Thornhill Marble Tile


Installing marble is a great way to add an elegant look to your home. It is available in a wide variety of natural colors with large veining and speckling throughout. You can pick from different finishes such as a high gloss or low-sheen. As long as marble is properly sealed, it will hold up well to wear and tear. Marble works great as a floor, countertop, or even as a backsplash.

Homeowners can have the look of slate with the easy maintenance of vinyl. LVT is affordable, water-resistant, durable, and soft underfoot.

Thornhill Glass Tile

Glass Tile

Glass tiles are beautiful tiles that vary in translucency and can help add a unique look to your home. Since glass isn’t porous, it is resistant to mold, mildew, and set-in stains. Glass helps to brighten up a space and add some character. While glass is one of the pricier tile options, it can be mixed with more affordable tiles such as ceramic to create a unique look and bring the cost down.
