Natural Stone Tile
Natural stone tile is produced from natural materials that are quarried, slabbed, finished, and cut to size. Common types of stone include: granite, marble, limestone, travertine and slate. Natural stone tile can be finished or left unfinished. Natural unfinished surfaces have an earthy, dull appearance with texture and pitting. A honed finish creates a smooth, matte appearance – excellent for high-traffic and wet areas to prevent slipping and wear. Polished natural stone is highly reflective with a mirror-like finish.
Porcelain tile is fired at higher temperatures than regular ceramic tile, so it’s denser, less porous, and wears better. Not only is it stunningly beautiful, it is stronger than granite and resistant to staining. Porcelain tile is made of all-natural products, and it has low VOCs. It can be cleaned with water alone, so no harsh chemicals are required, and it doesn’t readily support the growth of mold, fungus or bacteria.
We invite you to drop by our San Rafael design showroom to discuss your ideas with our porcelain and natural stone tile experts and see what we have to offer.
