People have long been coming to our Solano Beach and San Diego International Bath & Tile locations when they’re looking to remodel their bath, kitchen, pool, or outdoor space. In the 35 years we’ve been in business, we’ve built and strengthened our relationships with designers and architects from all over the globe and have been completing more and more commercial projects with dazzling results.

We’ve finished projects in New York, Texas, and across the country. Here at home, we’ve been a part of the U.S. Grant Hotel’s refurbishment, The new San Diego library and helped give Palomar Hospital a facelift, in addition we have created standout looks for several upscale Italian restaurants and bars throughout the county.

IBT is more than just a showroom; from hotels to hospitals and lobbies to restaurants, we’re able to work with all types of commercial enterprises and design something really unique and memorable. Our years of experience and access to dozens of brands make IBT an ideal partner in your next commercial project. Here are a few more reasons you can trust us in making your vision come to life.


We have a one-of-a-kind selection of plumbing and tile.

One of the things we pride ourselves on is our incredible selection of brands and lines under one roof. Not only do we have tiles, plumbing fixtures, and accessories that are more simple and understated, we also have designs that are exclusive, unique, unusual, and unlike anything you’ve seen. So no matter the type of space you’re designing—from a state-of-the-art apartment gym to a hundred tranquil, hotel bathrooms—we can help you find a look that will impress anyone who visits.


We’ll help you stay within your budget.

Because we have such an outstanding selection, we have tile at every price point. With many of our commercial projects, we accent inexpensive tiles (starting at just $1 per square foot) with custom, handcrafted pieces. Because we have such a wide price range, we can work with you to combine several tiles to create unique looks well within your budget.


Our relationship with manufacturers helps you save money.

We’ve worked with many of our vendors and manufacturers for decades, and because of that, they trust us to bring them jobs and projects that will really showcase their products. These relationships mean we are able to get high-end product at a discounted price when working with large-volume projects. For instance, when we outfitted a project with incredible Dornbracht fixtures, the architect we worked with didn’t think it would be possible, but we made it happen.

Many brands also feature a builder series at lower prices. You get the same quality and same name-brand designs for a reduced price. We’re able to show these exclusive fixtures to the architects and designers we work with, because of the strong relationship we have with our manufacturers.


We have the experience to keep your project running smoothly.
