Important Factors to Consider When Selecting and Buying Stone or Tile for Your Home

Are you looking to buy stone or tile for your home? If so, what better company to talk to than a stone care expert? Much of your answer will depend on your particular style, but there are other attributes of stone that should be taken into consideration. Keep reading to learn what they are or contact Fuller Stone Care directly at 855-205-0972 to get started.


Yes, first and foremost, you should determine what you like to look at. Figure this out without taking price, durability, or anything else into consideration. Look at stone types or countertops online and determine what is most interesting to you. Allow yourself to truly dream. Even if the styles you choose turn out to cost millions of dollars and to only be available in one city in the world, you will still have a better idea of what you really get excited about.

Wear and Tear

Once you know what you like to look at, it is time to be more realistic. You should take the time to consider the foot traffic where you will be installing the tile. For example, a kitchen with constant traffic would need a much more durable stone than a second-bedroom that is only used for a few days per year.

Once you have a realistic idea of how often a particular area gets traffic, consider which stones are best for high- or low-traffic areas. You can contact Fuller Stone Care at 855-205-0972 for advice if needed.

Stain Resistance

You might fall in love with beautiful white marble, but if you install it as a kitchen counter and do not seal it, you can expect that it will become stained with every color you can imagine in just months. On the other hand, this type of marble might be a perfect accent in a bathroom. You can also have stones sealed, which makes them much more resistant to stains. This is something we can help you with.


One of the biggest mistakes a person can make when choosing tile is to start by looking at cost. Yes, the price will be an essential factor, but the goal is to first find out what you love, then find out what would work for your lifestyle, and then find the most affordable version of that vision. If you start with price, you will end up choosing something based on cost alone, and it will not be a good value if you do not love it.
