Granite and Quartz Tiles

Granite and Quartz Tiles, What are the Benefits?

It’s impossible to make an informed decision about the flooring in your home without doing a bit of research. Floor tiles, and their fitting, can be expensive, and so you need to be confident that you are making the right decision for your home.

Granite tiles and quartz tiles both have their own, unique, advantages and disadvantages. This article will tell you a bit more about these.

Granite Tiles

Granite tiles are made by processing volcanic rock until it has a smooth surface. This smoothing process brings out the beauty of the rock. But, that is not the only advantage.

. Granite tiles are extremely durable. Its durability is the reason granite is so often chosen for floor tiles and worktops, you don’t need to worry about damaging them with stilettos, knives, and cooking equipment.

. Great option for wet areas. Granite doesn’t need to be protected from moisture and water, the surface is basically impenetrable to liquid. Even leaving standing liquid on the surface won’t damage your granite tiles.

. Granite tiles also come in many styles. Because granite is made during natural volcanic processes, it comes in a range of colours due to the volcanic processes that rely on a range of temperatures and minerals. You will easily be able to find a granite floor tile that fits in with your chosen decor.

One disadvantage of granite tiles, however, is that they are extremely heavy. This can mean they can be difficult to install, and so you will definitely need the help of a professional company.

Quartz Tiles

Quartz tiles are another popular choice, they are one of the most commonly used tiles in homes thanks to their huge range of benefits. 

. Quartz tiles are very versatile, they can be used for every surface, floors, walls, countertops and bathroom surfaces. 

. They are non-porous, this means quartz tiles are easy to keep clean, no matter where they are used. You don’t need to use any special measures or processes, just a damp cloth and some mild soap.

. Their non-porous traits also mean they are stain resistant, so you don’t need to stress about wine and coffee spills. Any liquid you spill will sit there until you clean it up (but it’s always a good idea to clean it quickly to avoid falls).

. Quartz tiles are affordable and perfect for a homeowner who wants the sleekness of tiles, on a tighter budget. As the quartz doesn’t demand any commitment to special treatments, you also save on this stress too.
