Natural stone floors can be carved out of sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks, depending on the design that you want to achieve. Slate floors are considered metamorphic stone, meaning they were created as a result of high pressure and heat being applied to the rock while in the earth’s crust. Granite is a very common example of igneous stone, and both limestone and travertine fall into the sedimentary stone category.
Although in the past stone flooring was only purchased by a small group of people who could afford it, advancements in flooring technology have cut down the costs of the labor process and allowed slate floors to be available to the larger market. With natural stone quarries in Italy, Canada, Brazil, USA, Spain, China and Mexico, there is bound to be a stone type that suits your tastes and budget.
