Stone flooring comes in many different sizes and looks. Because there are so many different type of stone to choose from and they all have different benefits, you are guaranteed to find the right flooring for your home.
By researching the various stone flooring types, along with their pros and cons, you can select an appropriate stone type for your project. The next step is to contact a reputed flooring company for installation, such as Shadow Wood Flooring (https://www.shadowwoodflooring.com/).
Why choose stone flooring?
The stones you can choose from completely vary and you’re guaranteed to find one in your budget zone. Options range immensely with many ranges including, but not limited to: Marble, Terrazzo, Terracotta, Wood Effect Porcelain, Porcelain, Slate and Limestone. Each of the types of stone will have a different effect on your home, so there will definitely be a choice that fits with your home.
Whether or not you intend to fit the flooring throughout your whole house, which would look absolutely incredible, you can achieve stunning looks whatever you choose.
Is it easy to clean?
Stone flooring is some of the easiest types of flooring to clean, owing to its smooth, non-porous surface. All you need is a floor-cleaning machine from somewhere like Intelligent Design Manufacturing and you’ll have everything you need to leave your stone floor sparkling.
One thing to bear in mind, however, is that some stone reacts badly to acidic solvents. Marble and limestone are particularly prone to etch marks, so it’s important to clean anything acidic, such as wine or coffee, quickly to avoid damage. Similarly, sandstone should not be left to soak, owing to its porous properties. Soaking sandstone will lead to staining, so keep your sandstone floor as dry as possible.
Why is it best for summer?
As well as the beauty and diversity of the stone available, summer is a great time to invest in the stone. This is because it stays cool even during those hot months, meaning that when you step indoors you’ll be instantly cooled. It also has a cooling effect on the rest of your home, so even that wood effect flooring will regulate the temperature of your home.
