When you think of ways to add style to your home, what comes to mind? Interior paint colors? Architecture? The quality of your kitchen cabinets, appliances, and fixtures? These are all good and valuable answers, but here’s another one to consider: stone tile.
What Are the Benefits of Stone Tile?
The cold, natural texture of stone in your home offers an elegance and raw beauty that is hard to match. There are a wide variety of styles and options to choose from as well, but each tile is still unique, creating a custom look that is literally one of a kind. As an added benefit, natural stone is perpetually popular, meaning that it is a high-quality, enduring investment in your home.
Stone tiles are also very durable and easy to keep clean, adding functionality to their list of positive attributes. They are not at all “just for show”!
Custom-Cut Tile Designs and Patterns
Let’s think bigger than kitchen floors for a minute. Stone tile can be used throughout the home, spreading its way into bathrooms, showers, and even as one of the materials of choice for custom back-splashes in your kitchen. Because it can be cut into a wide variety of sizes, you can create an amazing mosaic of colors and patterns really anywhere you would like.
Pair Radiant Heat with Your Stone Floor
Here at Gerety Building and Restoration, we often are asked to install a radiant heat system underneath a stone floor. The heating elements gradually warm the floor’s surface, creating a rich, even, and energy-effiicent method of keeping your home comfortable. Think of it as being similar to a sun-baked rock; once it’s up to temperature it stays comfortable and consistent, radiating warmth. It’s a wonderful system!
