One of the most amazing looking flooring options is to use a natural stone tile in your home. If you have stone tile already then you know that the look is beautiful and the feel of it is just as amazing. The great thing is that they can be treated by a professional to keep the looking good and lasting a long time. They also come in many shades of colors and even can be cut to many different shapes. If you do not have stone floors they are a great choice but there are many options you can choose from.
Silver State Floor Restoration has a list of the most common stone flooring options.
Travertine Stone Tile: This is a great stone floor option that is very popular in Las Vegas. Travertine is a natural stone that is used to do floor tiles, backsplashes, and even countertops. Travertine is a sedimentary stone that is made when deposits of minerals and other material are pushed together. This stone is actually a type of limestone and is found in the same places. The cool thing about travertine is that it is a porous stone and has some holes that you can have filled or not when it is installed. Travertine can be cleaned and polished by a professional tile restoration company. This is a great way to remove stains and have the floors looking shiny and clean.
Granite Floors: This is another kind of natural stone that you can use to tile your floors. It is also used often times to tile or cover a counter or shower. Granite is a porous stone and can be stained a little easier than some other stone that is not as porous. They need to be maintained to be kept looking good by a professional. The piece of granite is harvested, treated and cut down to the size that you will use for your floors of counters. Then it is polished since the actual stone is not that shiny by nature.
Slate Flooring: This is a more up and coming natural stone flooring option but is a great choice. The stone is not as porous as some other stone and that makes it easier to care for and less likely to stain. Slate is found in many areas of the world and like other natural stone is not uniform. They come in a wide array of colors such as grey, black and purple. This type of stone is a great way to make a statement in your home.
