Stone coverings for walls and floors have always been popular, seen as opulent, natural stone adds an extra layer of luxury to any interior room. Traditionally stone has been expensive to buy, difficult to install correctly and maintain, and has been beyond most peoples budget, however, improvements in porcelain manufacturing now mean that ultra-realistic stone finishes can now be made in real stone sizes for a fraction of the price of real stone. Our Vario mixed stone effect porcelain is one of the latest of these type of real-stone look tiles, suitable as both a wall and a floor tile Vario features an authentic stone design imitating the striking patterns which occur when stone tiles are cut from quarried blocks. Perfect for bathroom walls the tile can be used to create a spa looking space and the grey shades make no commitment to colour enabling a quick easy makeover by changing accessories. Equally well suited to floors in open space living areas where the tiles large format 400x800mm size means there are fewer grout lines and the stone look patterns really come into their own giving a visually striking backdrop to any room in the home. Other than the huge savings on offer, by using a porcelain stone effect tile you have the advantage that porcelain is far better suited for use with underfloor heating, as a manufactured product the consistency of the tiles body makes it far more stable than real stone, and a better solution if underfloor heating is being considered.
