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!”

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.

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!
