Armstrong Alterna

I professed my love for stone tile many years ago, deciding my home and life would not be complete without the raw, pure beauty of 1000-year-old stone under my feet every day. All of this was true until I laid eyes on Alterna premium tile. I couldn’t believe it wasn’t real stone. I examined every inch of the Alterna tile sample, still doubting what was in front of me. But the texture, depth, color variation, warmth and comfort sold me. It was just like my beloved stone tile, offering natural beautiful characteristics, but at a lower cost, with easier installation and lower maintenance than natural stone tile. Oh, and did I mention the coordinating grout colors? This is one innovative floor!
