Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Choose Natural Stone Tile Flooring

Learn about the advantages of using natural stone floors in your home.

Natural stone tiles are quickly becoming the flooring material of choice among homeowners in Scottsdale and Phoenix. Natural stone flooring is beautiful, durable, and versatile. It looks great in both traditional and contemporary buildings. Below are the top 10 reasons why you should choose natural stone floors for your home.

  1. Easy to maintain

If you’re looking for a type of flooring that will last longer than a carpet and that is easy to maintain, natural stone tiles are an excellent choice. All you need to do is sweep or vacuum your natural stone floors on a regular basis to remove loose dirt and dust. Mop the floor with a mild detergent or degreaser. Avoid using harsh cleaners that contain bleach, acids, or ammonia. Rinse off the stone with clean water to remove any leftover detergent. Dry the floors off with a clean cloth or rag, and voila, maintenance is complete.

  1. One-of-a-kind

As its name suggests, natural stone comes from nature, so each and every tile is distinct and unique. No two tiles are the same. Natural stone tiles are available in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and colors.

  1. Eco-friendly

Stone tiles are strong and durable, so they are capable of lasting a lifetime. By choosing natural stone flooring, you are making a minimal impact on the earth’s resources since you don’t have to replace your flooring so quickly. What’s more, the energy used to extract natural stone is significantly less compared to the resources required to manufacture other flooring materials. Because natural stone is taken directly from the ground, it doesn’t contain any pollutants.

  1. Cost-effective

Although they cost more upfront, natural stone tiles are a long-term and sustainable investment that will provide you with benefits for years to come. The cost of natural stone tiles has also dropped in recent years, increasing their accessibility.

  1. Warmth

An electric floor heating system combined with natural stone tiles is an excellent way to warm your home. Natural stone is a good conductive floor covering because it allows for the easy transfer of heat from the heating system.

  1. Keep your home cool

In addition to providing warmth during the cold winter months, natural stone floors keep your home cooler in during the warm summer months.

  1. Ideal for asthma and allergy sufferers

Natural stone tiles are a great choice for asthma and allergy sufferers because they are easy to clean and free of allergens.

  1. Add value to your property

Natural stone flooring is a desirable amenity that increases your home’s value. The investment in luxurious and long-lasting natural stone flooring will be reflected in the asking price of your property when it comes time to sell. Natural stone flooring will also make your home more attractive to prospective buyers.

  1. Versatile

Natural stone flooring can be used in nearly any application, including hallways, bathrooms, showers, and kitchens. It can be used both inside and outside your home. Unlike with wood flooring, you don’t have to worry about installing natural stone flooring in a wet environment because it withstands moisture.

  1. Beautiful

There is no type of flooring more elegant and beautiful than natural stone flooring. Natural stone tiles come in many colors, shapes, styles, and finishes. They have a sophisticated and stylish look and feel that no man-made material can compete with. Natural stone is the only flooring material that seems to improve with age.
