The beauty of stone is timeless, and so it should be since it has sat in the ground for centuries, perhaps even thousands of years. Every natural stone is unique – if the tiles you are looking at are identical, then they are not real natural stone. In fact, there is a good chance they are manufactured stone tiles – often referred to as ‘cultured stone tiles’. Whilst these tiles do bring some of the best qualities of stone, they lack that uniqueness that many people love.
Natural stone tiles deliver unparalleled beauty and can transform any room into a rustic sanctuary. Entrances become more inviting; corporate board rooms can become places of commercial inspiration; a doctor’s waiting room can become a peaceful haven; and natural stone fireplaces can add to the magic that only an open fire can deliver. These are all the traits of natural stone tiles.
Add to this traits such as durability, weather resistance and water resistance, and you have the perfect tile for floors, walls, benchtops, fireplaces, and just about any other surface in either a residential, commercial or industrial setting. And yes, there are natural stone tiles that are well suited to industrial environments.
