Granite is a very versatile type of floor tile that can be used in many locations commercially or residentially. Halls and foyers are a couple of the more popular places granite tile is commonly found. Granite is popular among environmentally conscious homeowners since it is a natural stone. Granite is also very durable due to its hard surface and is more moisture and stain resistant than marble. It is also relatively simple to clean. Polished granite looks very sleek and polished but is very slippery when wet. This is a serious concern because Granite is such a hard surface and slipping could cause a very severe injury.
