Adding natural stone to your home is a great way to create luxury, increase property value, and enhance your home’s style. When you search for natural stone, however, you may be confused as to the difference between a natural stone slab and a natural stone tile.
Well we’re here to settle the confusion once and for all!
Natural stone tiles are much like regular tiles. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they are intended to be laid out in a grid one by one with grout in between each tile to hold it in place.
Natural stone slabs, on the other hand, are large single blocks of stone that are carefully cut based on the precise measurements of the surface area that they are meant to cover. This makes for a continuous look with minimal seams and easier cleaning.
Natural stone tiles are often use for flooring or as decoration, while slabs are usually reserved for countertops, fireplace surrounds, and other areas that would look best with a single, solid surface.
