Granite flooring can offer a variety of practical and aesthetic benefits to any space. This versatile material is an excellent choice for residential and commercial spaces alike, guaranteed to yield years of use.
At Africa Range, we offer a variety of exotic and unique products to bring life to your space.
Why choose granite flooring?
The strength of this natural stone flooring is of the best, meaning it is suitable to withstand high traffic areas and even factors like pet claws, without yielding any damage. When professionally sealed, it is also resistant to moisture, making it suitable for use in the kitchen, bathroom and other moisture-prone areas.
The natural beauty offered is often one of the many reasons individuals settle on granite flooring for their property. Since this stone was created millions of years ago, it exhibits a truly unique look. No two granite slabs that are mined from our quarries are exactly alike, bringing a one-of-a-kind aspect to any building it is placed in.
This very uniqueness also offers clients an array of stunning colours and designs that can diversify any space. The various finishes available can also alter the outcome of your granite flooring.
A polished finish, for example, is often more popular in living rooms, while granite with a leathered finish may be more suitable for a bathroom space as it is non-slip.
Choosing this flooring for your space is already a bold move, your final look should not only be exotic but also of high quality. This is dependent on how your choice of slabs work alongside the other décor elements of your space.
A popular design pairing is for light coloured walls to be implemented alongside contrasting granite to bring the space alive. Whether it is darker or lighter can also influence the space in your room, making it feel respectively smaller or larger.
The main advantages of this natural stone flooring
When properly sealed, granite is completely stain-resistant. This removes any concern associated with accidentally damaging your floors with a spill. Overall, cleaning is also easier as it only requires a mop with mild soap and water about once a week.
This is the perfect solution for those suffering from allergies. The hypoallergenic quality of granite allows for reduced symptoms of major allergies as it can significantly reduce the allergens present in the space.
For a luxurious looking end product, granite can be polished by buffing the surface to its most refined state. Polishing granite leaves it with a smooth and reflective elegant look that enhances its natural beauty.
Honed granite is achieved by buffing the stone to the point just before its polished state. This creates a smooth yet soft appearance. This is the matte alternative to polished granite as it does not hold any reflective qualities.
For individuals looking for textured granite, a leathered finish makes the granite appear more matte and allows it to be non-slip. It is also suitable for a stylish indoor or outdoor flooring solution.
Flamed finished granite is exposed to intense flames which causes it to burst, resulting in a rough to the touch texture. This finish is particularly ideal for those looking for a non-slip surface, making it suitable for outdoor use.
