This is popular like the previous option of granite but when it comes to quality and form marble still remains beyond any competition. Limestone: This variant is liked just because of its texture quality and appearance but it is normally available in neutral colors and lighter shades. As compared to any other interior natural stone tiles limestone is something that is vulnerable to blemishes but it is popular for its durability. Slate: This is a highly durable alternative known for its versatility. The best thing about this option is that it is available in the wide range of textures and colors. It is turning out to be a popular choice among homeowners for installing in the kitchen.
Actually now that Im thinking about it I probably would have chosen to decorate with natural stone tiles anyway since they look so much better than linoleum wood or other types of flooring. Thats just my humble opinion of course. So once I decided to use natural stone tiles in these rooms I checked through some books and magazines for inspiration. I found lots of lovely patterns to choose from and decided to try to emulate a few of the looks I discovered on those glossy pages. The next step was to purchase the natural stone tiles themselves which took a bit more work. At first I went to the local home improvement center but they didnt have the exact tile pattern I wanted -- and their prices were a tad too high anyway. So I started browsing online and came across several websites that stocked precisely what I wanted. They were offering pretty good deals too -- even with shipping and handling charges thrown into the mix. After I took delivery of the natural stone tiles I began the real work of renovating my house. I started in the kitchen where I wanted to replace the backsplash and floor. It took me kind of a long time to get my bearings and gain some confidence in my capabilities but once I got the hang of the process I had no trouble putting each tile in place. Im not quite finished in there but hope to make significant progress next week.
