Granite is a popular material, preferred for its toughness and durability in various applications. Granite is not only the hardest building stone but is incredibly durable as well. Granite tiles are resistant to weathering, capable of taking mirror polish, and come in great patterns and colours.

Granite tiles deliver several benefits in wall cladding and flooring applications. Granite is amenable to cutting and shaping, can be made into thin or thick slabs and is durable. All these characteristics separate granite from marble, travertine, limestone and Italian marble tiles. Being stain resistant, granite is easy to maintain. Granite’s colourful patterns also make it difficult to notice a dirty floor.

Available from RMS Natural Stone & Ceramics, granite is ideal for bench tops and counters in kitchens, flooring all over the house, elegant trimmings, bookends and even table tops.
