Would you like a grout line?
Although grouting Vinyl Tile is in no way necessary, for the most realistic tile look, Mannington has introduced Adura Grout for some of their tile collections. Instead of butting the tiles edges tight, you leave a desired gap between the edges of the tile and fill it with a specially designed acrylic grout. No other grout can be used with Vinyl Tiles besides the premixed Adura Grout, as its properties make it flexible and durable enough for Vinyl Tile.

Natural Stone Tiles
Stone flooring has been in use for millennia. Today, stone floors create a feeling of luxury. They can create of mood of great formality or relaxed informality, depending on the type of stone. Generally, marble floors are the most formal and flagstone floors are the most informal. The natural variation in color and pattern make stone floor tiles very beautiful, and they are very durable as well. Natural Stone tiles are very popular for living rooms, family rooms, entry ways, kitchens, bathrooms, outdoors and, just about everywhere else you can think of. There are various types of natural stone tile you can choose from such as granite, marble, limestone, travertine, slate and, many more. Below there is a short list of some types of natural stone tiles available.
Granite is a type of igneous rock that is very dense and hard. Its distinctive appearance is due to speckled minerals found within the rock, its unique veining, and the thousands of available colors. Granite is nearly impervious and, once it is polished, resists scratching. It is an excellent choice for flooring in kitchens and high-traffic areas.
Marble is a type of metamorphic rock that has rich veining and is available in a variety of colors. Marble is more porous than granite and is not recommended for kitchen flooring unless honed and then sealed on a regular basis.
Limestone is a type of sedimentary rock that offers an earthy appearance in both light and dark shades. The surface can be textured or polished smooth. Limestone is less dense than granite and marble. It can be easily stained and is also prone to scratching. It is not recommended for kitchen or high-traffic flooring applications
Travertine is a type of limestone that offers an unusual crystallized appearance with an earthy tone. Travertine is a soft, porous stone with a natural surface that has pitting or divots. A honed or polished surface can be achieved after filling the surface voids. Travertine is not recommended for kitchen floors, as it can be easily scratched and stained. Special care and surface sealing is required to maintain travertine.
Slate is a type of metamorphic rock that is extremely dense and very durable. Slate is available in darker earthy tones. The surface of slate is naturally textured unless a smooth, honed finish is achieved. Slate is an excellent choice for kitchen and high-traffic area flooring.
