Marble Flooring VS Granite Flooring VS Tile Flooring

Marble Flooring

Marble is one of the most luxurious flooring option. Each slab has its own unique veins and patterns.

It provides good indoor air quality and it is scratch resistant. It lasts for ages. As, it is a high density stone, it can be used in high traffic areas.

It is a natural material with a unique appearance.It can be easily polished which makes it smooth and shiny and it is a good conductor of heat, which makes it cool during summers.

Granite Flooring

Granite flooring has become a popular and elegant choice. 

Granite has excellent hardness and anti staining properties. It is much harder and stain resistant than any other material such as marble.

Granite can bear any kind of weight which makes it strong. It is a natural stone which makes its lifespan durable and it provides a shiny polish to make it look elegant.

Tile Flooring

Tiles are artificial flooring material manufactured by firing clay at high temperatures.

There will be two types of tiles discussed here -

Ceramic Tiles

Ceramic tiles are plain clay molded in the shape of a tile and heated to a high temperature inside a kiln. The heat hardens the structure of the tiles and fuses in the color and design of the tile.

Ceramic tiles are not very strong. These tiles are also very porous and thus absorb water easily. In order to make them resistant to water they are often glazed.

Vitrified Tiles

It is the most common and recommended type of tile.

Vitrified tiles undergo a process called vitrification that makes their surface extremely water resistant. This makes the tiles hard and strong, as well as stain resistant.
