The fireplace is one of the most defining features in many homes and properties, and using tiling around this can turn your fireplace into a stunning visual feature. From patterned tiles and geometric options, to more natural choices like timber effect tiles and stone effect tiles, there are a range of options to choose from. Stone effect tiles are one of the most effective choices for fireplaces in traditional, rustic and modern properties. But why should you choose stone effect tiles for fireplace tiling?
What are the advantages of stone effect tiles for fireplace tiling?
There are a number of advantages to choosing stone effect tiles for your fireplace area. These advantages include:
- Withstanding the temperature changes– many stone effect tile options are porcelain, instead of ceramic. This means they are more durable and resilient to the constant heating and cooling cycle. As a result, they will last longer, and will not suffer from chips or cracks caused by the frequent temperature changes.
- Natural effect and style- stone effect tiles offer a natural effect and finish that can help to either create a stunning visual feature, or create a subtle but impressive area in your home. This natural effect works well with wood burning or multi-fuel stoves, creating an effective backdrop for flames, but without the hassle of using real, natural stone, which would be much more difficult to maintain. Stone effect tiles are also available in a wide range of colours and textures, so these can suit your decor in any home, traditional or contemporary.
- Add texture- stone effect tiles don’t just look like real stone, they also provide the same natural texture too. This visibly improves the fireplace space, but it also adds visual interest to the space. From a realistic brick work effect, to slate or limestone slabs, there are a number of options to choose from, offering a range of textures. Not only does this add value visually, but in the unlikely event of damage being caused to the tiles, this would be much less noticeable.
