Do you love the aesthetic of natural stone tiles? Or maybe you’re more attracted to the practicality of them, or the affordability compared to the slab. Whatever your motivation, granite tiles are an incredibly versatile option for your home and garden. Here are just some of the ways you could use granite tile in your home renovation.
Granite is the perfect material for your kitchen countertops or bathroom vanity. Since it comes in a variety of shades with unique patterns and lines, you can really make your granite countertops your own and ensure they match the rest of the room. Compared to granite countertops from the slab, granite tile countertops are more affordable and can be easier to install.
You can also use granite tile as an extension of your kitchen countertop, either matching or contrasting the material used for this surface. Backsplashes are both functional, protecting your wall from food and grease stains, and aesthetically pleasing, allowing you to create somewhat of a feature wall. If you don’t want to splash out for complete granite tile walls, then a backsplash can be a lower cost way of working granite into your kitchen.
Tiled kitchen floor
Granite is an extremely durable material, making it ideal for high traffic areas like the kitchen. A tiled floor is easy to clean, and you can rest assured that granite won’t stain or scratch easily, keeping your floors in good condition for longer. If you’re planning on selling your house, then granite floors can also add a lot to the resale value.
Bathroom or shower floors
One potential problem with natural stone is its porosity, meaning it absorbs water and other liquids. However, granite is one of the least porous natural stone options, making it suitable for use in the bathroom or even for the floor of your shower. Granite should be properly sealed for use in the bathroom to reduce its porosity and keep it in good condition. A tiled bathroom or shower floor made from granite can be incredibly attractive and is also easy to clean and maintain.
Granite tile is also a popular material for the walls of shower cubicles, or for bathroom and kitchen walls in general. Again, granite tiles are nice and easy to clean, so you can keep them looking great all year round. With granite available across a range of colors, you can choose the tile to suit the style and décor of the rest of the room.
