Let’s keep it real. Price is a huge factor in decision-making. Figuring out what to splurge on and what to skimp on is very important. Flooring is something that you’ll use every day and will be with your home for a very long time.
If you’re shopping around for natural stone and on a strict budget, make sure to look around for sales. Not all-natural stone tiles will fit into your project budget, but some will! There are tons of options to choose from.
If you have your heart set on the look of natural stone but find that cost is prohibitive, you may want to consider a material that has a less expensive price point. There are porcelain tiles on the market with the look of stone.
Of course, as the Motown hit goes - Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby – but you can certainly purchase something surprisingly realistic if need be.
Some types of natural stone, such as marble or limestone, will change over time. The tread of heavy foot traffic will eventually age marble from polished to hone and from honed to more hone.
Natural stone floor tiles are very much like the skin on your face and deserve to be treated as such. Both are beautiful and like special treatment from time to time!
Some tools and cleaners can ruin materials like limestone and marble, so it’s incredibly important to do your research on the proper way to maintain the floor tile you select.
