When it comes to choosing tiles and claddings, it’s hard to match the beauty and timelessness of natural stone. There is nothing man-made about real stone – the colour, the highlights, the grain and the variations have all been crafted by nature during millions of years.
Natural stone tiles and cladding come in a variety of colours, sizes and finishes.
The most popular types of natural stone are:
- Basalt – a volcanic stone featuring exceptional hardness and durability.
- Granite – the hardest common building stone making it exceptionally durable, colourfast and stain and scratch resistant.
- Limestone – a sedimentary rock composed mainly of calcite’s (shells of marine animals, some up to 140 million years old from the Jurassic period).
- Marble – a metamorphasised rock formed from limestone featuring stunning veins.
- Sandstone – a sedimentary rock formed as the result of water, ice and wind patterns composed of compacted sand with minerals determining its colour.
- Travertine – a form of limestone deposits precipitated from springwater or hot springs featuring a distinctive grained effect and Swiss cheese surface unless filled.
