3 Popular Types of Natural Stone, Lihue, Hawaii

Natural stone is a popular choice for kitchen and bathroom flooring, offering a wide variety of colors and patterns that make any room unique. The best option for your renovation project depends on not only your aesthetic desires, but also the floor’s function and the kind of maintenance you’re able to perform over the years. Kauai’s leading importer of floor tiles, Pacific Tile Imports, will explain some of the most popular types of natural stone below.

Here are three popular natural stone options you can get from Lihue’s leading source for affordable and high-quality floor tiles:

  • natural-tile-slate-Lihue-HIMarble: As the chosen medium of artists throughout history, marble always looks timeless. If you choose this option, regularly sweep away surface debris to keep it from scratching and never use acidic cleaners. Since marble is porous, many homeowners seal their marble floors. Marble is frequently used for hallways and foyers.

  • Travertine: This extremely porous material is often processed to fill its holes and then polished into a smooth surface. It is very durable, but care must be taken to keep it from absorbing water. It is also incredibly versatile, being used not only for floors but backsplashes, countertops, and decorative surfaces as well. Travertine is an excellent choice for your hallway or living space if you prefer a classic or rustic look and are willing to perform preventative maintenance.

  • Slate: Another versatile stone that’s been used since antiquity, slate has been bouncing back in popularity. When using slate floor tiles, you can choose color blends and textures reaching across the spectrum, including varieties in lavender, rust, and green. Having both outdoor and indoor applications, slate is strong enough to be used for roofs as well as floor tiles.
