bring your Interior to life with unique surfaces:
The finish materials you use for your interior surfaces can become some of the most important focal points. Using a carefully selected stone for interior floors and walls, and other surfaces, can add the unique tactile effect that exudes beauty, sophistication, and luxury. Take advantage of our carefully curated stone options to introduce a new standard.
Lava stone can be used for flooring and wall surfaces, both for indoor and outdoor applications.
Lava stone is a natural stone with colors based on the magna found in particular volcanoes. This will depend on the minerals in the lava. We offer dark blacks to medium shade grays, as we find they offer the best visual appeal. Some tiles show contrasting colors, creating a more rustic aesthetic.
Lava stone can exhibit mild color variation from slab to slab, so selecting specific tiles is important.
Grain & Visual Pattern:
Lava stone’s visual variations allow for a range of aesthetics. It can be smooth and refined, or textured with a rugged appearance. It can also be heated for custom silk screen patterns, or etched for a patterned tile look.
Rustic looking lava stone can be found with holes, tracks, and streaks.
Carefully selecting the pattern of the lava stone for your project is recommended to find your tailored look.
Texture and Finish:
Lava stone has a naturally rough texture due to its holes. Therefore, it is suitable for:
- a naturally aged finish
- a rustic finish with a rough texture
- a brushed finish
The holes in lava stone can also be reduced by heating the stone in an oven, providing a smooth and even texture, making it great for:
- a satin finish
- a light brush finish
- a smooth, mechanically sanded finish
However, due to the many different colors and pattern anomalies found with different stones, the right finish will depend on the lava stone tiles you choose.
We believe when the building industry sources and manufactures building materials with sustainability in mind, we all live in a healthier world, and we want to do our part. Lava stone tiles are ecologically friendly. They do not contain any VOCs, and are better than their non eco-friendly counterparts.
