Is limestone tile expensive?

While natural stone tiles like marble, granite, or limestone generally come with higher price tags than ceramic or porcelain tiles, the cost of a backsplash depends on several factors. Generally, limestone tiles fall within the mid-range natural stones. This makes the limestone tiles a more affordable option than marble or granite but the quality of the stone plays a huge role in the overall cost. Top-notch limestone tiles are generally more uniform in appearance and have fewer natural flaws as compared with lower-quality tiles. The size of this tile is another thing that you have to determine. Bigger and thicker limestone tiles in general are costlier than smaller ones since these require more material and work.

Modern Vertical Limestone Backsplash

While the color and material choices are important factors that define the overall aesthetic of a backsplash, different layout options can have various impacts. Tiles on vertical installation are going up and attracting our eyes toward the upper ceilings, making the whole kitchen space look bigger. This maximizes the space, especially for the kitchen with less space or a lower ceiling.

The modern and sleek appeal of a limestone backsplash is a perfect fit for this technique. For a delightful backdrop with sleek finishes, you can choose larger tiles that will bring in a feeling of seamless continuity and create a cohesive look in the kitchen. The ceiling height placement will also contribute to creating the illusion of a higher ceiling. Deciding on the grout color is the next important item on the agenda in order to form the visual outcome of the tiles. While complementary grout and tile colors create a subtle appearance, contrasting colors emphasize the pattern of the tiles and give them a more distinctive look.
