TOP FIVE REASONS FOR CHOOSING NATURAL STONE FLOORING IN YOUR PASADENA HOME

Beautiful & Long Lasting

Stone flooring is beautiful to look at and is also sturdy and long lasting so a good choice for the home. It also has a timeless quality that fits with any decor. Stone flooring however is expensive and therefore a major investment. Here are five top reasons why you should consider it. Your interior designer or Pasadena flooring contractor can go over the advantages of the different types of stone flooring.

1. STONE LASTS INDEFINITELY

It is not surprising that so many ancient structures were made of stone since it is incredibly strong. If you are renovating and plan to stay in your home for many years, then stone floors are a solid choice. Stone flooring requires very little maintenance.

2. CAN BE USED INDOORS AND OUT

Flooring contractors consider stone flooring perfect for Pasadena to link indoor and outdoor areas seamlessly together. Since Pasadena enjoys such a warm, sunny climate, it makes sense to maximize the use of outdoor areas. Add large picture windows or sliding doors to bring the outdoor view indoors.

3. STONE STAYS COOL

Pasadena gets very hot in the summer so flooring contractors recommend a flooring surface that stays cool to the touch even when the outdoor temperatures climb. Whereas hardwood and heated floors are suited to chilly climes, stone is excellent for keeping cool in the heat.

4. UNDERFLOOR HEATING

Winters in Pasadena are still warm by most people’s barometers but feel cool to Southern Californians. If you like to have warm tootsies in winter then underfloor heating will do just that. Flooring contractors suggest a surface that conducts heat well and stone does just that.

5. KEEP THOSE ALLERGENS AWAY

More and more people, and particularly children seem to be suffering from allergies.  Hard, non porous surfaces are the most effective at not allowing allergens anywhere to hide.
