Are you thinking of replacing your old flooring? If yes, how do you know which material is the best option for you? Thus, before making a purchase, it is important to consult a tile expert to learn more about your options.
For tiles, stone tiles might be the right choice for you and here’s why:
- Durability: Stones like granite are very durable and adds a layer of elegance to your bathroom or kitchen. Marble, limestone, and travertine, while more porous, if sealed properly last forever.
- Wide Variety of Designs: Stones have a large variety of designs and options and thus, they are very versatile and will compliment your home decor. You can add an insert or place the tile on a diagonal or use a basket weave pattern.
- Increase Home Value: Whenever stones are applied, it will increase your home’s value and studies show more homeowners prefer stones than other materials.
Stone tiles are considered a long-term investment. They might be a little bit costly, however, they are well worth it in the end because of the benefits they will offer. Although stone can be colder than hardwood in the colder months, that can be easily resolved by installing radiant heat or by placing rugs on the floors. In the summer, stones will keep the space cooler. Stones are more convenient than hardwood too when installed as flooring because they are easier to clean and no need to worry about liquid spills. Stone tiles resist scratches from pets and furniture.
