Make Your Home More Luxurious with Natural Stone
It Stands the Test of Time
Stone flooring has been used for centuries. That being said, just imagine how long a granite or quartzite flooring, material might last your family in your home!
It Comes in a Wide Selection
Currently, many different types of natural stone materials are being used as flooring. The most popular among these are limestone, slate, basalt, granite and marble, each of which have a unique texture and color.
Marble is a natural stone created from limestone or dolomite that has undergone tectonic folding, which is the intense pressure created when the plates of the earth move and press against each other. Marble is usually white, but the veining can be pretty much any color. Marble is a relatively soft or “compact” stone which makes it easier to be cut and shaped, making it the perfect flooring material.
Granite is of an igneous variety rock, meaning that it's made out of volcanic lava. This extremely hard and durable stone flooring is typically found in pink, white, and gray colors, usually with a speckled effect featuring many different colors. The toughness and attractive nature of granite make it a great option for natural stone flooring uses. Granite tends to do extremely well in high traffic and high moisture environments because of its extremely durable nature.
Slate is also metaphoric in nature, meaning that it's formed by the extreme pressure of tectonic plates, usually composed of clay or organic ash. Typically found in gray tones, slate is also found in shades of purple, green, and - very rarely - turquoise. Slate is quite durable and moisture-resistant, making it perfect for high-traffic and high-moisture areas.
