We also carry some other, more unusual flooring and backsplash products, such as natural slate, marble, limestone, travertine, cork and DuraCeramic.
Natural slate is variable in colour and generally has an uneven surface. This uniqueness and natural beauty makes it an attractive choice for people who are looking for something a little out-of-the-ordinary. Installation is a delicate process, and is best handled by a experienced installer.
Marble, Limestone and Travertine
Marble, limestone and travertine are naturally quarried rocks which are sanded down to a very smooth surface. The natural beauty of marble has been used in architecture for thousands of years. Marble, limestone and travertine are soft materials, and they must be sealed regularly to prevent wear and deterioration.
Cork flooring is made from the bark of the cork tree. It can be harvested without killing the tree. Cork is very soft underfoot, warm to the touch and has good sound-absorbing properties. The cost of cork can be high, but the price is coming down as it gains popularity.
Bamboo is a fast growing grass with engineered-wood–like properties. Because it is very fast growing, it is less destructive from an environmental perspective.
DuraCeramic is a man-made vinyl tile (normally 15”x15”) which is not cold to the touch, is softer underfoot, and offers an alternative to porcelain and ceramic tile.
We carry a large selection of glass backsplash tiles. They can be a stunning accent to your kitchen or bathroom walls. It comes in different colours and textures, both opaque and transparent and are generally mounted on 12”x12” sheets.
