Rustic is "in." As many architects, contractors and design professionals will confirm, rustic chic and modern rustic interior styles continue to make a strong showing in the residential and commercial design world. These types of interior designs employ natural materials to bring the beauty of the outdoors in while also achieving functional durability and convenience. One material that is popular for adding rustic appeal is tumbled stone tile.
Tumbled stone tiles are natural stone products that are worked in some way to bear minor imperfections for a beautiful weathered look. Like clothes in a dryer, thick pieces of marble, granite or other natural stone are literally tumbled in a large drum with other crushed stones and water to become tumbled stone tiles. The results are gorgeous stone tiles that have unique patterns and character.
Tumbled stone tiles are particularly popular for creating rustic mosaics for interesting and dynamic accent walls in homes or businesses. Let's take a look at two very different examples of tumbled stone tile mosaics.
