Stone Flooring in the Kitchen Part 2

Following our Stone Flooring for the Kitchen Blog Part 1, we are pleased to present Part 2.

In Part 1, we looked at slate, travertine, sandstone.  In this blog, we will look at Marble, Granit and Limestone.

Marble: Just all-natural stones, marble must be sealed before use and have this sealant reapplied regularly.  Marble, like travertine, is susceptible to staining, so we recommend cleaning up any spills immediately to avoid any potential damage.

Granite: A hard, heavy and unforgiving stone that must be laid on a perfectly even surface that is strong enough to hold its weight.  If there are any bumps or tiny valleys within the surface it is laid on it will crack very easily.

Limestone: Limestone comes in various colour choices and is ideal within high traffic areas, like kitchens.  A sealant must be used at installation and reapplied regularly.
