Stone floor tiles works well with just about any style you're trying to create

Stone floor tiles are available in different surface texture, from shiny and sleek polished tiles that are slippery when wet to honed ones. The key to achieving a professional finish is to plan the job from beginning to end before you even buy your tile.
Not all stone tiles are expensive, slate can cost as little as ceramic, but custom orders are costly. Slate also comes in irregular shapes, so they're great if you want to create a rustic look.
Stone floor tiles are no more difficult, and frequently less time-consuming, to install than wall tiles. Most tile suppliers carry a wide selection to mix and match tiles to suit your design. When selecting tiles for your floor, be certain they were made for that purpose.
Terracotta is made of low-density natural clay fired at low temperatures. Floor tiles are thicker than wall tiles, so they can withstand the pressures exerted upon the floor.
Stone floor tiles can be applied over concrete floors and, with careful preparation and proper adhesives, can be applied over existing resilient or ceramic tiles. Various types of adhesives and grouts are available.
Your tile dealer can provide advice on the type to use. You can experiment with the size, color, shape, and texture of tiles to create different patterns.
