But Has Zero Maintenance

Tile that looks like natural stone is the perfect choice for homes that need the life-proof power of porcelain but crave luxury style. If you worry that everyday life at your house will limit your design choices, stone-look tile begs to differ.

Stone Look with the Perks of Ceramic and Porcelain

The top benefits of stone look tile are durability and clean-ability. Natural stone may require some added effort and time to maintain and care for, ceramic and porcelain practically take care of themselves. A tile floor doesn’t budge in the face of a happening party, winter slush, or moving furniture—all things you might think twice about with other surfaces.

Another perk you get with porcelain tile is TruEdge™-- a cut edge that removes much of the variable-ness that can make tile difficult to work with. With exact edges, you don’t have to have as wide of a grout joint to make up the difference. Your floor gets that smooth, more seamless look.

Natural Stone Look-Alikes

The technology is good enough these days that you might have to take a much closer second look to know that a tile isn’t stone. Daltile’s patent-pending technology, Reveal Imaging® is a state-of-the-art digital printing process that produces realistic color, veining, and detail born from actual stone scans. Each tile is a bit different from the one next to it—similar to the variations of natural stone.

Porcelain tile that looks like stone is available in larger tile sizes—something that might become cost prohibitive with other surfaces. Larger tiles give your design that contemporary look that’s redefining how designers use tile in all kinds of spaces.

Favorite Stone-Look Tiles

Daltile has several tile collections that look like stone, but here are a few customer favorites that offer you gorgeous natural stone looks with the ease of ceramic and porcelain.

Delegate™ and Diplomacy™ were recently added to the Stone Attache™ collection and both bring unique stone looks to the portfolio that have that wow-factor you want for your design.

Porcelain Delegate mimics a unique slate with diagonal veins. The nearly-black option has excellent visual texture that makes it hard to differentiate from natural stone.

Diplomacy, a porcelain tile mimics Belgian bluestone that is an up-and-coming stone in the eyes of designers. The highlight and lowlights in the varied coloring create detailed movement that’s hard to match without it being the real deal.

Slate Attaché™ is a glazed porcelain tile in smooth, contemporary colors and classic natural stone graining and cleft lines.
