There has never before been a time like now, where choosing the right tiles seems like such an enormous task. This is because there are so many different options available. After all, the choice of your floor tiles can have a significant impact on the character of your home. As the options for floor tiles continue to grow, one of the emerging types of tiles is stone look tiles.
Until just a few years ago, stone look tiles used to look clearly artificial. Often using the same design and colour on every tile. Such tiles lacked depth and were simply boring. However, new ink jet technology has allowed manufacturers to add depth and natural character. Unique designs are now printed onto each tile giving them character and making them look truly stone-like. It’s also worth mentioning environmentally friendly processes are now used to produce tiles. This helps them to receive LEED certification.
Why Choose Stone Look Tiles?
1. The look
With the help of the latest technology, manufacturers are now able to mimic the beautiful character of natural stones in fine detail. The freedom in producing virtually unlimited variations of designs and colours means that you can get designs of most natural stones. Available designs include quartz, carrara marble, limestone, granite, travertine and more. Stone look tiles are available in a wide range of colours from light to dark. So, you can choose just the right colour to suit the colour scheme of your home.
Porcelain tiles are one of the hardest materials around for residential homes. Additionally, most European manufacturers put these tiles through various tests. These test resistance against abrasion, bending, frost, discolouration, chemicals and more. In fact, these tiles are suitable even for commercial properties where there is high traffic. So you can rest assured that you have made the right choice if durability is of high importance to you.
3. No maintenance required
Stone look tiles require hardly any maintenance unlike other flooring like natural stone and real timber. A glazed surface is highly resistant to water, chemicals and other damaging substances. Therefore, requiring no sealing or special treatment. The high resistance to many elements also makes it one of the best suited materials for outdoor tiles.
