The wonderful thing about having your own house is that you get to decorate it and design it any way that you want. You get to choose what color scheme you use. You get to choose what decorations you use and you get to decide what kitchen tiles you use. With granite tiles you’re going to get something elegant, stylish and still in the price range for most people looking at high quality.
The Color Options on Granite Tiles
The colors for granite tiles are beyond even your imagination. There’s just about anything and everything that you can get because the stones can always be colored or dyed but in most cases you’re going to find stone colors in shades of grey and tan. You may find some in whites, reds or even black that will give even more accent options to your kitchen.
With these types of tiles you can choose to use only one shade or you can mix and match shades with different patterns. Keep in mind that, because this is a type of stone, it’s generally going to have differences even if the ones you choose are all supposed to be the same. After all, these tiles are considered ‘natural’ and therefore will have flecks, streaks, speckles and a whole lot more running all the way through to give each piece a unique look.
The Pricing Options on Tiles
Granite isn’t the cheapest of accent pieces for your kitchen but it’s also not near the most expensive. Typical options run between $10 to $40 per square foot and those tiles can be used on the floor or walls to give them a more unique look. At that price you can afford to use them as a small accent or even to use them throughout an entire room.
If you’re looking for a large slab that you can use for countertops you’ll find those to be a bit more expensive but no less varied when it comes to the colors and styles. You can choose from different finishes, and even edges but you’ll spend somewhere between $50 and $60 a square foot on average for these larger slabs.
Your Room Style
So just what are granite tiles going to do for your room? Well, they’re likely going to make it look more elegant and sleek, though not all granite tiles are created equally.
