Big slabs

It’s been a trend. Bigger and bigger slabs of marble and granite for flooring. As if bigger is better. Or, bigger is better looking.

Actually watching the slabs in a huge stockyard is quite different from watching the slabs as floor amidst the enclosing walls.

In a huge stockyard, a big slab may still not look as big. In a room, a big slab may seem to exhaust the floor.

Big rectangular slabs look downright ugly. Irregular ones may still look much better. But you gotta see the small irregular slabs, in fact more in the form of flagstone, as part of floor. Unfortunately, even with so many images proliferating on the web, in the catalogues and magazines and elsewhere, it’s hard to compare different kinds of floors side by side.

Big slabs look ugly. Sure, we are not rich builders or famous architects. We are mere stone suppliers, or as they use that term in the SAP software, we are mere vendors. What do the vendors know!

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…
