How to Add the Salt and Pepper Look to Your Decor

Salt and pepper are essential condiments used in food preparation. Any dish without salt and pepper will taste bland. 

They complement each other well and, as part of table etiquette, they are always passed together. The use of salt and pepper together dates back to the 17th century, when the French chefs discovered they are the only condiments which do not overpower the taste of food. 

Over the years, the salt and pepper combination also developed as a subtle but elegant look. For example, some people love the salt and pepper look for their hair. The look is also popularly used for home decor, especially for flooring. A variety of granite tiles are available in the salt and pepper look.

Along with stunning looks, the tiles take functionality to a new level.

While the spectacular appearance resembling the natural stone will grab your attention, the tile has much more to offer. Granite tiles are resistant to stains, smudges and scratches.

Most of Orientbell Tiles’ granite tiles are made of vitrified material. Hence, there is no doubt regarding the strength of the tiles. Vitrified tiles are one of the most durable and robust tiles available in the market. The tiles can withstand heavy wear and tear. The tiles also have a low rate of water absorption, which will prevent water leakages and enable the tile to last longer.
