Which is the best stone for floors?

When it comes to choosing the right stone for your floor, it advisable to consult a specialist, who will advise you on the most suitable material to our interior.Natural stone is more hardwearing than any ceramic tiles. While choosing stone, you should take into account not only its aesthetic value but also its quality and durability. So, which should we opt for?
Natural stone has been used as a finishing material for a very long time because of its elegance and its endurance. It has often been associated with monumental constructions or aristocratic villas. Currently, it is more often used in houses, everywhere the quality of material plays an important role. 
So, which stone to choose?
Practically, any natural stone can be applied. One of the most frequently selected material is still granite, marble and travertine, coming in different shades and allowing for more freedom in the arrangements of interiors. They prove useful as materials for kitchen worktops.
· Marble - is characterised by its delicate and subtle colours. It is most often employed in the arrangements of bathrooms and other spaces not visited by too many people. As its durability is somewhat limited, it is prone to scratches. Natural stone like marble should not be put to use outdoor because it is susceptible to humidity. With time, it can get matt and get covered with delicate lines.
· Granite – being one of the most heard wearing materials, it is ideal for floors. It is resistant to scratching and high temperatures, so it does not change its colour while used. It is hard to be scratched due to its low elasticity. Its additional asset is its easy maintenance with few treatments. It is enough to clean it with water mixed with delicate washing-up liquid.
· Onyx – is decorative stone, the aesthetic value of which is particularly exposed in the day and artificial light.
· Travertine possesses similar characteristics to those of granite, so it is frequently chosen for floors thanks to its high durability and endurance. It has a porous surface, with pores and grooves getting deeper with time. In order to prolong its attractiveness, it is worth spackling it, polishing it and finally impregnating the stone. Unfortunately, such treatment needs to be repeated.
