    Ever compared a scratch on natural stone with a scratch on vitrified tile, timeline and space almost remaining the same?

    Just because a vitrified tile is easy to lay doesn’t mean it is easy to enjoy. Oh the gloss, that’s so TV-like.

    First they demand big big natural stone slabs, granite slabs, and then they demand ‘top’ quality, and then they funnily get down to bargaining for the lowest prices. Understandable since the quantities are often huge. But the thing is it is natural stone.

    Big slabs
    Should be top quality
    Should be lowest priced!
    What poetry!

    ‘Big building business’ has an issue. They behave like government purchase departments. Lowest quote, highest quality. Now where have you found that? And they themselves often struggle to lay down the parameters or even develop the ‘eye’ to judge whether some piece of stone is great or not.

    Taj Mahal doesn’t have the greatest quality of white stone. What it does have is the highest quality of craftsmanship.

    Intriguing Intersection 

    When colors and repetition and irregularity intersect

    And since I find irregular natural stone magical, I think this is a great idea. Have a block of irregular looking granite paving stones with different colors and then repeat that block over and over. Fair amount of intrigue and fair bit of ease in laying. Very very doable.

    Fluid landscaping 

    Of course, for a mighty majority it’s a mighty luxury to have such space in this part of the world. There’s no space means there’s no land means there’s no landscaping.

    And yet there are the lucky ones who do have such a space. What do they do? They slab it. They slab it with rectangles. Nowadays, with huge rectangles. And somehow the machiners are improving their ability to slice the rocks into huge rectangles.

    I haven’t had the chance to be in very many huge bungalows and huge spaces, but I’ve seen some. And the use of natural stone slabs is not one bit pleasing I must say.

    In the above picture, interestingly, they are slabs but not rectangles. Endearing work! Would love to spend a lot of time doing nothing much on those two chairs. Find a wealthy uncle, a lucky cousin.

    For such landscaping in Ahmedabad, you know we can help…

    Shapes of Tile or Slab 

    That’s Black Granite in irregular shapes

    When choosing granite or other stone for flooring or paving, what really matters? It seems to me currently 2 major points play a role while making a choice:

    1. The color of stone
    2. The natural pattern of stone surface

    Surprising when I pay just a little more attention.

    Why isn’t ‘shape’ of tile or stone not considered at all! Typically it’s rectangle! Or sometimes, square. Why?

    The variations of natural stone coupled with and cut in different shapes can produce a magic-like floor. No, I’m not talking about just outdoors or for landscaping. I’m talking about indoors too. Here, have a look at this indoor floor:

    Plenty of variations and colors in Indian granite and other natural stone to create a floor like that. If you want to execute something like that in Ahmedabad…

    Ceramic, Glazed & Vitrified Tiles 

    Over the years we’ve heard and bought these tiles on different occasions and often contrasted them with natural stone tiles. What’s the difference? Here’s a nice little write-up explaining what’s what. Am posting a screenshot below:

    What’s the difference?

    Nothing ages as beautifully as natural stone. Sure, natural stone takes a little while to lay. And patience is in very short supply!

    “Why slab it when you can stile it!”

    Increasingly now, and over a long time, I observe that natural stone tiling trumps natural stone slabbing.

    Of course, it doesn’t mean that all floor needs to be tiled instead of slabbed. We find plenty of floors that are a combination of tiles and slabs and they look good.

    But over last many years, so many folks have slabbed their floors edge to edge. As years pass by that doesn’t look as lovely, especially in smaller spaces, though always lovelier and more pleasing than the ‘vitrified’ tiles.

    Multi-color Flooring 

    Multi-stone multi-color outdoor flooring. Would you ever get bored with this? This is for eternity. And it shall grow on the residents as it ages.

    If you desire to execute such a floor in Ahmedabad or (elsewhere too if you are willing to make equal effort as we do), then we can definitely help.

    Asymmetric Paving Stone 

    I love this arrangement. Aysmmetric and never boring! While typically such stone and pattern may be thought appropriate for outdoor laying, imagine such a pattern for indoor flooring. Endlessly interesting! Of course, for indoors, the type of stone and surface finish and method of laying may change.
