Granite tiles can have a wide variety of colors. Current trends in shades are available around the off-white, beige with a net return to favor natural slates which can be black and gray.
Note that true lovers of natural stones are reluctant to perform treatments that would distort the material. However, a minimum of minimum protections needed. All natural stones are porous at the start; it is therefore, after installation, to treat them with a water repellent to prevent water from entering the granite. Inside and out, it also recommends a stain treatment, as on the terrace or in the house, people receive and guests can drop fatness that would try hopelessly unprotected coating. To this must be added, in regions with severe winters, a roach protection.
There are several on the market anti stains that do not change the color of the stone and others that may increase the intensification of color products, that is to say, give it the appearance drowned (often a stone is finest wet and dry).
Indoor or outdoor floor tiling recommends bush-hammered finish (a machine that will tingle slightly granite) to reduce the phenomenon of maximum slip. In this society which markets mid to high range includes formats of all sizes from 40 × 40 to 100 × 100 through the 60 × 60 × 80 and 80; the greater the thickness is large (up to 5 to 6 cm). The larger models are often installed outdoors. Inside, if your home is equipped with a heated floor, you will be limited in size 40 × 40.
