Your bluestone floor becomes even lovelier over the years
While ceramic floors wear down over the years and lose their surface texture, bluestone floors only become more beautiful as time passes. Thanks to the lovely patina they gain as they age, your bluestone tiles will end up looking even more unique than when you first laid eyes on them. You don’t have to worry about your floor getting damaged either, as bluestone is particularly solid – even falling objects or children playing won’t affect it whatsoever. Whereas ceramic floors don’t tend to last all too long, installing a bluestone floor is a sure way to add long-term value to your home. In addition, the small white speckles typical of bluestone makes your floor look all the more distinguished. Did you know, by the way, that those charming details (they’re called crinoids) are fossils of small marine animals, such as seahorses?
Keep warm thanks to your natural stone floor
If you opt for a bluestone floor, you have a warm future ahead of you. Not only is bluestone cosy-looking and soft on the feet, you can also effortlessly combine bluestone tiles with underfloor heating. Bluestone is an ideal heat conductor and will distribute heat evenly. That’s right, you can walk barefoot around your living room or bathroom and your bluestone tiles will feel blissfully warm.
A care-free home thanks to a safe bluestone floor
If you like the idea of your children running around the house care-free, we recommend you opt for bluestone tiles with anti-slip qualities, such as our blue flamed and EnoSkin collections. Especially suitable for bathrooms, around swimming pools and on terraces, these tiles offer safety and comfort all in one. Thanks to their slightly textured surface, these anti-slip finishes feel comfortable even under bare feet. In addition, any scratches will naturally fade. In other words, bluestone tiles with anti-slip qualities are appropriate even for the busiest spaces of your home.
