When I moved into my current home, I spent a lot of time cleaning the existing flooring. The kitchen, mudroom, and bathrooms all contained linoleum floors. The rest of the home was carpeted. No matter how hard I worked, I failed to remove the hairspray from the linoleum flooring in the bathrooms. I also could never remove the stains out of the carpet. Thankfully, I decided to I replace my carpet and linoleum floors with hardwood ones a couple of years ago. Since then, I’ve been able to simplify the cleaning process. I spend much less time scrubbing floors; and, my floors look cleaner than they ever did before. On this blog, you will learn the benefits of purchasing hardwood flooring.
When the time comes to choose your new bathroom floor, you might be overwhelmed by all of the options. There's laminate, bamboo, wood, and so many different types of tile! But whether you have a rustic bathroom or a more modern one, there is one flooring option that really stands out from the rest: natural stone tile. Here are four reasons to strongly consider this option for your bathroom.
It's good for the planet.
Natural stone tile is, as the name suggests, a natural product. Its production is better for the planet than the production of plastic-based flooring materials. Plus, when someone eventually removes the stone tile from your home, you don't have to worry about it causing any damage in a landfill. It will just be going right back into the earth -- where it came from.
You don't have to worry about stone tile cracking or chipping if you drop something on it. The tile can also be exposed to water without worry that it will warp or discolor, which is vital in a bathroom where water is so abundant. The grout around the stone tiles may wear out over time, but since the tiles themselves will still be in great shape, you can just re-grout them, which is so much easier than completely re-tiling your bathroom.
It comes in neutral tones.
Since stone tile has such a long life, it's a good idea it comes in neutral colors, too. This enables you to change the color scheme of your bathroom without having to buy new flooring. A gray or cream stone tile floor will look great with any array of wall, ceiling, and accent colors.
Some flooring trends come and go. For instance, wood flooring is stylish in bathrooms right now, but it may not be in a decade or two. Stone tile, on the other hand, has been popular in bathrooms -- and in homes in general -- for many, many years. It's not a trend that's going to fade out, so you don't have to worry about your bathroom floor looking outdated a few years down the road.
