Natural stone has been popular for use on floors for centuries and for very good reason. Stone tile brings the colors and texture of nature to our homes and adds a quality and warmth to a room that’s not possible with any other material.

If you have to repair a floor later, the stone you want may not be available.

Let’s take a look at the most popular stone tile materials: slate, travertine, sandstone, granite and marble. Which one would you choose?
