About Basalt Tiles
An igneous volcanic stone, basalt tiles are an understated and elegant choice for any interior. These tiles are available in smooth, homogeneous shades of charcoal and steel gray. Stylish yet subtle, these basalt tile mosaics are perfect for industrial, loft spaces or modern, minimalist interiors.
Formed from cooling lava, basalt is the most common volcanic rock found on Earth. It's even present throughout the entire solar system. The moon, Venus, and Mars all have high amounts of basalt.
Here at Country Floors, we offer the highest-quality basalt tiles on the market. The beauty of basalt lies in its simplicity. Our basalt has few mineral deposits with a sleek and monochromatic appearance. Furthermore, our basalt is more affordable compared to other natural stones.
Where Can I Install Basalt Tiles?
Basalt tiles suit nearly all residential and commercial interior applications because of their durability, hardness, and low maintenance. As an igneous rock, basalt is difficult to break, chip, or scratch. However, it is porous, which limits its application in submerged wet areas.
Residential & Commercial Floors
Basalt flooring suits residential entryways, living rooms, and dining rooms as well as commercial spaces. Furthermore, its low-maintenance properties make it ideal for high-traffic areas.
Residential & Commercial Walls
Our selection of basalt mosaics–including hexagon, penny round, and split face–look incredible on wall installations for both residences and businesses. Therefore, it's a great choice for creating an understated and classy statement wall.
Bathrooms & Showers
Basalt tiles are suitable for bathroom flooring and wall applications. However, since it's porous, we do not recommend most basalt tiles for shower wall and floor installations. The only exception is our bush-hammered finish basalt, which offers a non-slip surface for shower floors.
Basalt Tile Finishes
We recommend this semi-matte finish for flooring installations. Great for office spaces and lobby entrances, it creates a more casual and inviting look to any interior.
The bush-hammered finish is achieved by hammering the stone to create a highly textured surface. Its non-slip properties makes it ideal for the flooring of wet areas, like bathrooms and showers.
The chiseled basalt tile finish has a softly-textured surface with slight variation in the stone. It pairs seamlessly with industrial loft spaces.
Our multi-finish mosaic has a little bit of everything, with tiles from all of our finishes. The result is an alluring mosaic that will certainly make a statement.
