Marble & Granite

Marble is the material of choice for builders and artists worldwide. Marble communicates a sense of style, elegance and sophistication. Natural marble contains inherent variations in color and physical properties. The colors and traits of marble offer a nearly limitless range of applications. Unlike other materials whose appeal diminishes with age, the allure of marble is timeless. For many interior and exterior applications granite is the most popular natural stone. It is incredibly durable and maintains its rich beauty despite weather, constant traffic or other deteriorating elements. Granite is available in a wide selection of colors and textures offering countless design possibilities. Berkeley Design Center carries a range of colors, finishes and sizes of tiles from many places around the world.

Travertine & Limestone

Characterized by earth tones and natural colors, limestone, travertine and sandstone offer a softer look than marble and granite. They do not distract, but subtly enhance the ambiance wherever they appear. Tasteful and elegant, these stones provide a subdued background for a variety of architectural styles and interior decors. BDC carries a wide range of colors, sizes and finishes from many places around the world.

Basalt & Bluestone

"Basalt is a fine grained igneous rock. It makes up most of the ocean floor and is the most common type of lava. Bluestone on the other hand is described as a Blue-Grey sandstone containing much clay used for building and paving and also considered in Australia as a blue variety of Basalt." Dictionary.com. Both are suitable options for interior and exterior applications and tend to give a more modern feel to a space. Sealing is recommended for natural stone tiles, both before and after installation.

Pebbles

"Our pebble mesh tile line harmonizes gracefully with a multiplicity of other design elements: natural to techno-modern, in- or outdoors. The collections work well for floors, walls, ceilings, fireplaces, walkways, borders and decorative accents. As natural material, pebble tiles yield to water, and any place water flows, including bathrooms, showers, spas, kitchens, gardens, pools, waterfalls and fountains" (Solistone).

Metallic Mosaics

"A modern alternative to glass or stone, metal mosaics are provocative without compromising performance. During manufacturing, stainless steel is then extruded into freeform shapes and wrapped around a resin backing for solid construction. As a field tile, metal mosaics create a spectacular reflective surface. As an accent, they create visual interest to a simple wall space." (Solistone)
