  • for the 200 mm tile between 350-600 mm;
  • for the 300 mm tile between 450-700 mm;
  • for the 400 mm tile between 450-800 mm.

Care instructions

Natural stone is a relatively delicate and sensitive material and any objects harder than the stone can scratch its surface. The surface of the stone can be cleaned either with pure water or special cleaning agents.

In case of interior use and not very damp rooms, it is recommended to wax the stone. The layer of wax will protect the surface from getting dirty. Here you can get a more detailed overview of caring for natural stone.
