    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.

    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…

    “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.
