Advances in technology allow manufacturers to create ceramic tile with any look, including natural looks such as stone, marble, granite, slate, terra cotta, wood, and more.

Whereas different natural materials may have varying levels of durability or suitability for specific applications, you always know what you’re getting with ceramic tile. Ceramic tile is resistant to water, fading, and freeze and thaw cycles, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Tile also makes maintenance easy, with stain, scratch, and bacteria resistance. On cleaning day, you can relax knowing that you just need to sweep and wipe your tile with water.

Your natural-looking tile options are as diverse as nature itself, so explore our natural tile ideas below to start dreaming up the perfect tile for your project.
