Natural stone materials have been used for thousands of years. Stone flooring was once a product only available to those who could splurge on lavish home designs. Due to its popularity over the years and efficiencies in the manufacturing process, stone tiles are now more widely accessible. Stone tile brings the colors and texture of nature to our homes and adds a quality and warmth to a room that’s not possible with any other material.
Stone materials can come in many different varieties such as marble, granite, slate, flagstone, travertine, and limestone. We recommend speaking with one of our flooring specialists to discern which type of stone flooring makes sense for your space.
Stone is an excellent thermal conductor during the winter. Stone tiles absorb and release heat, reducing the need to use heaters and helps lower utility bills. Stone tile flooring is one of the most sustainable flooring products because it is made of natural materials that do not require as many harsh chemicals as you would see in carpeting or laminate flooring.
Natural stone has been used for centuries in castles and monuments. Stone artifices can last for hundreds of years and stone tile flooring is no exception. Stone flooring lasts longer than carpet, and when the right stone has been chosen for the correct purpose, it does not crack easily. If a stone tile does sustain damage, it can usually be easily buffed out. When properly maintained, natural stone tile flooring can last a lifetime.
Stone tiles give homes a luxurious, timeless quality. More and more homeowners are opting for stone flooring installations beyond just their kitchens and bathrooms. They are bringing stone flooring into their living rooms, bedrooms, as well as outdoor areas. Stone tiles instantly give a room an expensive look, opens up space, and adds a natural, organic touch. And of course, homeowners gain a boost in their property value with stone flooring.
Each stone tile is unique. Natural stone tiles will vary in texture, color, shading, density, and markings with each lot. The unique characteristics of each stone tile is a large part of the appeal for many homeowners.
