What are the important do’s and don’ts of stone effect tiling?

Stone effect tiling is a stunning option for any property. From the most contemporary to the most traditional there are stone effect tiles that can really wow in any space. However it’s important to get this right to achieve the best possible visual result. And these are our important tips:

Do choose a shade that will suit your decor

Stone effect tiles are available in a wide range of shades and tones from beiges and creams to blues and greys. As a result you should be sure to choose the shade that will best match your interior. For example, often property developers and homeowners make the mistake of choosing a very dark stone effect floor tile but this does not always work effectively, especially in smaller kitchens and bathrooms where the dark colour can make the space feel even smaller than it really is. A lighter brighter colour in contrast could really visually expand the space.

Don’t forget about the many different types of stone

Stone effect tiles can cover a wide range of bases. While many people only really consider stone effect tiles that mirror natural limestone or slates, there are many other possibilities. These include marble effect tiles, granite effect tiles, and even brick effect tiles. As a result there is sure to be a stone effect tile that can perfectly complement your design and space.

Do consider the grouting 

Grouting for stone effect tiles is just as flexible as the style and type of stone effect tiles available. From large grout lines that help to add friction to a bathroom or kitchen floor, to almost invisible grout lines that create the effect of continuous tiling, there are a range of effective options available. Make sure you research the different grout options and choose the best option for your home.
