Advantages of Natural Stone Flooring
Natural stone is one of the most versatile and adaptable materials to use in home design. Stone is great for offering a natural, timeless look which is set to create a sense of individuality and style in any home. Its classic appearance is one which has been admired for centuries and we’re pretty certain that stone is never going to go out of style for that very reason. Whether stone is used inside a home or externally, choosing natural stone for your next project has a number of advantages.
Natural stone is hard wearing, durable and long lasting which is what makes it such a great investment - it’s not going to need replacing anytime soon. You can be certain that our stone will be the perfect choice for all areas of the home, including heavy traffic areas with plenty of footfall, including children and pets.
Natural stone is really versatile when it comes to making interior choices. Whether your interior style is contemporary or traditional, there is a stone to suit all styles. Stone is often a popular choice for hallways, kitchens and utility rooms, however, it’s also worth noting that stone is a great option in other areas of the home too! Flagstone flooring makes a great choice for bathrooms due to its resistance to moisture and ability to be fitted over underfloor heating. Find out more about stone and underfloor heating here.
You may have also noticed that at White Hall, we offer a range of interior and exterior stone. Using stone indoors and in your outdoor space can be a really nice way to take the inside out, acting as an extension to your home. Some of our stones are supplied in two different finishes so they can be used both internally and externally: Old Farmhouse Green, Old Grey, and Provence. These three variations of stone have had different finishes applied so they are more robust, and slip resistant, making them an excellent option for exterior use. Find out more about creating a seamless flow from inside to out, here.
You may be surprised to find out that flagstone flooring is really easy to maintain and keep clean - providing that you use the right products and methods.
