Pebble tiles are becoming a popular alternative to porcelain tile and concrete finishes. People love the versatility it offers, using pebble tiles outdoors, in the bathroom, shower, or even for a pebble stone finish in a swimming pool.
I mean, what’s not to love- they look stunning and are all-natural. It’s the perfect durable surface that immediately puts you in a state of zen.
Plus, pebble tiles offer several benefits…
- Low maintenance
- Easy to install
- Many patterns, colors, and textures
It’s no wonder people are raving about pebble tile flooring. It makes you wonder what the catch is…if any.
The thing is, pebble tiles are unique in that the finish is not smooth. You are treading upon several, smooth raised stones that might feel strange and for some, uncomfortable.
While there are people who don’t quite like the feel, others love it and compare the feeling of walking on pebble stone tiles to a heavenly foot massage.
Either way, it’s all about your preferences…and the good news is, even if rounded pebbles aren’t your thing, there’s another option for you.
Introducing sliced pebble tiles
If you love the all-natural look of pebble tiles, but can’t get past how they feel against your feet, then sliced pebble tiles offer the same stunning look without the raised feel.
Simply put, the pebbles are literally sliced in half to produce a flat, leveled tile that is smooth and easy to walk on.
Just like pebble tile flooring, sliced pebble tiles come in all different colors, patterns, and sizes. They are easy to install and can be used just about anywhere you want- indoors and outdoors.
You can even install these pebble stone tiles yourself, making it a cost-effective option for redoing a patio floor or pebble backsplash in your kitchen.
