Marble is a metamorphic natural stone that projects a timeless and classic look for any home. Mediterranean offers a variety of marble from all over the world. These beautiful stones afford our design team a virtually endless pallet of color from which to work. Mediterranean carries a collection of marble finished many different ways: polished, honed, brushed, antiqued, and tumbled to name a few. Unique sizes and shapes work in a variety of applications.
Granite is an igneous natural stone that is extremely durable, stain and scratch resistant that is recommended for virtually any use. There is an excellent selection of colors, and the strength of granite makes it ideal for commercial installations as well as heavy use residential floors.
Onyx is a typically translucent natural stone that is a calcium carbonate. It is smooth stone that is available in a variety of unique colors and few different finishes. Onyx will certainly add an air of elegance to any home.
Travertine is a crystalized, partially morphed limestone. A sub classification of limestone, travertine is formed in the presence of underground hot springs. There are a number of finishes available as well as two different cuts. “Crosscut” which is done parallel to the natural plane of the stone creating a smooth, cloudy vein appearance and “vein-cut” which is done perpendicular to the natural plane producing a linear vein appearance.
Limestone is a sedimentary natural stone predominantly composed of calcium carbonate. Known for its consistency and durability, limestone can be used on interior and exterior surfaces. Both Medtile showrooms display limestone floor pads in a few different environments. Whether used in a kitchen, bathroom, foyer, or poolside, limestone enhances the beauty of your home.
Pebbles are individually sorted to insure only using pebbles displaying the highest quality, size, color and flatness. These small, medium, and large premium pebbles are placed in an interlocking shape to create a pebble tile of unmatched consistency and quality. On a bathroom or shower floor, pebbles provide a subtle massage for the feet. Available in full sized sheets or as a border, the Mediterranean vignette displays show the versatility of this wonderful natural stone.
