It isn't hard to see why so many people hunt down stone flooring ideas to form part of their interior scheme — the sheer breadth of choice means there really is something for everyone.

Although there are many types of flooring out there, stone is hard to beat. Not only is it practical and incredibly durable, but it also carries with it a beautiful organic and natural feel, whether it is smooth, polished and honed for a sleek contemporary look, or rustic and full of obvious irregularities for a more earthy finish.
