If you want to make your kitchen elegant, then go with
something in the stone tile family. You may be surprised to find out that not
all stone tiles are expensive. Different surface textures are available,
ranging from shiny and polished (which is quite slippery when wet) to dull (not
nearly as slippery but not as good looking, either). Prices for all these types
of stone flooring vary widely depending on what part of the country you’re in,
so you’ll need to check in your area to see how much you need to spend to buy
such a floor. The biggest drawback with any stone floor is that its useful
lifetime will outlast your decorating tastes. Additionally, they’re higher
maintenance than ceramic tile. Even so, here’s a closer look at the types of
stone tile that just may be the thing that trips your floor trigger.
