As natural as you can get, stone and tile are part of the rugged, earthy look many home and business owners are striving for. Ideal for entries, bathrooms, basements and hallways, tiles are a durable product of choice. Stone is best with radiant floor heating to make your spa experience as warm as possible. The finish is tough and will typically prevent most stains and water build up.
Things to consider:
While tile and stone create an awesome and artistic look, textured varieties can be hard on the feet and smooth tiles can be dangerously slippery. Grout can also harbour bacteria and viruses (which are highest in a bathroom than any other area of your home) and can easily stain and mold. Waterproofing the grout and tiles on a regular basis is a must. Rugs or mats can help reduce accidents.
