Timeless Stone Tile
There is nothing like stone tile to give a room rich and timeless beauty, natural, elegant and unique. What makes natural stones so unique is that no two tiles look alike. Where ceramic and porcelain tiles have identical colors, each stone tile is different in color and pattern. The most popular stone tiles are granite, marble, slate and limestone. When shopping for natural stone tile, consider the lasting look you want and select the type that best suits your application.
Granite tile commonly comes with a smooth, polished surface. Not only does this make the granite stain resistant. The polished surface makes the tile very attractive. Granite is the hardest of the stone tiles making it the most resistant to scratching, cracking and chipping. Because of its hardness and durability, granite is a good choice for kitchen and bathrooms.
Marble meanwhile, is usually chosen because of its clean classic look, which can bring a feeling of elegance to almost any space, even the bathroom floor. Marble tile is however easily stained, so while it can make a bathroom counter, it should not be used on kitchen countertops.
Limestone is much less versatile than marble or other stone tiles because it’s so soft and porous; limestone is best used in dryer areas of the home. Still, limestone is perfect for creating a sense of rustic charm.
While most other tiles are cut smooth, slate tile has a rougher, raised surface texture. This watery rippled texture is great for entryways and mudroom floors where slates rough surface creates good traction for in coming and outgoing foot traffic.
When it comes to price, these natural stone options may cause more than ceramic tile. But it is not necessary more difficult to install yourself as long as you follow the tile manufacturers guidelines. Just keep in mind that slate, marble and limestone will need a coating of sealer to prevent them from staining. Whether it’s marble, granite, limestone or slate, natural stone tile give you many options when it comes to color, finish, appearance and application.
