Stone flooring – a gift to your future self

In five years time, what will you wish you’d done now? The question is often asked by time management experts, but it applies even more to home design and renovation projects. Caught up in the heat of the moment, it’s easy to get swayed by trendy furnishings or cut a corner to save costs – but would your future self thank you?

 Natural stone flooring is a practical, beautiful option for your home, and you can be sure that your future self will thank you for making the investment. With so many colours, textures and finishes available, you can find a stone flooring to match any design style or ethos, from country kitchen to Scandinavian minimalism. Here are a few reasons your future self will be saying “Thank you!”

Thank you for keeping my home looking good

In five or ten years time, evestone floorn the most robust carpet or lino starts to show wear and tear. From faded patches where sunlight hits a certain spot to stains that immortalize a certain glass of wine or cup of coffee, it’s easy to see how daily life has damaged your flooring. Natural stone flooring, on the other hand, is sealed against dirt, almost impossible to damage and doesn’t fade. In ten, twenty or even fifty years time, your floor could look just as good as new – check out the stone floors in Blenheim Palace or Westminster Abbey for natural stone flooring that’s lasted a century or more!

Thank you for making a choice that doesn’t date

We’ve all done it – chosen a carpet, wallpaper or curtain material that looked great at the time, only to look back a few years later and wonder what the heck we were thinking. Natural stone flooring has a timeless elegance. It also provides a great backdrop for rugs and dramatic furniture, so if you like a regular change you can buy a few statement pieces and update your look as often as you like without needing to make a big investment.

Thank you for making my home easy to clean

It’s not the most glamorous topic, but our homes are made to be lived in. Natural stone flooring is sealed to make it waterproof and impervious to stains, which means that it’s really easy to clean. Simply wipe up any spills, sweep or vacuum to pick up dust, and mop as needed. You won’t have to worry about mess damaging your flooring as your stone floor can withstand almost anything you care to throw at it, from hot cooking oil to poster paints. We don’t recommend actually throwing things at it though, as that could cause a chip or scratch!
