Let us get into the details about the three points to be considered during the purchase: Solidity: This is pretty an easy thing to measure and people can judge the solidity of the product by breaking it. If it is hard to break the buyer can be satisfied that he has the right natural stone in his hand. Also he can try to drop a hammer from a good height for testing whether it breaks. In some showrooms there will be a separate space for conducting this type of tests on the stones. The dealers provide this sort of space just because of the fact that they are highly confident about the quality of the product that they deal with. If it is of the best quality there will not even be a mark of the hammer.
A granite counter top with slate wall tiles can make your kitchen so beautiful. Sandstone: It has an appealing outer shell and softest texture and this would be ideal for people looking for beautiful and soft looking floors. However this type needs very good maintenance and it is highly vulnerable to staining. Mosaics: Stone tiles falling under this category can give a classical and elementary look to your home. This type is highly popular for its creative design and it can provide a contrasting look if you add it for borders while the flooring is made with some other tiles. You will find different options available when you place orders for your tiles from a professional firm dealing with quality products. I bought a starter home a few months ago and ever since then have been spending my free evenings and weekends trying to renovate the place. I decided to go the DIY route so I bought a few books and manuals printed out some step-by-step instructions from the Internet and have been slowly upgrading the floors in my kitchen bathroom and entrance foyer. After careful consideration I decided to go with natural stone tiles for the job. I cant wait to see how everything turns out! I know there are plenty of cheaper options than natural stone tiles out there but I wanted to add a touch of elegance and class to my home. Plus I figured I could splurge a bit on the decorating since I saved so much money by buying the place "as is".
Different stones that you could choose from include travertine granite marble and slate and this means that you have a wide range of colours and patterns to choose from.
