Granite countertops are a popular choice in the bathroom and kitchen if you’re after an elegant-looking solution for those rooms, but natural stone doesn’t always spring to mind as a flooring material.
Yet granite always stands out, due to its large mineral grains which fit closely together. You can even see individual grains with the naked eye – so it’s highly distinctive. (Even its natural imperfections don’t detract from its beauty.)
This means that if you don’t consider a granite floor, you could be missing out! Here, we put forward some of the benefits of granite floors.
Granite is incredibly long-lasting
Durability and strength are huge advantages of granite. Use the right sealant and cleaning products and your stone floor can last for years if not decades.
Take your pick from a huge range of patterns and colours
If you think going for granite limits you to dark colours, think again. You could choose a lighter shade of stone with fine veining and pink flecks, for example. Meanwhile, Canada and Ireland offer the option of green granite. So you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to design.
Equally, you have a great choice of finishes – including polished, honed, brushed and flamed granite. And, remember, each tile will have a unique look, seriously adding to the character of your floor.
It’s great at shrugging off stains
This substance resists staining more than some of the alternatives. That’s especially true if you seal and clean your stone properly. Other kinds of natural stone are typically more porous, so granite doesn’t retain moisture, which discourages bacteria. At the same time, it’s the ideal choice for those who suffer from certain allergies, thanks to its hygienic nature.
It could enhance the value of your property
An attractive granite floor that’s been well cared for can be a key draw if you are looking to sell your home.
