By MPG Stone Subscribe to RSS | June 26th 2012 | Views:

Now that it is summer, you may have some renovation projects to work on. Perhaps one of them is putting a back splash in the kitchen or updating the look of your fireplace. Whatever the case may be, you will want to consider choosing ledge stone tiles to complete the project because of the many advantages they have.

What Are Ledge Stone Tiles?

Typically, ledge stone is used for decoration purposes, such as back splash on a kitchen wall or around a fireplace. These stones are designed to lie horizontally and often give a modern look to any room. Many colors are available to choose from and even sizes and shapes. Such tiles are a bit on the expensive side; however, there are many home-improvement stores that supply ledge stone tiles in their most basic form so that they are at a reasonable cost. More enhanced tiles can be purchased online or specially ordered at a home-improvement store.

The Advantages of Using Ledge Stones

One of the main reasons homeowners choose this tile when redecorating a wall is because of the easy installation. The tiles lie horizontally, leaving very little room for error and these tiles are often placed in a way that overlaps one another, so it masks small imperfections. The installation process may become messy, depending on if you go with the mortar route, but it's well worth it in the end because the finished look of ledge stone tiles is absolutely stunning.

Another advantage is the availability of the tiles. Although most home-improvement stores may only carry a certain selection, there are many different styles and brands to choose from online. Prices will vary according to what tile style you choose, but the typical price range per square footage is between $2.00 and $4.00, so when it comes down to it, renovating a wall in your home will be a usual home decoration cost.

This tile is also versatile because it can be used for indoor or outdoor decorating. It is becoming more popular in today’s society to place ledge stone tiles inside to give the home a modern, updated look. Also, homeowners are choosing to place this tile indoors because of the carefree maintenance it has. As long as you apply it correctly, following basic stone laying procedures, ledge stone tiles will last a very long time.

For your next renovation project that includes adding new wall materials, then definitely choose ledge stone tiles to complete the look. Not only will it give off a modern and fresh, updated look, but it will also increase the home’s value, which is never a bad thing!
