Your Floor: How to Find Right Stone Tile

From an original post by Paul Anater on Houzz

Natural stone has been popular for use on floors for centuries and for very good reason. Stone tile brings the colors and texture of nature to our homes and adds a quality and warmth to a room that’s not possible with any other material.

Because natural stone comes out of the earth, there can be wild variations in its color and quality, so be sure to do your homework when shopping for stone tile for your floor. Order enough material to complete the job in one shipment — that will minimize mismatched lots. As is the case with any flooring material, get a case or two extra. If you have to repair a floor later, the stone you want may not be available.

Let’s take a look at the most popular stone tile materials: slate, travertine, sandstone, granite and marble. Which one would you choose?

Marble.In ancient times, kings and caesars demanded marble floors, and in these more democratic times, you can too. Even though it’s another stone that’s prone to staining and scratching, marble has character.It’s harder and more resilient than travertine but it does need some extra attention.
