Why are Granite Paving Tiles So Popular?

Whether you’re shopping for indoors, outdoors, or even your kitchen and bathroom, there is no denying that granite is incredibly popular at the moment. Known for their incredible durability and resilience, granite paving tiles are the perfect combination of functionality and beauty. If you’re considering these tiles for your outdoor area, either for the pool, patio, or driveway, this list shows why they’ve gained so much popularity in recent years. They are definitely a stone worth having in your home.

  • Durable

    As we’ve said, one of the best things about granite paving tiles is their impressive durability. No matter what you intend on using it for, granite can take a lot of abuse without showing any wear. Because of this, it’s especially good for high traffic areas like walkways and driveways, and it can even be stain resistant when properly sealed – so you don’t have to worry about oil spills from your barbeque or car.

  • Low Maintenance

    Once properly sealed – which should happen around the same time that they are laid, your pavers are incredibly easy to clean. Depending on the traffic they see and the general amount of dust and dirt which accumulates in the area, you’ll only need to give them a pressure clean about every twelve months to keep them looking great.

  • Complementary

    If you’re worried that granite tiles won’t suit your home, fear not! Granite comes in a range of beautiful grey shades which are sure to compliment any home. Ash is ideal for a Hamptons style houses due to its light colour, while Fantasy and Storm look great in contemporary homes. For a darker finish, consider Ebon, it’s perfect for creating a crisp, moody ambiance. Talk to our friendly team if you want our advice on which stone will look best in your home.

  • Eco Friendly

    These days, it isn’t uncommon for choices to be made based on their environmental impact. The good news is, if you’re concerned about the impact of these pavers, then you don’t have to be! As a natural stone, there are no chemicals that go into its creation – unlike concrete pavers, which are often used instead. Also, given its longevity, you won’t need to be replacing them every few years either!

  • Many Uses

We’ve already mentioned paving and driveways, but you’d be surprised to know you can use it around your pool, as it’s a great non-slip surface.
