Pssst. Hey, you, yes you – it is me the Cat. I knew being on the cover in my Sunday best would get your attention - and now that I have it - I’d like to tell you a little about my good friend John Schrab and his tile store - Morena Tile & Stone. John’s family has been setting tile for four generations. His Great Grandpa Tat, – installed the Mosaic State Seal in the Arizona State Capitol building in 1921. His Grandpa – Earnest, was a tile and stone Craftsmen with over a hundred men working for him. His Dad John was a rodeo cowboy, tile and stone contractor and setter who passed his knowledge down to him. As one can imagine, setting tile takes its toll on the body and after 35 years on his paws and knees, John decided it was time to pursue his dream of owning a tile store.

John took over the Morena Tile San Juan Capistrano in 2014 and over the last six years he has put together a real sweetheart of a showroom … 5000 square feet of fun, imaginative and up-to-date tile and stone including porcelain, granite, marble, travertine, limestone and quartz from over seventy – five vendors. Add a few fun-loving customer service-oriented teammates, and a cat as a mascot, and poof you have got yourself one hell a dream come true.

Homeowners, designers, and contractors alike love the selection and the convenience of shopping locally in a store where everybody knows your name. Stop in and have a bite of lunch, a cup of coffee (or have a nip of something a little stronger if you get my drift…) while you look around and talk to one of the designers who are at the ready to give you ideas to get your project started, help with design and tile selection in order to bring your project to life. They know the importance of treating customers like family and handling your dream project as if it were their own.

Cat Tip: If you need a fabricator for your countertops, or someone to install your tile, they have a fabrication shop on site with crews of experienced master craftsmen who have been with John’s family for decades. You will love how they combine their cutting-edge machine technology with old-world craftsmanship - which allows John the motto, “ we make things pretty everyday.”
