The characteristics of natural stone flooring will differ depending on the pores in each stone. The size and the quantity of these pores is what will determine how strong and stain resistant the floors will be. Stones such as slate and granite are harder and denser kinds of stone, and since they are a non-porous stone, they are great for high traffic areas throughout the home. On the other end of the spectrum sits stones such as travertine, limestone and marble. These stones are going to be softer and more porous stones that will require a sealant application and regular cleaning to keep from staining and to avoid pitting.
If you want to go for a natural and outdoorsy aesthetic for your home, then natural stone flooring is the perfect fit for you.
