Marble/Limestone Tile – this impact-resistant and beautiful stone comes in many earthy toned colours, and can dress up a hallway or bathroom dramatically.
Granite Tile – granite tile comes in darker colours and is widely used in large office buildings as floors and walls, but can also be used at home to add a sophisticated up-scale feel. They are very easy to clean and upkeep, and will often last longer than the building itself.
Stone countertops are stunning additions to any home. They have some very appealing characteristics that cannot be provided by its wooden and plastic counterpart. Some of these characteristics include having a chip, and scratch resistant surface, as well as its ability to withstand high temperatures without any discolouration or damage of any kind. Therefore, stone is perfect for kitchen surfaces where there can be many hot pots, pans, knives, and other sharp objects.
Traditional Granite – Traditional granite is the most common style of stone used. It comes in mostly darker shades of browns, greys and blacks, but also a couple of options for lighter coloured browns and beiges.
Exotic Granite – At a slightly higher cost, due to its rare occurrence, exotic granite comes in a larger range of colours and patterns. Choose from blues, reds, and even some yellow among the usual choices with unique patterns.
Quartzite – Quartzite develops from sandstone over hundreds of years with the help of tectonic pressure and compression. This metamorphosis results in a stunningly beautiful result of amazing natural patterns.
