Marble and granite are still one of the most popular materials when it comes to home décor. They can be used for various elements of your home; in the kitchen, bathroom and hallways. Natural stones are often used for bathrooms in hotels and public institutions because they represent luxury. Now, you can introduce such luxury to your home just by choosing them for your bathroom tiles.
1. They are not slippery
Natural stones are porous and have a rough surface. Because of that, they will not be slippery, so you don’t have to worry about accidental falls.
2. They are recognizable
Marble is recognizable by the veining, while granite is by the granulation. They both have colours that have neither veining nor granulation, but those are the most common types. They are considered the most beautiful stones by the many and they will add elegance and luxury to your bathroom.
3. They have a variety of colours
In our range, you can find numerous granite and marble colours. From classic choices like white, beige or black, to the more unusual ones like yellow, green or orange. Since marble and granite are natural stones, the colours are not bright, instead, they are dimmed.
4. They are durable
This applies more to granite than to marble. Granite is a very hard and dense material that will be very hard to break or crack. While marble is still very durable, it can get chipped easier than granite.
5. They are easy to clean
Cleaning of both is handled with ease; all you need to do is to make the soapsuds and wipe the tiles with a mop. Then wash the mop and wipe of the soapsuds. You can let your tiles dry by themselves or remove the remaining water with a dry mop.
1. They can get stained
This applies more to marble than to granite, since it is more porous than granite. Pay special attention with nail polish and hair colour, because if you don’t remove them properly and on time, your tiles can get stained permanently.
2. They are sensitive to chemicals
Avoid cleaning agents that contain acids or bleach because they can damage their surface. The damage reflects in the discolouration of the part that was exposed to acid. Such discolourations are permanent, which is enough reason to avoid such cleaning agents at all costs.
3. Marble can get scratched
Since marble is a lot of softer material than granite, it can get scratched easier than it. Replacing a scratched tile is not that easy, so be careful around your tiles.
Natural stone tiles will be a great addition to your bathroom. They will bring luxury and elegance no other material can. It is just up to you to choose the one that will fit your manners of use the best. Finding a perfect colour in their range will give you no hard times.
