Flooring

The effect the floor has on a room can sometimes be overlooked. Marble flooring is perfect for bathrooms and gives that room a beautiful edge, particularly in a lighter colour. Light shades are reflective and can make a space look bigger and more airy. Stone floors also work well with underfloor heating.
