Natural Stone Tile

Natural stone tile has been a flooring material as long as there have been finished floors.  Marble, Granite, Slate, Travertine, Sandstone and Soapstone are cut very precisely into tiles of various sizes that can be installed just like manufactured tile.

Because stone is a natural material, variations in color, texture and markings are to be expected and are part of the charm of the material.  Manufacturers do offer stone tiles with some added finish, though.  In addition to polished, suppliers offer a variety of distressed and textured finishes that can be very attractive as well as slip resistant.

Unfinished rough stone is striking, but, with the exception of granite, absorbs water and stains easily if left unsealed.  Light colored stone tends to stain and show dirt, so ask for guidance on sealing the stone you’re considering.  Also, not all types of stone are uniformly abrasion resistant, so check before making a purchase.  Some stone is so soft that it can be very easily scratched by normal foot traffic.

Natural stone tile – cut from marble, granite, slate and other types of stone – has been thought of as flooring material, but its natural patterns and textures are also suitable for walls in some situations.  Tumbled stone tile has become extremely popular for walls all over the house.  Polished and rough-cut stone tile are often used on fireplace surrounds and in other dry locations.

The thinner tiles are most appropriate for walls because they’re easy to install.  Some natural stone trim pieces are available, but the selection is somewhat limited.  You may have to polish the edges of regular tile to create finished edges.
