Organic Beauty for Your Home: Natural stone flooring
- Travertine usually needs resealing once a year since it’s a fairly porous stone and can stain if left unsealed.
- A gleaming marble floor is an extremely popular flooring choice in desert areas, both stylistically and practically since it stays cool to the touch even in a hot, dry climate.
- A gray limestone floor works beautifully in modern environments. Limestone, unlike most stone flooring, does not have a lot of variation if cut from the same slab. It usually comes in grays, browns or beige colors and has a distinctive fleck pattern. Limestone can be sanded smooth for a refined look or tumbled for a more rustic, worn look. Since it is porous, it should be sealed every couple of years.
- How about a modern bathroom with oversized quartz tiled floor in a neutral tone? Installing stone tiles like this is a labor-intensive job, and is best left to a professional.
