Natural Stone Floor Tiles

Mar 21, 2018

Among flooring materials, none is more elegant and luxurious than natural stone. The term "natural stone" refers to a variety of mountain-born mineral substances that stand in contrast to any synthetic or manufactured stone products. Common natural stone flooring includes Basalt, marble, limestone, travertine, granite, and sandstone—each of which has slightly different properties. It's important to understand the characteristics of the type of stone flooring tile you are purchasing in order to determine whether it is appropriate for a specific location.

 

Benefits of Using Natural Stone Flooring

There are many aesthetic and practical reasons why natural stone flooring can be a good choice: 

·         Each piece of stone is a unique creation of the earth, making every flooring application one of a kind. Every floor is entirely unique.

·         The mountain-born qualities of the stone can help to give living spaces a direct and eternal connection to the natural world, unlike any other building material. 

·         While there is some debate about the ecological impact of quarrying and transporting stone materials, the tiles themselves are natural, nonpolluting, eco-friendly pieces. Purchasing stones which were acquired locally can cut down on the environmental impact of transport.
