Flooring adds comfort and style along with texture and value to any home. It can be an overwhelming decision with all the different options to choose from, so hiring a professional may be beneficial. Here are some factors to consider before choosing a type of stone for your floor.

Granite Flooring

Granite is dug straight from the earth and then cut and used for home installations. Therefore, there are many different patterns and variations available to choose from. With many different patterns and variations available, you will be able to choose from a wide range of colors to find the perfect fit for your home. Granite will need to be sealed, which we will provide and usually only needs one application.

Marble Flooring

Marble is another appealing natural stone that can make give any room a more elegant look. It is softer in comparison to granite and can sometimes be suggested to be used for areas that experience less traffic due to its susceptibility to dropped items, but this will vary by the area. There is also the option to go with a more formal style with marble tiles. Tiles will add a splash of pattern while also helping to visually widen the room.

The Tradition of Stone

Both of these natural stones will present an upscale look to any room. You should consider it an investment in your home, since it is one of the more expensive and lasting flooring choices. Natural stone compliments any style with its classic, old-world look.

Use in Moderation

We know natural stone can get expensive. If laying it across an entire room isn’t within budget, try using it in a smaller space. For example, try using it in a laundry room, entryway, or for creating a hearth for the family room fireplace. Using a small amount of stone can create just the touch to make any room more appealing.
