Whilst there are of course a great many aspects to consider when decorating or renovating a bathroom, few are as important as the choice of floor and/or wall tiles. Certainly, the presence of high quality tiles can help to make a bathroom feel like a luxury retreat rather than simply a place to wash and bathe.
Natural stone tiles have long been a preferred option in this respect. Why? Well the reason is simple: there are precious few other luxury floor tiles around which afford the same winning combination of unique beauty and unrivalled safety as natural stone.
Natural stone bathroom tiles are made out of materials like marble, granite, limestone, sandstone, slate, marble and travertine. This means that they are not only available in a wide array of striking colours and patterns; no two tiles ever look alike. This unique beauty is what makes natural stone the most elegant and sophisticated bathroom tile option available.
The problem with some contemporary bathroom tiles is that they can become slippery – and therefore be a potential hazard – when they are wet. Natural stone tiles however, are available in a textured finish (which makes them non slip), or can have a non slip coating applied to them post-production. This means that bathers can get in and out of the bath or shower without having to worry about whether or not they will slip and fall.
