Comparing stone and tile flooring

 
Tiles made of stone and clay are hard-surface flooring options that can be found in many shapes and sizes. What’s great about flooring made with natural materials is that no two pieces are alike. Thus, the floor is both visually appealing and practical. Glazed floors resist water, stains, and scratches. Floors are very durable, and most likely, will never need to be replaced. There is a brand to match any room decor or design idea. Stones range from rustic limestone to elegant marble. Tiles range from old-world terracotta to modern and sleek ceramic metro.

Clay tile flooring options that you’re familiar with

 
Ceramic, porcelain, and terracotta tiles are made from clay and other natural materials, and each is fired at different temperatures in a kiln. Porcelain is virtually impervious to water. Therefore, unlike other clay tiles and natural stones, it does not need to be glazed to resist water. Porcelain is superior to ceramic. Made from fine kaolin clay, it is heavier and denser. It’s available in multi-color designs while ceramic usually comes in solid colors and patterns. Porcelain can even mimic the look of other materials like wood, metal, and natural stone.
 

Natural stone flooring in Woodinville, WA

 
Like clay tiles, natural stone flooring is ideal for households that include pets since animals can’t scratch the durable floor. While stones often bring earthy, muted tones to mind, they actually come in a wide range of colors. It’s best to learn about all of a stone’s characteristics before making a final flooring choice.

Slip-resistant slate is great for the safety-conscious homeowner while very heavy granite must have a sturdy subfloor. Relatively soft sandstone flooring is not compatible with high heels. Overall, stone works well in high traffic areas of the home.
