Natural Stone is a durable, long lasting flooring solution for the kitchen. However, annual application of a quality chemical stone sealer is advised and can create and invisible coat of protection over the stone.
Stone floors have been around for centuries, so it doesn’t get more classic than this. Like tile and concrete, they’re cool underfoot, which is an advantage in hot climates. They’re durable and require little day-to-day maintenance. And did we mention the natural beauty?
Natural stone may not scratch, but will stain since it’s porous. Be extra careful with your glass of red wine. Natural stone requires more upkeep than other types of flooring. It must be cleaned with a stone cleaner or mild detergent. You also have to seal it every one to two years to protect its porous surface (some sealers will last longer).
