Have you ever noticed that many of the ancient buildings and structures that were constructed of stone are still around today? That’s because natural stone is so durable, it hard to damage. Even time has had to remove its hand, for the most part. Solid hardwood is also considered a long-lasting floor covering, but it has to be refinished after a decade or so. These floors need very little in the way of maintenance over the course of their lifespan.
Stone is often praised for the ability to retain heat, which is true. However, it stays remarkably cooler in warmer climates as well. It has a natural tendency to stay much cooler than the outdoor temperatures and walking barefoot on this floor in the heat of summer is an exquisite sensation.
You have a great deal of variety when it comes to this floor covering. With so many different kinds of natural stone to choose from, you’ll easily be able to pick one that works perfectly in your home. What’s more, this material is not limited to any one specific room. In fact, you can place this material in the bedroom, hallway, and right out onto the patio, with no problems whatsoever.
Natural stone also has a unique diversity that means your flooring will be unique to your home alone. Since it’s not a manmade material, no cut is going to be the same as the next.
