Although wooden floorboards and ceramic tiles are an attractive and inexpensive option for flooring, they cannot be compared with the cool look and feel of natural stone. When choosing Natural stone floor inside and outside you have to consider the different types of natural stone: slate, marble, limestone, travertine, granite, sandstone, because each of them is characterized by different properties. You have to know them well to determine whether this type of stone is suitable for a particular location.

Natural stone floor inside and outside – sandstone

Sandstone is a mountain-developed material that is mined by many factories around the world. It is a sedimentary rock made up of a large number of granular particles, mainly quartz and feldspar. It looks like sand, which is why it is also called sandstone. The color of the sandstone tiles depends on the minerals they contain, but they are usually available in a warm brown, beige or red shade, similar to real sand. There are also black, dark gray and multi-colored sandstone floor tiles with unique patterns on the surface.

Natural stone floor inside and outside – travertine

Travertine has been a very popular option for natural stone floors in recent years because of its warm appearance. It can look rustic and natural, or it can look polished and shiny. This natural stone can also be found in historical sites such as the Sacré-Cœur Church in Paris and the Colosseum in Rome. The colors range from gray to red, but the most common choice is the pleasant shade of sand.

The limestone is sturdy, durable, and is known as an inexpensive alternative to marble. If properly cared for, its beauty can last for many years. Marble and limestone were made from the same material, calcium carbonate. Limestone is preferred by many interior designers because of its rich color palette. Except in creme limestone there are gray, green, blue, brown and red colors.

Marble flooring is one of the most expensive and elegant options out there. It has a rich history and has been the favorite material for designers, architects, and artists over the years. Real marble floor tiles are quarried in mountains around the world and come in a range of different finishes, colors and sizes. Although the luxurious look is a big plus, the marble needs some maintenance. It needs to be sealed regularly to protect it from dirt and moisture. It is also very sensitive to certain types of pollution and can be easily damaged.

Granite is an expensive but popular material because of its beauty and resilience. Granite comes in a variety of colors and is extremely durable in any weather, so it is often used outdoors. Granite is resistant to extreme heat and scratching.

Slate stone

Slate is a metamorphic rock that is very robust and waterproof. Usually slate is gray or black, but the color can vary depending on the grade and type of slate. And since slate is also resistant to acids, the natural product can be placed directly on the ground, unlike other materials that have to be laid on a layer of sand. Slate has the strength of concrete, but has an appealing natural look.
