I recently went tile shopping with my wife. We live in Gungahlin so headed on over to Mitchell and checked out the local tile shops. One that we liked was on Essington Street. It is Tileflair. The guy who runs the store is Peter. He is very helpful and answered all the questions that my wife had, they even had a kids play area to keep our daughter entertained for a while as we looked around the store. At Tileflair they have some nice tile displays. Maybe too nice as my wife says she wants some more expensive tiles. Another tile store we saw was ACT tiles which was down the road from Tilefiair.
