You can imitate natural stone, however, it never really looks as good as the real thing. In today’s post, we’re interested in stone – natural stone, as it’s found naturally. This stone is cut to the required size, often polished smooth, and sometimes sealed to preserve the natural beauty.
If you want to add a touch of class to your home, then there’s no doubting the effect that marble tiles can have. Marble is one of those stones that draws the eyes in, almost capturing the imagination. It’s also a stone that has been used for centuries – and in many places, there are centuries old marble floors still handling traffic.
Travertine floor tiles are often mistaken for marble. In fact, in some place, they are referred to as ‘marble travertine’. This is an erroneous label since travertine is a sedimentary rock, which, when cut and polished, has a very distinct look of its own.
