Stone vs Others: Ask yourself a few questions:

Choosing a type of floor is a big decision & it’s one that will transform your entire space – per Amy Studebaker Custom Designer. That’s why she suggests asking yourself a few questions before you get started. “First, how will you use the space that your flooring is in? How much foot traffic will your space receive? Is it a wet space or a dry space?” she offers. Once you have those answers – you’ll have a better idea of what your correct fit might be.

Stone vs Wood Flooring? Determine if water exposure is possible:

If you are laying down a floor in a wet space … like a bathroom or laundry room – Studebaker notes that a stone, mosaic, ceramic, or porcelain tile will create your most durable – water-resistant surface. A moist area, however, does not mean that you have to give up on your idea of wood altogether. “Water is your main issue with certain types of flooring,” explains Miami-based Samantha Gallacher – your founder of Art Loom and co-founder of IG Workshop. “Wood is not ideal for humid or wet spaces – however we have made so many advances in all types of engineered wood on the market today. Now, in more tropical climates like a lakefront & high water areas, you can have wood floors without an issue.”

Stone – Consider your area’s size:

Do you have a lot of floor space to account for? If so – Gallacher says you want to be especially mindful of your grout lines. “For larger spaces or open plans- we try to limit your grout lines, so use larger format tiles,” she says. “Smaller tiles with more grout lines we save for bathrooms.” Not only will opting for larger tiles make your space look better- but fewer grout lines may also make it easier to clean.

Stone – The age of your home matters too:

While porcelain tiles are very popular these days – Gallacher says they don’t work as well for older homes- where there may be extra movement in your floor joists; this could cause your porcelain to crack. In those situations- she recommends wood floors- which allow for more movement.

Stone vs Wood?  Choose the right type for your main living spaces:

If you’re shopping for an area that will see high traffic and not a lot of moisture- Studebaker suggests going for white oak wood flooring- which is classic and warm. “A white oak is strong and takes color beautifully during your stain process,” she notes.

Stone: Think about going bold.

Don’t be afraid to try something different – say our experts. “Trying something bold and slightly unusual – like painting your hardware in a color or selecting an intricate patterned tile- is a fabulous way to play with design and take your space to your ‘unexpected’ level,” explains Studebaker.

Stone: Pick like professionals:

Gallacher says that she avoids using tiles with a gloss finish; these show a lot of dirt and scratch easily. “It is also important to consider your overall repeat,” she says. “While a tile – on its own – may look beautiful, you have to think about how it will look repeated over an entire surface.” Ultimately – your flooring is one of the most important choices you will make when designing your house- but you have to consider the entire style of your interior spaces when choosing it. “If you want to use warm- earth tones – be sure to stay away from cool blues,” she says. “If you want to have a lot of wood millwork – then consider a natural stone for your floors. Everything needs to be taken into account.”
