Tile Showcase was founded in 1947 as a tile installation business by Alfred Merullo, and in 1963 his son Anthony Merullo Sr., opened Tile Showcase in Watertown, Massachusetts. Today, Tile Showcase operates from two locations in the Massachusetts area by Alfred’s two grandsons, Fred and Joe. Three generations of family involvement in the day to day business has kept the Merullo family in touch with the demands of the marketplace and has allowed them to grow and expand in response.

This is my second time working with Christine at Tile Showcase. She is helping with tile design for 2 bathrooms in my new house. Previously, she helped me with my kitchen and 2 baths. Christine is a very talented and artistic designer. She has a great aesthetic and listens to the customer. She knows the her products and can put them together to create a beautiful finished project. Tile Showcase has beautiful material and has something for every budget. The showroom will give you inspiration.

Rene at Tile Showcase is the absolute BEST!!! She helped me pick tiles for my house and pool. She was extremely efficient, professional, helpful and lovely to work with. I would highly recommend Tile Showcase to anyone and will definitely use them again in the future!!!

On our second bathroom remodel, and we couldn’t have done it without Rene’ and Tile Showcase! The selection is vast, and Rene’ is knowledgeable and supportive. Her eye for room design, color and style was just what we needed to make great tile selections - and ensure our entire design was cohesive. She always made time for us - even on a busy Saturday - when we popped in for a question or consult. She is more than a tile consultant - she is a Tile-ist!!

I called numerous tile places in the Cambridge/Arlington/Watertown area with a difficult tile problem. While everyone was very nice, it was Joe at Tile Showcase who really listened to my problem, helped me trouble shoot, and figured out a way to solve it! I can't be happier. He was patient, helpful, and had a lot of good ideas. He solved my tile problem and I love the tile we selected. Tile Showcase will be the first place I go for tile from here on out! Thank you again, Joe!

The team at Tile Showcase is amazing.  They recently helped my wife and I with tile for our kitchen and bathroom renovations.  We worked with Rene for design.  The feedback she provided was invaluable.  This was a first renovation and we really didn't think of a lot of things that she brought up throughout the process.  So we really appreciated her guidance.  She gave us a lot of samples to bring home to try out in the light in our home. When we were ready we were able to call her and place our order over the phone.  It arrived when our contractor was ready for it with out any issues.    We thought the pricing was on par or slightly less than other suppliers in the area but were blown away with the amazing customer service. If ever we need tile again, we will certainly be back to Tile showcase.

We went to this place based on the recommendation by our contractor, whom we trust and has worked for us on various projects over the years. Rene is very knowledgable and has a good eye for what combination works. She listens and then shows you things that are inline with your idea. We ordered tiles, backsplashes, accents, etc for a kitchen and two bathrooms. You pay all upfront including the delivery charge, unless if you want to pick up yourself. So far so good. We are promised 2-3 weeks for most of the items and Rene said she will stay on top of this.

Rene Yang is absolutely fantastic for all your tile needs. She is an amazing designer- she will take your ideas and then come up with a whole bunch of other ideas, some of which push you out of your comfort zone, which is good. But she is always respectful of your wishes and budget as well. She doesn't just try to sell you the most expensive tile. She is responsive, honest, fun and a joy to work with. I cannot recommend her more highly and think she should definitely be your go-to person for all your tile needs.

A beautiful showroom with great customer service! Rene Yang is by far one of the greatest tile design consultants I've met!
