The Most Expensive Flooring In The World

Flooring adds a unique feel to a space and can truly bring out the beauty of a property.

We all know that marble and other natural stones do not come cheap but you’d be surprised to find out the cost of one particular type of flooring.

Pietra Firma Luxtouch Tiles

The priciest tile in the world is called Pietra Firma Luxtouch tiles and these tiles cost $1,000,000 per square meter.

luxtouch-tiles

Why So Expensive?

Every square meter of this tile is inlaid with:

  • More than 1000 diamonds
  • 2400 pieces of mother of pearl
  • 400 pieces of abalone shell
  • 500 pieces of black onyx

The tile creates a look that is incomparable to any other tile in the world due to its unique composition. Since the elements within the stone are slightly raised above the surface, the tactile effect when walking on them adds to the uniqueness of it. The tile will only be used in five projects globally, being exclusive and extremely rare, and of course, expensive.

This one-of-a-kind tile made its debut during the Monaco Yacht Show in Monte Carlo. With its intricate detailing and exceptional artistry, this creation most definitely begs a second glance. The limited edition flooring is the definition of luxury and boasts uncompromising thought to detail. High-end consumers find unmatched ambience in this posh tile as it adds a high level of atmosphere to a room.

Top High-Quality Flooring for Your Home 

If the Pietra Firma Luxtouch tiles are not in your budget but you are still interested in investing in luxurious high-quality floors for your home, consider purchasing the following:

    • Natural Stone Tiling – Evergreen stone niles are perfect if you’re going for a natural finish. Most people use natural stone tiling for the exterior parts of their homes, bringing an attractive natural look. Natural stone tiles range from $15 to $20 per square foot. 
    • Mosaic and ceramic floor – Looking for a unique and stylish finish? Most of these tiles are made from famous Italian designers and are commonly used in mosques – a very Moroccan finish. Mosaic and ceramic tiles range from $30 per square foot.
    • Marble – Marble is also highly used and most tiles can cost up to $55 per square foot. Marble slab countertops range from $40 to $100 square feet. 

Celebrities are well known for their luxurious million dollar mansions. Canadadian rapper Drake’s Toronto mansion is a marble masterpiece. His kitchen, master bathroom, and other rooms are covered in fine and expensive marble. His Paonazzo marble island in his kitchen costs about $50 per square feet.

Floor Polishing, Cleaning and Restoration

HOW TO POLISH MARBLE FLOORS: 5 SIMPLE STEPS

Marble is a great option for a durable, attractive flooring option. That said, because marble is high-quality, it can also be expensive. To protect that investment, it’s important to properly care for and maintain your floors. This includes regular polishing and cleaning.

Using the wrong cleaning techniques can damage your floors, so it is important to do your research. Check out this guide to learn more about how to polish marble.

Floor Polishing Cleaning and Restoration

GET THE RIGHT SUPPLIES

Before you can start cleaning and polishing your marble floors, it’s important to have the right materials. The basic supplies you will need are a mild detergent, soft cloths, polish, and marble sealant. If your marble floors have stains, you will also need a poultice to remove them.

Once you have all of the materials, you’re ready to start cleaning.

DO AN INITIAL CLEANING

The first step to cleaning your floors is to an initial cleaning with a mild detergent. You may want to test a small area first to make sure the detergent does not discolor the floors.

If the floors have stains, you can try removing them by focusing on them with the detergent first. If the detergent does not work, you will have to use the poultice.

When applying the detergent, use a clean, soft cloth. A hard cloth could leave small scratches on your floor.

APPLY POULTICE

It is critical to remove stains in the marble before you polish it. Polishing your marble will not remove stains. Instead, it will seal the stains.

Stains that have set in will need some time to remove. To start the process, apply the poultice, cover with plastic wrap, and leave it to sit for 24 to 48 hours. If the stain is still there, try repeating the process.

Some stubborn stains may require professional treatment to remove completely. It is important to act quickly to ensure the stains do not become permanent.

USE A POLISHING COMPOUND

Once the stains have been removed to your liking, it is time to add the polish. Remember, do not polish your floors while the stains remain.

Apply the polish to one small section of the floor at a time, and slowly work your way across. Always start with a little bit of polish, and then add more as needed so you do not end up with excess.

SEAL THE POLISH

Once the polish has dried, the last step is to seal the floors. A topical polish will sit on top of your floors and prevent them from staining.

Spray the sealant on the floor, let it sit for about 20 minutes, and then wipe it off with a soft cloth. Do not like the sealant dry fully, or it will leave streaks on your floors.

GET THE MATERIALS YOU NEED TO POLISH MARBLE

It’s essential to regularly clean and polish marble to keep your floors in good condition.

THE BEST WAY TO MAINTAIN DURABILITY AND GLAZE OF MARBLE FLOORING

Marble is very durable and is considered a luxury in home designs due to the price. The popularity and demand for marble are high throughout the world due to its incomparable glaze. Maintaining the luxurious look can be difficult over time. Marble is porous and accumulates dust particles that develop stains which are difficult to clean without harming the marble if you attempt to clean the surface yourself.

Marble Restoration & Polishing

KEEPING YOUR MARBLE FLOORS BEAUTIFUL

Classic marble creates a classic, clean look that can’t be replicated by any other material. Taking care of marble can be a difficult task, however. Because it is such as porous material, it can absorb spills and stain easily. Many household cleaners can seriously harm the marble as well, making simple cleaning and maintenance difficult. At Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. we can take care of your marble cleaning needs.

One of the best things you can do for your stone between cleanings is to perform regular maintenance. If you have marble floors, make sure all your furniture has padding on the bottom to avoid scratches. If something spills, wipe up the mess with a soft cloth quickly. Floor cleaning is much easier if the stone has been properly maintained from day to day. Do not use harsh household cleaners because they can seriously damage the stone.

