Laying options for natural stone tilesFirst of all, the tiles should be carefully examined. Since there are tiles in the natural stone area that are slightly translucent due to the material, this must be checked beforehand. Only white tile adhesive is suitable for such tiles, as it does not detract from the visual effect of the natural stone tiles. Conventional tile adhesive can also be used for opaque tiles. The type of installation depends above all on the pattern and size of the natural stone tiles. These can be installed in different composite systems. If the pattern and color deviations of the tiles are very large and large and clearly visible areas are to be laid with floor or wall tiles, there are three options. On the one hand, the natural stone tiles can be mixed wild, laid according to color and brightness or according to grain. The most beautiful sight is usually created by laying after grain. However, this process takes the most time, so here the tiler should not be paid according to square meters, but according to hourly wages. This is the only way that floor tiles and wall tiles can be selected with the necessary calm and laid to match each other. The optical effect of the natural stone tiles wins enormously. Accordingly, more money and time should be invested in the correct and appropriate installation if the effect is to be unique and suitable.

The advantages of natural stone tiles
Maintain and clean natural stone tilesBasically, the cleaning and care of these tiles depends primarily on their surface and condition. The larger the pore size of the natural stone, the more maintenance the tiles need. Regular impregnation of the floor and wall tiles can make cleaning much easier. Above all, tiles made of natural stone are particularly sensitive to fats and oils. If the surface is not protected and if you fail to remove these stains immediately, the substances can penetrate the tiles and leave unsightly and ugly stains. The situation is similar when laying natural stone tiles. Large-pored and particularly sensitive types of stone must be impregnated before laying, otherwise the veil of the grout can hardly be removed. Basically, however, natural stone tiles are very dirt-resistant and can therefore be used without problems both indoors and outdoors.
