Stone Age

July 27, 2010

With all the natural stone out there to choose from; which should you choose for your home? Natural stone flooring evokes a timeless beauty to any home.  Natural stone is a strong and organic material that makes a superb material for flooring and countertops.

Granite is extremely durable and the hardest and most dense of the natural stones.  Granite is better than any other natural stone in resisting stains and scratching.  It is an ideal choice for heavy traffic areas like kitchens or foyers.

Marble is the most elegant of the natural stones.  It used to be that only the wealthy could have marble in their homes but now marble is much more main stream.  Marble is not as hard as granite but soft enough to use with tools and endures the test of time.  Marble is easily identifiable by its luxurious swirls and veining.

Slate is highly versatile and can be used both for an exterior and interior application.  Slate gives a very natural and rustic look to any room or décor and is made of clay and shale which great to use on the back porch or patio.

Travertine is soft and porous but always projects a look of sophistication and high style.  There are four basic finishes for travertine flooring tiles: polished, honed, brushed and tumbled. Polished travertine tiles are shiny because the stone is polished until it is flat and smooth enough to catch and reflect light. Honed travertine tiles have a matte finish, being polished just enough to create a flat, smooth surface. Brushed and tumbled travertine tiles are textured.  Tumbled travertine has a rougher, textured surface and often has rounded corners for an antique look.

Natural stone will bring elegance to any room and always increases the value of your home.  Using natural stone in your home is sure to add richness and panache to your decor.

Domestic or Imported? The Flavor of Hardwood

June 18, 2010

Domestic or Imported?  We aren’t talking beer here but hardwood floors.  The National Wood Flooring Association lists 34 species of hardwoods used in flooring which is just a few more than Baskin & Robbins and more than enough to fit any style, taste or budget.

If you want something “home brewed” for your floors there are plenty of domestic hardwood species available to choose.  The most popular are Red & White Oak or Southern Yellow & Antique Heart Pine. These four species are readily available and have excellent durability.

Looking for something slightly more exotic? Popular imported hardwood flooring choices include Brazilian Cherry, Merbau, Cork and Bamboo.  Bamboo and Cork flooring are also known as “green” products as they are both renewable.  The availability, cost and  durability of these species have a wide range so you should talk to your ProSource of Pinellas County  team to assist you in making the right hardwood choice.
