Choosing the Right Flooring for Your Bathroom

By Jakemontgomery @LTDOnlineStores

If you don’t have extensive experience in home remodeling, Choosing the Right Flooring for Your Bathroom may present you with a particular dilemma. Natural Stone has long been recognized for its warming colors and rich texture that is nearly impossible to mimic when scrutinized next to synthetic materials.

“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.”

Natural Stone Floors: Slate, Travertine, Sandstone, Marble, and Granite

Durability is one of the determinant factors that prospective buyers consider when purchasing flooring. Did you know that both the Roman Colosseum and St. Peter’s Basicila were both constructed out of Travertine? The Colosseum has been standing for nearly 2,000 years! Like any other product, durability and lifetime are largely affected by the manner in which upkeep and maintenance are tended to! Best of all, these natural stones are very easy to clean!

One thing that homeowners love about natural stones is the fact that they are truly unique and will never look generic! These stones are extracted from the earth so each individual tile will have its own unique tone, pattern, and variation! No two stone tiles will have the same pattern because of this. Tip: Be sure to order extra tile to avoid purchasing a second batch that has divergent tones/patterns!
