Stefano and his Team did an outstanding job on our new Shower. His Team took the shower down to the studs and completely rebuilt it. Our initial meeting was in my home and then I visited the showroom to select product and see samples. He provided professional insight into material and design specifications. His proposal was spot on and the communication was excellant. I was most impressed with how the kept our home clean during the process by taping down paper in all traffic areas and cleaning up everyday. Stefano also suggested that we add some of the new tiles throughout the existing bathroom so that it did not appear as if we just added a new shower, but had complete remodel. Very impressed with the entire project. I would use them again and I would highly recommend them.
