Choosing the right tile for your home can be difficult. There are many different styles, designs, and materials, and just as many ways to use them. Here at Glamour Flooring, we have an extensive inventory of quality natural stone tiles, which we proudly offer at wholesale prices. Additionally, our design and installation experts make your renovation a breeze. Let’s take a look at some of our stone tile options, and the benefits they offer your home.
Travertine is related to marble and limestone, and is the result of many, many years of mineral element deposits in natural bodies of water. This long process creates an extremely compact and durable natural stone, making travertine ideal for use as a building material. There are numerous configurations that can successfully use travertine, from kitchen floors and backsplashes, to outdoor walkways through the garden. These versatile tiles are long lasting, and highly pleasing to the eye.
One example of travertine’s use is in the Roman Coliseum. Many travertine structures from days long past are still standing today, which proves how tough these tiles really are. For this reason, travertine tiles are often used in high-traffic areas where resistance to wear is essential. Travertine has naturally occurring specks and tiny holes, which give it a unique and distinguishable look. We offer different types of travertine flooring, including filled & honed, straight-edge, chiseled, and tumbled – it all depends on your needs.
Marble is a favorite material for tiling use, due mainly to its cultural esteem. For centuries, marble has been closely associated with wealth and royalty. This natural stone gives homes a feeling of decadence, while still maintaining a calm and elegant essence. Gorgeous, complex colors like carrera white, rojo alicante, and emperador dark provide homes with a timeless look that will never go out of style.
Of course, marble is not just desired for its aesthetic properties. This is a highly functional building material that is known to last. This extremely dense stone is incredibly difficult to crack or break, making it the perfect option for tiling in an area that is frequently used and abused. Marble may cost a bit more than other flooring materials, but when you consider how low-maintenance and long-lasting it really is, the price difference is worth the investment. Marble is resistant to stains and simple to care for.
Slate is another excellent tiling choice for those areas that need some additional durability. It is often used as an outdoor tile, or in areas that are susceptible to heat or moisture, as it is resistant to water and fire, and requires little to no maintenance. It is stain proof, so caring for it requires minimal effort, whether used as an interior or exterior tile. Slate’s rough surface also helps to prevent slipping, and its density makes it last for many years.
Slate also has a unique look that is known and loved among designers and homeowners alike. Colors like California gold, autumn, multi-color, Indian autumn, and ostrich gray can provide a wonderful, subtle accent to any home décor. Slate has a certain charm that can really add a lot to a room when properly utilized. Our skilled design and installation experts will be happy to help you to get the most out of your slate tiles.
