Sapphire Blue Granite Tile - Polished
- free samples
Hailing from one of the world's most renowned granite regions in Southern India, there is no doubt that Sapphire Blue granite is a stone of incredible quality. Despite this, its name is somewhat deceiving. Whilst its rich and luxurious navy blue-gray bedrock is far from a disappointment, there is no doubt that its name evokes images of a marine colored stone. In reality, Sapphire Blue granite is much more versatile. Its medium to dark bedrock is littered with subtle pink-orange crystals as well as translucent quartz which, as the light shines through, hints to the stone's blueness. This intoxicatingly dark stone is wild and irregular, just how granite should be.
Granite is a great option for those who are looking to invest in their new interior design. Not only is its style timeless, but it also offers superior durability. It is a dense and hard stone and therefore is not easily scratched in the same way as some of the other stones on the market. This makes it ideal if you're looking for a vanity or countertop, areas of the home that are likely to see a higher degree of wear and tear. It's also great for flooring for this very reason.
Just like most of the design-focused granite options on the market, these tiles have been polished. This is a refinement process that removes around 1mm of the tile's surface in order to create a gorgeous shine. A polished finish offers incredible design benefits, for example, enhanced coloring. The stone's deep and dark hues are enriched, reaching their full potential. While some of the other finishes available are known for muting shades, a polished finish achieves the exact opposite.
Furthermore, a glossy shine is much easier to clean than a textured surface. There are no grooves or imperfections to catch the dirt, just a sleek and smooth surface that is easily wiped clean. With a polished finish, the stone's pores are tightened, meaning its susceptibility to staining is lowered. While you'll still need to mop up any oils or liquids fairly quickly, it's great to know that should an accident occur, you're covered.
Sapphire Blue granite is the deep and captivating stone you've been searching for. Its unique design is versatile enough to pair with a wide variety of styles, from opulent traditionalism, to contemporary and clean-lined.
Pair it with white cabinets and blue-gray walls for a modern and simplistic style. Or, emphasize its rich coloring with navy cupboards and a hint of golden metallics. This beautiful stone is easy to style and will give your interior the wow factor.
