When you want to choose interior stone floor tiles for your home, it may be difficult to know where to start. Below you’ll find guidelines to make the search easier:

  • Before You Start

Think about a floor style that will suit your home. Take a look at tiles you want to add to your home through magazines and online images. Find ways to work on the style and how it can be implemented in your home interior.

  • Tile Size

Choose tiles that will look perfect on your home. If you choose small-sized tiles, they are best for small residential areas like the bathrooms, toilets and kitchens.

  • Room Size

Choose large interior stone floor tiles to make you room feel airier and more spacious. You can use floor tiles on your wall to make a more cohesive space, but never use wall tiles for the flooring. The floor tiles will need stiffer coat and will need stiffer materials to resist traffic. If you have a small room, you need light coloured tiles to make it look bigger. If you have a larger room, you can choose between light to darker shades of tiles.

  • Colour

Think of what you can achieve in your room when tiling. Are you out for a serene and relaxing atmosphere or are you out to choose the mood of your room? Unless you have a feature area like the splashback, the interior stone floor tiles aren’t usually the main focus of the room. However, you need to complement the design features of your room.

  • Grout

Choosing the right grout colour is as important as choosing the tile. Having a contrasting grout colour will stress out the design, while a complementary colour will provide a soothing effect. To avoid stain, seal the grouted areas.

  • Texture and Pattern

You have the preference to choose between a matt and polished finish. A glazed tile is easy to clean, while a natural terracotta tile comes with no glaze and needs a seal to prevent staining.

  • In the End

No two rooms function the same and will need various interior stone floor tiles installed.  Just ensure that the flooring will complement each other to make a stylish and elegant home.
