Flooring is an integral part of any interior design and natural stone is becoming a popular choice. One of the natural stone materials commonly used for fancy flooring is limestone.

Limestone Flooring Looks Great

Its elegant matte finish makes limestone flooring a popular choice. Limestone flooring has a very natural earthy look which creates a basic yet classy backdrop for any type of Interior design. Whether you want something homey or contemporary, limestone flooring will fit right in to your choice of interior decoration.

Limestone flooring also comes in light and bright colors. Do you have a preference for cream, light gray or light brown? If you do, then you will love the lighter tones of blue, gray or brown limestone for your home or office floor. Limestone flooring is not only attractive, it can also brighten up a room and make the ambiance more vibrant. Light-colored limestone flooring has this advantage over dark-colored natural stones, which tend to make a room duller and darker.

Limestone flooring does come in darker shades too if this is what you prefer. Black limestone flooring looks gorgeous, perfect for interior designs which are meant to exude strength and masculinity.

With limestone flooring, you also get plenty of finishing options. For your renovation project, you can use limestone tiles which are polished, honed, brushed, tumbled or antiqued.

Limestone Flooring Is Durable

Beauty though is not the only strength of Limestone Flooring. Although softer than marble, limestone flooring is still pretty strong and durable. There generally is no problem using limestone for living rooms, hallways and other busy areas. However, it is not the best material for kitchens and bathrooms.

Suppliers or contractors generally issue some advice on proper care and maintenance of limestone flooring. It requires a sealant to be applied every few years. Applying a good sealant blocks the pores of the material thus preventing moisture from being trapped.

Limestone flooring should also be cleaned using warm water and a mild cleaning liquid only. Using bleach, acid and other very strong cleaning substances leads to damage.

When it comes to maintenance requirements, Sandstone Flooring has a slight advantage over limestone. Sandstone flooring is said last to last longer with ordinary and reasonable care. Sandstone flooring is also more moisture and stain resistant making this type of natural stone more ideal for kitchens and the outdoors.

Both limestone and sandstone flooring are gorgeous and would mix well with any interior design. However, many homeowners prefer sandstone flooring because it is easier to maintain.
