One of the most common things we do at Designer Tile Plus is mix stone with tile. One of the main reasons we usually do that for is to create a focal point and to create a more richer and elegant look. When you look at your home and your neighbors homes, what do you see? You can see travertine, limestone, tile, wood, laminate, parquet, marble, and granite.  But do you see anyone mixing the two together in the floor? Probably not. I can see why you wouldn’t with woods, laminates, and parquet, but why not mix stone with porcelain and ceramic tile…

If your regular ceramic and porcelain tile are roughly the same thickness why not mix the two together? Just adding accents or inserts of stone into a ceramic and porcelain tile can add a little bit more depth and movement into a plain floor. It can also help tie everything together and give your home a more designer look. A nice tile pattern can do the same thing rather than the traditional straight lay or diagonal floor you see so much of. And even if you are, or if you want we can, just cutting down a stone to a like a 4×4 and inserting it every 20 or so tiles the look of your home can be truly unique.

If you are going with stone instead of tile instead of cutting up tile to insert into your stone floor a contrasting stone would look just perfect.
