Need help to pick flooring for ensuite/dressing area: Porceline or Natural Stone?
October 3, 2012 in Design Dilemma
Hi all - I'm in the mids of choosing either porceline tiles that look like travetine for my ensuite/dressing area or actual natural travetine stone tiles. We are putting in a wet room and don't want to use mosaics and our contractor said natural stone would be better as it would cut better and "hug" the wet area better as porceline is very sharp when cut and if not grouted properly, can cut. My question though is maintenance. I'm concered that natural stone requires a lot of maintenance and over time would have to be resealed. Also I am having underfloor heating - which would be a better meterial to keep heat?
