Natural Stone Tiles

"Because natural stone comes from nature it can withstand the elements," says Joseph. That makes it a great choice for outdoor flooring like walkways, outdoor kitchens or around the pool. While almost any natural stone can withstand the elements, slate often is preferred over choices like travertine or marble because of its texture, which is less slippery. Though stone can survive drastic temperature swings, grout cannot. Those who live in chilly climates will have to swap out the typical mortar for cement or dry gravel. Design by Jamie Durie
