Thus, constructing a dream house is no longer a dream and converts your dream into reality by using these stones at the time of construction.
Now the question that comes in our mind at the time of construction is: which stone is better? Let’s discuss about the most commonly used stones: marble, granite and tiles.
Marble: Marble stone is easily available in the market and used for flooring and wall decoration. The nature of marble is dense, sound and hard as it come from rocks and is 10-15 feet in length, 5-8 feet in width and 10-20 mm in thickness. The slabs get cut before selling in the market. Depending upon the marble, it is more expensive than granite and tiles and heavy in weight. It is considered as a style symbol and used to make monuments and sculptures that are enough to prove its durability.
Granite: Granite stone is more attractive and durable when compared with marble. It is tough and hard in nature as it comes from igneous rocks. Little polishing gives more shine on the granite. Today, granite becomes a necessity to construct modular kitchen as it is available in various colors and texture. Granite is used on wall decoration, granite flooring, stairs, pathway, corridors, counters etc. It gets easily maintained and re-polished to retain the shine.
Tiles: Tiles are known for its durability, slippery, scratch and strain free nature. It comes in various styles, patterns and colors and used to decorate the kitchen wall, flooring, entry gates and bathroom wall of the house. Tiles are available for rough and shining surfaces and can be maintained by simply swiped or mobbed. Granite and marble are also available in the form of tiles.
All the above stones are different in their characteristics and can be used accordingly. They provide beauty and elegance to our house when used in an appropriate place and provide multiple benefits.
