Our flooring experts at Floor Coverings International North York make it our top priority to help families and business owners find the perfect flooring options to fit their needs, tastes, and budgets. If you are a North York homeowner that is looking to brighten up your home with a classic, long-lasting flooring option that will add value to your home, consider granite tiles. Granite tiling is very popular in North York, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Scarborough, and Markham because of its unique variety of style and finishes.
Granite is a highly versatile stone that comes in many colors, speck patterns, and designs. Dark stone with white specks, colorful stone with no specks, you name it – we got it. Whether you are looking to add warmth to a kitchen, create a sleek atmosphere in the office, or nearly anything in between, there is a granite tile option that will match your design needs.
In addition to the design of the granite tiles, you have the option to select the finish. There are three main finishes:
Polished granite tiles are the ultra-sleek, shiny tiles that bring elegance and class anywhere they are installed. While it is traditional to have darker varieties of granite polished, polished bright granite tiles can become the focal point of any room, and add richness to your overall design. An example of polished tile can be seen below.
Honed granite tiles are the matte alternative to polished ones: all the beauty, just without the glossy feel. Honed finishing is a popular option in high traffic areas because it is less likely to show evidence of wear over time.
Flamed granite is treated in extremely high temperatures that cause the grains in the stone to burst and change colors. The final product of that process is rougher in texture and more muted in color, making flamed granite tiling a bold choice for outdoor projects.
