Your home is a valuable asset, therefore opting for quality, long-lasting and deluxe finishes, such as beautiful natural stone flooring, is both a prudent investment as well as a great way to add style to your property.
Authentic stone flooring is timeless and rich with distinctive and unique natural character and it is also hardwearing and resilient, meaning that floors tend to stay looking good for many years to come. Radiant underfloor heating systems are also ideal for use with stone floors, since the hard material offers the least resistance and therefore transfers and conducts thermal heat very effectively. Due to these desirable qualities, using it in the home will almost certainly add significantly to resale value.
Here, we explore the many different ways that natural stone flooring can be used as a striking addition to your home.
Quarried natural stone continues to remain popular for homes of all eras – stone flooring is a fantastic choice for hallways, kitchens and conservatories, as well as bathrooms and living areas.
At The Stone Gallery, one of the many things we love about this natural product is the array of finishes, colours and patterns which can be found in stone and which make it so incredibly versatile.
Texture and character can be injected into a home, though the installation of natural stone flooring – from rustic, riven surfaces to chic, polished slabs – there really is a style and colour to suit every type of décor and interior style.
For sleek and chic modern properties, opt for very smooth stone flooring which will add stone's organic quality whilst maintaining a sophisticated edge. With its neutral colouration, lightly polished travertine will give a subtle and understated look to contemporary, urban kitchens, bathrooms, hallways and open plan living areas. For those who seek more statement-making wall tiles and stone flooring, marble will lend a glamourous elegance to boutique hotel-inspired bathrooms and opulent kitchens.
If you're looking for a more rustic character – perhaps for a cosy farmhouse-style kitchen, hallway, utility or living room – then the main contender is hardwearing, stain-resistant slate. In a varied palette of deep colours, slate is ideal for homes with high traffic, children and pets! In less busy homes, painted country cottage kitchens will be enhanced with mellow antique limestone, for a slightly distressed effect. Tumbled matt travertine tiles are perfect for bathrooms and far less slippery than their polished counterparts and will add a mellow warmth to walls and floors.
