Natural Inspiration for Your HomeLee Johnson
The use of natural materials in the home is a hugely popular interior design trend, and one that shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Natural materials are ideal for bringing a little warmth and beauty to your home. And when it comes to the walls and floors in your home, you can’t beat the timeless design of natural stone tiles.
Of course, different types of natural stone have their own unique charm and character. With this in mind, we’ve put together a quick guide to some of the most common natural stone tile varieties, and how you can use these to the best effect in your home.
This porous stone is both beautiful and elegant, making it a particularly great option for formal spaces. Marble also possesses real character; ideal for giving the rooms in your home a more opulent and luxurious feel. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that marble can be prone to stains and scratches, so can require a little more care and attention than other natural stone varieties.
Slate tiles are highly durable and resistant to both stains and scratches. This makes them an ideal feature for both kitchens and bathrooms. These tiles, in particular, are also perfect for giving your home a more traditional, rustic feel.
Granite tiles are a hugely popular choice in many areas of the home, and are very much in demand. As the hardest natural stone available, granite is particularly hard-wearing. As such, granite can be a sublime option for the high-traffic areas of your home.
Granite tiles are also available in a wide range of beautiful colours and are both waterproof and easy to maintain.
Travertine is a type of limestone, formed in hot springs and limestone caves to create a beautiful sedimentary rock. Travertine tiles are available in a variety of rich and earthy tones, and can bring a touch of charm to any home. Given that these tiles are made from natural stone they’re also unique and no two tiles are the same.
Travertine has a matte finish, and is typically used in areas of the home such as kitchens, bathrooms and hallways.
