They are a small to medium company with not a lot of exposure to the national stage, but they are well known for their beautiful tile designs and seem to have a small but loyal following. What should you expect from Boyce and Bean? Well, since they are a small company, you should find that they are attentive to the customer and their needs.

It may be more expensive than the national brands, but it will be worth it for the individual care you receive and the appreciation you are given. You will be less likely to encounter issues with Boyce and Bean than with a more mass-produced national brand.
