Choosing stone and tile for the home can be one of the most enjoyable parts of the homebuilding and renovation processes. The plans are in place and it’s time to select the look and feel for the interior’s floors, walls, countertops and backsplashes, and the exterior’s lanai flooring, walls and siding. With so many options available for materials and colors, industry leader Kevin Nip of Selective Stone offers advice for homeowners, starting with budget and aesthetic. Different materials have different costs, but a similar look can be achieved, he explains. For example, porcelain tile is available in patterns of natural stone, like marble, but for a lower cost. The depth and character, however, cannot be replicated, so an investment in natural stone should increase the value of a home. Here’s a look at three different solid surface materials, all of which are available from Selective Stone in Honolulu.

Natural Stone

Natural stone is considered a high-end upgrade for the home. No two slabs of natural stone are exactly alike. Selective Stone stocks a wide variety of granite, quartzite and marble slabs, so visit its Honolulu showroom to explore options for your home.

Quartz

Today’s top choice for countertops is quartz, an engineered material from natural quartzite. It’s nonporous, making it stain-resistant and simple to maintain. It’s available in seemingly limitless colors and patterns, many of which mimic the look of natural stone.

Ceramic and Porcelain Tile

Whether applied as flooring, wall or even within a swimming pool, spa or shower, ceramic and porcelain tiles are luxurious options. Many finishes are anti-slip, a wonderful safety upgrade for homes with children and older adults.
