Stone's natural strength and stability
Stone Floor Options
In the past, stone flooring was only seen in commercial buildings. But, over the years, it has grown more and more popular in homes. There are two types of stone flooring that people use in their homes today, natural and engineered stone.
Natural Stone Flooring
Based on its name, it is obvious that natural stone flooring is made from real stone. It makes a great option in the home because it can withstand heavy foot traffic. Natural stone flooring can also be sealed to protect it from moisture and spills.
What's even better about natural stone is that it provides a unique and timeless look. No two natural stone floors will be the same, since no two pieces of stone are the same.
Engineered Stone Flooring
Engineered stone flooring looks very much like natural stone flooring, but it is made of mostly synthetic materials. This type of flooring will not crack under pressure because it is soft and flexible. The flexibility and softness of the stone also make it very comfortable underfoot. Also, this type of flooring is long lasting because it resists stain and moisture. Engineered stone flooring comes in a variety of styles and colors, all with their own unique appearances.
