It’s natural stone flooring—and if it’s good enough for the White House and the Taj Mahal, it has got to be good enough for your home.

If you’ve ever walked on a natural stone floor, you understand why architects are increasingly calling upon their marble and granite fabricator to have natural stone installed in both palaces and more modest homes. If you haven’t had the pleasure, here’s what you’re missing:

The aesthetics. The first thing everyone notices about natural stone floors is how aesthetically stunning they are. Marble offers a sophisticated look. Granite, with its myriad color options, can add energy to any space. Both elevate every room to new levels of class.

The durability. If you ask, your marble and granite fabricator will tell you that one of the most tangible advantages of natural stone floors is their durability. Granite is especially durable, with its stain-, scratch- and chip-resistant strength. Both types of stone are guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Long-term savings. Speaking of lasting a lifetime, natural stone floors will do more than simply last. They will maintain their splendor with little to no expensive ongoing maintenance. Rarely do they need to be repaired. Hardly ever do they need to be replaced. And they are incredibly easy to clean.

The kid and pet affect. Nothing ruins a room like a giant grape-juice stain in the carpet or paw scratches all across your hardwood floors. With natural stone floors, you don’t have to worry about either. In addition to all of the other advantages, one of the things people love about their stone floors is that they are impervious to stains from spills (as long as they are cleaned up quickly) and your pets’ claws won’t scratch them.

Uniqueness. It is not hyperbole to say that no two slabs of natural stone are exactly alike. So if your home is your palace and your palace is an extension of your personality, you and your marble and granite fabricator can find a cut that is one-of-a-kind–just like you.

If you’re ready to experience firsthand the many tangible and intangible advantages and benefits of natural stone floors, contact a marble and granite fabricator at Arch City Granite & Marble today to explore your options.
