Over time, flooring manufacturers have found ways to merge different materials to create innovative flooring products. For example, engineered hardwood has the look and feel of hardwood, but is more stable under humidity and temperature changes. Engineered stone tile is another example, since it combines elements of both natural stone and luxury vinyl flooring.
Could engineered stone tile be the perfect solution for your Chesterfield home? Floor Coverings International West County, MO can help you decide!
What Makes Engineered Stone Unique?
Engineered stone is comprised of limestone and non-porous vinyl. This gives the tile a strong, durable core with a more comfortable and flexible surface.
If you’ve ever complained about cold tile floors, engineered stone is a great solution. It does a better job of retaining heat and absorbing sound, and it is easier to clean and maintain than traditional stone tile. It’s also available in a wide range of styles that replicate the look of different kinds of natural stone.
Engineered stone tile works well in a variety of applications, including floors, backsplashes, shower surrounds, and more. You have the option to add grout if you like, but it’s completely up to your preference.
Maintaining Engineered Stone
Unlike traditional natural stone, engineered stone is very easy to take care of! It isn’t porous, so it doesn’t have to be sealed. You can simply sweep, mop, or vacuum it as necessary. Because of its stone core, engineered stone tile is likely to last longer than luxury vinyl tile (which is similar in appearance and feel).
