What Houzz contributors are saying:
Stone floors help keep allergens at bay. If you or a family member suffers from allergies, stone floors may help in your efforts to keep dust and allergens out of the house. The hard, nonporous surface does not give allergens anywhere to hide, making cleaning more effective. Even “porous” stone, like marble, is not very porous compared to materials like wood, cork or carpeting.Flooring: antique limestone in Dijon
Natural StoneWhether they’re made from limestone, slate, granite or travertine, natural stone floors have one major asset: their variation. No two pieces of stone have exactly the same color, pattern or texture, and the differences create a visual depth that’s hard to replicate. Stone also creates an elegant, gracious look that instantly makes a kitchen feel more upscale.Pros: Stone floors have been around for centuries, so it doesn’t get more classic than this. Like tile and concrete, they’re cool underfoot, a boon in hot climates. They’re durable and require little day-to-day maintenance. And did we mention the natural beauty? Cons: Stone is expensive and not for the DIY-minded. The tiny crannies in its surface can trap dirt. Scratches and chips can be an issue with softer stone, such as travertine; slate’s layers have been known to peel over time. Porous stone will need protective sealing at regular intervals.Cost: About $15 to $30 per square foot, uninstalled. How to Find the Right Stone TileLocate a stone company near you
Did I mention in the description of this Ideabook that the one feature that could upstage a beautiful beamed ceiling would be a large window framing a view? This kitchen showcases both, and has there ever been a larger window placed above a kitchen sink? The expansive ceiling height, beautiful finishes along with the ceiling detail and oversized window make this kitchen a beautiful classic.
