Spice Up Your Bathroom With Natural Stone Wall Tiles

Natural stone wall tiles can really spice up a boring bathroomMention a bathroom and the picture is often one of white, or off white, wall tiles and coordinated floor tiles. In most cases, those wall tiles will be ceramic, mainly because of its ability to withstand water. However, ceramic wall tiles are not the only tiles suitable for bathroom walls. You can also use glass mosaic, and even natural stone.

Natural stone wall tiles come in a variety of stones. Marble, granite and travertine are the most common, and whilst they are normally either used as floor tiles or decorative wall tiles in other areas of the home, there’s no reason why they cannot be used in a bathroom. The most difficult part in laying natural stone wall tiles is ensuring they are adhered to the wall correctly.

Because natural stone tiles can be heavier than ceramic or glass mosaic, you do need to ensure you have a good foundation and the right adhesive.
