Popular stone tiles usually includes marble or granite. However, we recommend you look into slate tiles because while marble or granite tiles can look elegant and quite beautiful, they also stain easily and can be slippery. Therefore, marble and granite use should be limited to low-traffic areas so that they have more of a chance of staying clean.

Slate flooring is not as slippery or easy to stain as other types of stone flooring due to its mildly rough surface and protective sealants.

Slate flooring is available in gray, black, green, red, orange, brown and blue and often has veins of color running through the tile.
