Natural stone tiles bring luxury to your home alongside with the feeling of natural textures and colours, while being quite durable and long-lasting. Various stones have been used as building and tiling material throughout the centuries for the construction of temples, baths, monuments, etc. For example, travertine tiles, which are part of our selection of bathroom tiles, have been used by the Romans for the creation of the Coliseum, which is the largest building in the world constructed by this material.
Our range of natural stone bathroom tiles features marble, granite, limestone, travertine, and slate tiles, which gives an opportunity to select the best material according to your preferences. As we know that when it comes to choosing, the devil lies in the details so we are happy to give you some more details and advice about the different materials in order to facilitate your choice.
Since ancient times marble is associated with luxury, royalty and wealth. Now its beautiful patterns and shades are available to anyone and can be used both for indoor and outdoor tiling. Marble is a metamorphic rock that comes in different colours and marble tiles can be the focal point of your bathroom with matching vanity tops or other items. The marble we offer is selected on the basis of its high quality and consistency. As material it is quite resilient but needs some special attention since it can be scratched or stained. We strongly recommend sealing your marble bathroom tiles and avoiding treating them with chemicals.
Natural granite is a solid igneous rock that is granular in texture and comes in different shades. It is durable and long-lasting and is preferred for tiling of kitchens and bathrooms. If you want to make a statement with your bathroom tiles then we highly recommend you our luxurious Absolute Black Granite. As a material it is also quite easily maintained as it is resistant to acids found in cleansing materials and in food. With the proper care it will hold shine and brighten the premises. A small disadvantage of this resilient natural stone is that it looks rather cold.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of fragments of corals, molluscs and other marine organisms and it is a popular building material since the time of the Egyptians. Believe it or not the Great Pyramid and the complex in Giza are built of limestone, which proves that the material is resilient and long-lasting. So, if you would like to feel a bit like a pharaoh, while still following the contemporary tendencies, then our limestone tiles will be the best solution for your bathroom project. The great variety of possible colours can meet all your demands. Since limestone easily absorbs water, we highly recommend keeping the tiles properly sealed, with a regular maintenance.
Travertine is a form of limestone deposited mainly by hot mineral springs. It has a spongy structure and is almost always associated with the idea of Roman baths, which makes it a perfect match for any bathroom. Despite being softer than limestone it is still durable enough and will serve you quite long if properly sealed and maintained. Our travertine tiles come in different colours, textures and finishes and their mainly matted shades bring warmth to the premises.
Slate is a metamorphic rock that is fine-grained and homogeneous and splits into thin sheets that can easily be turned into tiles. Slate occurs in many shades of pale and dark grey, green, and even purple. Depending on the design, slate tiles can be suitable both for modern and rustic homes. Slate tiles are highly resilient and can be used both outdoors and indoors. Even though they are not the first option that comes to your mind when decorating a bathroom, they are worth a chance.
There is no doubt that natural stone bathroom tiles are the best solution for you both in terms of quality, durability, patterns and texture. Natural stone adds beauty and sense of luxury to the otherwise ordinary bathroom tiles. Let the word stone not mislead you though. Despite being quite resilient, natural stone tiles can also be damaged, stained or scratched. With the proper care, however, natural stone will be your ally for quite a long time.
We suggest that you research your options before choosing, say, marble or limestone for your bathroom. There is a variety of colours, finishings, textures and even quality, which may also vary from batch to batch – since natural stones come from the earth and it is their designer. Therefore we can recommend buying some additional bathroom tiles, once you made up your mind – just in case you need an extra one or for possible future replacement.
We tried to give you main directions but we will gladly assist you with more details once you come choosing your bathroom tiles.
