Natural stone flooring has been used for centuries. Today, many monuments and castles remain, proving how durable and long-lasting this material is.

There are many reasons to choose stone for the home, including its durability, long lifespan, and property value-adding capabilities. Here are three more reasons to choose natural stone flooring.

Stone’s natural beauty

No one can doubt the allure of stone. It adds elegance to the home and gives it that “wow” factor.

Every slab is a piece of art, courtesy of Mother Nature, and has color variations, unique veining patterns, and all of the “imperfections” found in nature. You won’t see your marble countertop or travertine tile flooring in someone else’s home.

Natural stone flooring also works for many applications. It's a terrific way to incorporate stone in any room in the house.

In our showroom, you’ll see stone designs from manufacturers like Emser and Daltile.

Stone is also hygienic. Especially in kitchens where food is prepared, you'll want countertops, floors, and sinks to be free from dust, dirt, and pollutants. You also wish to have easy cleanability.

Stone addresses those needs and is also an excellent choice for allergy sufferers. It's natural and chemical-free. There are no VOCs, and it's mold-resistant, both being severe triggers.

We often associate the stone with luxury. Currently, marble flooring is trending for bathroom floors. Since stone is also waterproof, it's the ideal choice for that "wettest room in the house."


You'll have natural stone flooring for decades, so there won't be replacement costs. It's also ultra-durable, easy to clean, and waterproof, translating to few, if any, repairs.
