Everyone has his or her own cleaning style. You may be meticulous about keeping your bathroom clean and keep a squeegee in your shower. Or you may be the type of person that cleans once a week and needs tile that won’t show every stray hair. Whatever works for you is fine with us! But it shouldn’t prohibit you from getting the look you want.

Do you love the look of natural stone but are worried about upkeep? Believe it or not, natural stone doesn’t require a ton of extra maintenance.  Normal cleaning is all that is required for most stone maintenance.  If you love the look, it is a wonderful addition to your home.

Adding stone trim to porcelain tile is a great way to add the charm of natural stone while enjoying the ease of porcelain tile. We don’t live in an “either/or” world! Mixing different tile materials in the same room creates a unique style that is all your own.

Love the look of Travertine but you might be concerned about water areas in your home? Check out our Regis Series, which is a porcelain tile that looks like Travertine, in areas like your shower surround and trim with Torreon Crown to enhance that look of natural stone with little maintenance that only porcelain offers.

Our Eclipse Porcelain tile just begs to be paired with marble trim or a natural stone mosaic for a more modern look.

Adding stone trim to existing porcelain or ceramic tiles is a great way to update your look without completely redoing your space, too. What a great way to freshen your look with a quick project that can be done over a weekend!

These days, natural stone is getting mixed with porcelain, glass and metal tiles for a fresh look. So don’t be afraid to mix it up to create a tile look that is uniquely you!
