Natural Stone Flooring Specialist - Houston, TX
Imagine: as guests enters your home, the first thing they see is a sweeping travertine entryway with an inlaid marble border. As they walk in to your living room, the bold color contrast between your furniture and the multi-colored slate floor gives them the sensation that they just entered the parlor of an old British estate. The durable granite counter tops are the perfect finish to your kitchen, elegant and natural.
These are looks that can only be achieved with the God-made beauty of natural stone. At Bargain Carpets & Floors, we feature an assortment of natural stone flooring samples to view what will inspire the designer in you.
Houston Granite Flooring
Granite has applications ranging from residential to heavy commercial. Being one of the densest and hardest stones available, granite can be used in counter tops, walls, and floors. Its mirror finish when polished and depth of texture from the minerals found in it give a truly elegant look.
Houston Slate Flooring
Slate flooring has recently made its way in to the industry again. Truly random patterns that feature all the colors of the rainbow can be found. We have also started to carry an assortment of honed slate patterns; these tiles have been honed and polished to give a smooth finish similar to that of marble.
However, the slate characteristics are not diminished; in fact, the mineral deposits and honed layers combine to give the floor an almost holographic depth to it. This finish also removes one of the most common complaints about slate as a floor product: flaking. A honed finish leaves no jagged edges to peel off and no pockets for dirt to get trapped under.
Houston Marble Flooring
Marble has been a staple in the flooring industry since before there was a flooring industry. Marble was used in Roman and Egyptian construction as it was easy to work with and could withstand centuries of use. With striking color combinations ranging from an almost neon blue to solid black, marble flooring also allows for true color in stone. Marble flooring is almost a status symbol in upper end homes through out the world, and with Bargain Carpets & Floors, there is no need to pay upper end prices.
Houston Travertine Flooring
Travertine is a stone that until recently was not common in the United States. Used in mostly South America, it has made the journey north and hit the North American market in a big way. The coloring in these product ranges in the neutrals with browns, tans, and creams.
One thing to be wary of when buying this product is filler material. While all travertine is very porous and must have some filler, it is not desirable to have that be more than 15%-25% of the face of the tile. Cheaper versions will see 40%-55% of the face in filler and will affect the life and structure of the tile.
Bargain Carpets & Floors can provide your kitchen or bath room with that perfect finish. A custom countertop made of granite, marble, or limestone brings durability along with the functionality of having just the space you want and need. We will measure, estimate, and advise you on the type of material best suited to your needs.
At the time of fabrication, we will take you with us to the slab yard to pick out the perfect piece. Finally, we will professionally install the finished natural stone flooring, so it will last you a lifetime.
