Price of natural stone flooring

I’ve noticed the prices of natural stone tiles and flooring can vary greatly. Why would this be the case and does price usually mean quality or does it really depend? How can I best judge when a product is of good quality, regardless of the cost? I’d like to find some high quality examples so that I can consider them and weigh up my options for a new installation of tiles/flooring in different rooms throughout my home.

"Hi Bill they do vary in price and doesn’t mean the more you pay the better quality there are so many different styles of tiles on the market now and from my experience tiles that say for walls and floor are just as good I’ve fitted fair few and it all comes down to what the floors are like as I would recommend a self-levelling compound first then tile on top

Many thank lee"

"Hi Bill,
Lee is right...make sure the floor is level before anything. I’d certainly consult with a reputable Tiling Co and get their advice based on the space you want to tile.
They’ll advise on tile size, depth, levels and cut quality based on the room size.
I’m often surprised at the tiles a customer has bought, and how they won’t work in certain settings due to factors obvious to us as tradesmen, but not so obvious to a customer.

Hope this helps?
