The Benefits of Stone Effect Tiles
- January 16, 2020
Tiles with a natural stone-effect continue to gain popularity and make a wonderful addition to any home. Drawing their visual and textural inspirations from basalts, sedimentary stones, slates and limestone, they add fresh dimension, depth and an earthy feel to the overall vision of any room, whether outdoors or indoors.
Versatile and natural feel
While the natural stones, like granite and marble, remain elegant, the stone-effect tiles have gained recognition and favour in recent years thanks to their multi-purpose effects, economical prices and durability. These tiles have a distinctly unique and eye-catching appeal and are available in a variety of colours, shades and textures. Their versatility and natural feel succeed in making any space feel luxurious and airy.
Spruce up your outdoor entertainment area, such as your patio, with the durable, high-traffic friendly stone-effect porcelain tiles or get creative and unconventional with your kitchen, bathroom or hallways spaces. The tile’s make-up of precious stones and mineral inclusions together with their glittery, sandy speckles and cementitious bases, pay homage to the traditional terrazzo and agglomerate tiles, adding to their realistic appeal. You will be pleased to know that, thanks to the benefits of modern technology, it is now possible to achieve effects so similar to natural stone that many won’t be able to tell the difference.
Stone-effect tiles are not only durable but are a more cost-effective choice compared to natural stone tiles. They are also easier to maintain, not requiring any sealing or filling upkeep, which makes them simple to clean and will retain their condition for many years. Stone-effect tiles are family friendly so everyone can enjoy the visual aspect that the tiles have to offer without worrying about potential cracking, scratching or breaking.
Stone-effect tiles combine luxury appeal and aesthetics offered by natural stone with the added practical benefits of porcelain tiles. Their retro style lends a timeless atmosphere making them less likely to become outdated and meaning they require little upkeep or renovation.
So, if you are feeling adventurous and avant-garde why not try adding stone-effect tiling to your home’s design to give it renewed style and beauty that lasts.
