Unlike marble, which is a layered sedimentary rock, granite is a rock derived from volcanic magma, and typically has pebbly or spotted colour patterns. Granite is often used for worktops, so as a flooring material it is also a favourite for kitchen spaces.
Partly consisting of quartz, a glittery material, granite usually has that touch of ‘sparkle’ and it glitters and glistens when viewed from different angles under different lights. We recommend granite tile flooring because of its resiliency, strength, and variety of unique colour options.
Durable and Beautiful
Granite floor tiles are made by processing volcanic rock until they have smooth surfaces, which brings out the granite’s hidden beauty. Granite’s exceptional durability, as well as its sparkly beauty, makes it an excellent flooring choice.
Used as worktop surfaces, granite is incredibly scratch and chip-proof, and granite flooring will outlast most tiles made from other popular materials. If you want longevity, then granite is a great option for your home or workspace.
Choosing Granite Flooring
People often choose natural stone or porcelain tiles for the wet areas of the home, since granite flooring creates a surface that’s practically impenetrable to liquids.
Granite is also perfect for those who suffer from allergies, as, like other natural wood and stone floor coverings, it is hypoallergenic and will reduce the amount of allergens in your home. Our granite floor choices include a wide range of colours and patterns, the most common being white, black, beige, brown, blue, and red.
