Q: Are limestone tiles a good choice?
A buddy of mine just redid a bathroom in his house and installed limestone tiles. I really like the look. Would limestone tiles be a good choice for my bathroom? How durable are they? What's the downside? How expensive are they? Thanks.
Limestone and other natural stone tiles are a very popular choice right now. There may be a few drawbacks however depending on your lifestyle and who will be occupying the bathroom. For example, limestone can be fairly soft and dropping a heavy object on the tile may result in breaking the tile. Also, limestone is very porouos and will require regular sealing to minimize the chance of staining. So, if two adults will be using this bathroom and you are ok with keeping the tiles clean and sealed, limestone should be a fine choice. I would however discourage the use of limestone or slate in a shower stall. Cleaning soap scum, etc from these tiles is no fun.
