There are many kinds of natural stone flooring, and it is important to arm yourself with the knowledge to help find the right one for your home. Each kind of stone flooring differs in strength and stain resistance based on the size of the pores in the stone and how many of them there are. The kinds of stone without pores, such as slate or granite, are going to be more dense and durable. These are the kinds of stone flooring that you will want for areas in your home with more foot traffic such as the kitchen and entryways. Marble, travertine and limestone are the more porous stones and require a bit more maintenance, because they require regular coats of sealant and need to be cleaned frequently to help prevent stains.
