Stone Tiles

Construction and Durability
Though stone has only been in mass production for 50 years, its material lends a traditional style with connotations of permanence. If you want something that lasts, stone tile is a classic go-to option.

At Designers’ Touch, we offer many popular and durable products, including stone tiles. Once you’ve determined that stone is right for you, there are a number of types of stone and different finishes to consider.

Types of Stone

Granite
A hard rock that comes in a variety of colors and patterns.

Limestone
A smooth sedimentary stone. Its colors include neutrals: off-white, beige, tan, taupe, and light blue-grey.

Marble
When heat and pressure are applied to limestone, marble is created. Available in a variety of colors, marble’s veins are created by mineral deposits. Marble has the ability to be polished to a high shine.

Slate
Slate is composed of quartz, chlorite, mica, and calcite. It is available in various shades and is very durable.

Travertine
Travertine is a banded form of limestone, formed in underground rivers and streams. Its characteristic colors include neutrals: off-white, beige, tan, and yellow. The look of travertine is created by the interaction of gas, shells, and water.

 

Stone Finishes
