Every stone has its own beauty, texture, colour or pattern. From the timeless veined marble, through the rustic travertine and versatile granite and slate tiles, there is a stone for any room and every taste. What is even better, is that there are various natural stone tiles in one colour family so if you are fan of a certain shade, you can easily decorate your home with it.
Today, we are going to focus on the black varieties of natural stone tiles and how you can use them for various interior and exterior projects. One of the tendencies for 2018 is to have your kitchen decorated in black, so if this is your favourite colour, you are on the right track. Here are some of the most popular black stones that you can incorporate in your design:
Black Extra Granite
One of the popular dark stones is Black Extra Granite. If you choose these tiles for your bathroom, you will end up with a gorgeous luxury retreat. The combination with white bathtub and sink is an eternal classic, however, you can also choose a more dramatic shade – such as red. The overall look of the black granite tiles is suitable for a contemporary décor. In addition to the bathroom, this stone is suitable for the kitchen – both for a counter top, kitchen island or flooring; for the living spaces or for the entrance. Depending on the purpose, you can also choose a specific finish of the tiles. Polished is a good idea for walls or counter tops, while honed or antiqued is perfect for the floor.
Minster Black Antiqued Limestone
Limestone is more often associated with its tanned, creamy colour and rustic look. Nevertheless, the Minster Black Antiqued Limestone is another excellent option for those who prefer darker shades. The best surface finish for this type of tiles is antiqued as it adds to the natural beauty of the stone. The tiles are perfect both for walls and floors and can be used for interior and exterior projects. The black limestone will add charm and mystery to your bedroom and will become a perfect accent wall in your dining hall or living room. The stone is also a smart idea for your patio design that will make your house look rather different. Strange as it may sound, the black tiles are also a good solution for smaller premises like utility rooms, toilets or entrance areas. If properly combined with a lighter stone, be it of the same type or different. The pattern is also of great importance, so make sure to choose the right one depending on the purpose and size of the room.
Nero Pizarra Riven Slate
Slate tiles are quite versatile and can be utilized in many projects both indoors and outdoors. The Nero Pizarra Riven Slate comes in different shades of grey and black and is the perfect wall tile. The riven finish accentuates the natural look of slate. This stone can be used all around the house – from the bathroom to the bedroom and is one of the most suitable options for patio flooring as well. Each tile incorporates different shades, which breaks the monotonous look of an all-black room.
Nero Pizarra Riven Glacier
If you are looking for an interesting accent wall, then the Nero Pizarra Riven Glacier is for you. These tiles are perfect for both interior and exterior projects. Their riven texture makes them an unique addition to your kitchen or living room and an interesting bed overboard for the bedroom.
Mezzanotte Honed Marble
Even though the Mezzanotte Honed Marble cannot be described as classically black, it is a perfect option for those who prefer mixed darker shades. A beautiful combination between grey, black and white, this perfect stone is suitable for virtually any renovation project in your house. Turn your bathroom into a cozy retreat or add a bit of nuances to your black and white kitchen. The honed surface of the tiles makes them great for flooring even in wet premises. Add to that the longevity and timeless beauty of marble and you have a luxury finish for any of the rooms in your home.
Black mosaic solutions
Another interesting way of decorating your interior with black tiles is to use mosaics. This is a great idea for a kitchen backsplash or a wall decoration in any of the rooms, including on the outside of the house. Two of the popular black mosaic tiles are:
- Taurus Nero Tumbled, which can be applied both on walls and floors in any of the rooms in the house
- Imperial Black Riven Mosaic, which is also an excellent solution for your home interior and exterior projects
Black natural stone tiles are a great option for decorating your house. They are not only trendy this year but bear the magic of eternal beauty. The good news is that there is a variety of natural stones in the darker shades, so you can choose the right one for you or combine them according to your needs.
