How to Pick the Right Flooring for Your Interiors?

Selecting the perfect flooring for your interiors is a meticulous dance between style, durability, and functionality. Among the myriad options available, the quartet of Marbles, Onyx, Quartzite, and Granite, Tile and Composite Marble stands as a testament to timeless beauty and enduring strength. Let's embark on a journey through these exquisite choices and unravel the secrets to finding the flooring that resonates with your design aspirations.

Marble Flooring: Timeless Elegance Personified

Marble is a classic. Synonymous with luxury and for good reason. Considering the polish it holds and the vast variety of designs and colours marble comes in, it is a great way to add colour and texture to your home while also making sure that your home is completely unique. After all, no 2 pieces of marble are perfectly alike.

Marble, with its distinctive veining and lustrous finish, is a timeless embodiment of elegance. Ideal for foyers, living rooms, and bedrooms, marble creates a statement floor that becomes the focal point of your space. It adds a touch of luxury, making it a favourite for those who seek to infuse sophistication into their interiors.

Maintenance Consideration: While marble demands care, the longevity it promises makes it a worthwhile investment. Regular cleaning with clean water keeps your polish strong and ensure the longevity of your marble, with minor buffing only being required every few years.

Quartzite Flooring: The Epitome of Tough Elegance

Quartzite, a metamorphic rock, combines elegance with durability. It mirrors the aesthetics of marble but surpasses it in terms of strength. Quartzite is normally used on surfaces that need to withstand tough surfaces such as kitchen tops and dining tables. However, it’s toughness makes quartzite flooring an excellent choice for areas with high foot traffic, such as kitchens and hallways.

Practical Strength: Quartzite is renowned for its resistance to scratches and stains, making it a practical and aesthetically pleasing option. Its varied colour palette ensures compatibility with diverse design schemes.

Granite Flooring: Opulence and Endurance United

Granite flooring is synonymous with endurance. Granite is traditionally used in kitchen countertops. Granite is also used in an even heavier usage area, which is staircases. Its robust nature makes it a suitable choice for high-traffic areas. The only drawback of granite is it’s relatively limited  colour options.

Installation and Maintenance: Professional installation and regular maintenance are prerequisites for granite flooring. The effort invested pays off in the form of long-lasting beauty that enhances the grandeur of your interiors.

Tiles and Composite Marble 

Tiles revolutionised homes by making cheap flooring available to those on limited budgets. However, despite human ingenuity, tile still falls short. Despite all efforts, the joints between tiles will always be visible, causing visual distraction. Tiles also have not been able to replicate the feeling of tile underneath the skin. The sheer pleasure and comfort that stone provides, tile cannot match. This is why whenever possible, people prefer to put marble in their homes.

Since Marble is naturally formed, its patterns and colours continue and change. This means that when installed correctly, it can have a continuing look throughout your space, whereas the pattern on tile simply repeats.

For those on a very tight budget, tile and composite marble can provide a solution, even though it misses out on the luxury of natural stone.

Making the Decision: A Harmonious Blend

In the symphony of flooring choices, the decision between marbles, quartzite, granite and tile rests on the interplay of your style preferences, budget considerations, and the specific needs of each room.

  • Consider Your Style: Marbles exude classic elegance, travertine embraces natural warmth, quartzite combines elegance with strength, and granite stands as a symbol of understated strength.
  • Evaluate Your Budget: While each option presents its unique allure, your budget plays a crucial role in making the final decision.
  • Assess Room Specifics: High-traffic areas may benefit from the durability of granite or quartzite, while the timeless charm of marble or the earthy appeal of travertine could be perfect for other spaces.

The right flooring for your interiors is a harmonious blend of aesthetics, durability, and practicality. At Rynestone, we stand ready to guide you through this journey, ensuring your selection not only meets but exceeds your expectations.