Natural stone polishing is another part of regular marble maintenance. Polishing doesn’t just make the stone look nice, but actually helps keep it clean. If done incorrectly, however, it can suffocate the stone and damage it. We use only the best products and techniques for your particular stone. We have the expertise and experience to polish your stone right the first time, making sure we don’t cause any damage.

Marble is one of the most luxurious materials you can use in your home, and is worth proper maintenance. Nothing can be worse than installing new countertops or floors only to have it ruined by poor cleaning techniques. Do what you can to ensure proper maintenance yourself, but when it is time for a deep clean or polish, contact us at 866.578.3600 for a free estimate or fill out our contact form. We will take care of all your marble cleaning, floor cleaning, and natural stone polishing needs.

The Right Stone for Bar/Restaurant Owners

As a bar or restaurant owner, or a restaurant owner with a bar, you want to choose the ideal stone to offer an aesthetically pleasing environment for your guests and achieve a long-lasting functionality for your business. The right stone can make all the difference in the visual appeal of your bar while your servers are offering up flights, cocktails, appetizers, and meals to your patrons.

The perfect stone for your bar/restaurant showcases your establishment’s energy, delivers style and function, and greets your customers. There are several options available from natural stone to engineered products. Let’s uncover the one that will best suit the needs of your bar or restaurant.

Marble – Elegance and Luxury

Marble is a multi-purpose natural stone used in architecture, sculpture, designs, and more. Offering timeless design, marble features subtle tones and lines which adds elegance and luxury to your bar and restaurant.

Marble is also known for its longevity, though if not cleaned up quickly, it can stain as a result of spills from wine and other acidic substances. Of course, as a restaurateur, you know that spills are quickly cleaned off any surface, making marble an exceptional choice for your bar. However, keep in mind that marble surfaces need to be sealed regularly to keep them functioning at their best.

Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. offers the most thorough marble cleaning process and outstanding marble polishing services to keep your marble looking brand new.

Granite – Classic and Versatile

Granite is another excellent choice in natural stone. Every slab of granite is distinct, offering a multitude of colors and patterns making it ideal for upscale restaurants where culinary creativity abounds, or neighborhood bars where everyone feels welcome.

For your granite to promise a unique character and deliver functional durability, you will need to hire a granite and other natural stone services company that specializes in restoration and polishing.

Onyx – Deep and Exotic

Onyx, also a natural stone, is unique in the fact that it is translucent and can be backlit, adding to its deep, exotic charm. Onyx promises a unique design, which will act as a focal accent for your restaurant. Onyx is slightly more sensitive than other natural stone, so it will be the optimal choice for more exclusive venues.

However, onyx can be used for any venue if you hire a professional marble restoration and polishing company to regularly maintain it. With Classic Marble Restoration, Inc., you will no longer have to worry about the delicate onyx stone on your bar top.

Successfully Facing the Challenges of a Bar or Restaurant Owner

As a bar and/or restaurant owner, it can be difficult to keep the natural stone in your bar/restaurant clean and safe on a daily, and we understand the importance of keeping your bar in tip-top condition for your patrons. That is why at Classic Marble Restoration, Inc., our goal is to help you do just that, so we are pleased to provide you with a FREE estimate for keeping your natural stone looking its best and performing with exceptional functionality for years to come.

Avoid Rough Treatment

There are several important marble cleaning tips that will keep the stone on countertops and floors looking fantastic between professional natural stone restoration services from our technicians. Because stone is a porous material, never use over-the-counter cleansers that contain dyes or fragrances that can seep into surfaces to cause an ugly discoloration or stain. Avoid using rough equipment such as hard bristled brooms or heavy-duty vacuum cleaners that can scratch the surface of marble floors.

Commercial Grade Cleansers

A great way to remove debris from a marble surface is by spraying the material with plain water before using a commercial grade cleanser designed for the stone. Never apply a cleanser directly on stone, but instead use a small amount on a soft cloth to rub at a stain gently. After removing debris from stone such as marble, it is vital to dry the material quickly with a soft cloth or air circulation from a fan.

Choosing the Right Stone for Your Home

When it comes to choosing a natural stone for your home, you have a variety of options. The types of natural stone each have their own advantages and disadvantages. Which one is better? It really depends on your own personal style preferences and how you wish to use them in your home.

The main thing to consider when choosing a stone for your home is how it will be used. The harder stones, like granite and marble, are best used for areas that will get a lot of usage, like your countertop. Softer stones, like limestone, can be scratched and may be best in places of accent, although many people simply protect their counters using cutting boards, trivets and coasters.

Cleaning and maintaining the stones may also be a factor in the decision you make. Many only require a mild detergent to clean them, but if they are porous, which will allow bacteria to penetrate them, you may need to use harsher cleaning agents. How much work do you want to put in to keep them looking good should play a factor in your decision.

If you are considering a change in your home, Classic Marble Restoration, Inc. can help you to determine which of the natural stones may be right for your home, whether it is travertine, terrazzo or another type of stone.

Protect Natural Stone with Sealants

topmarble

Classic Marble Restoration Inc. provides natural stone sealing for a variety of surfaces in a building, including floors and countertops. Every type of untreated stone such as granite or marble can absorb solid or liquid debris. To prevent stains and discoloration on stone surfaces that receive a lot of use, the professional team at Classic Marble can apply protective sealants. There are several types of chemical agents that we can use to protect stone surfaces in a building.

Sealants Assist with Repelling Stains

Customers often want to know the benefits of natural stone sealing before hiring us for this important service. Depending on the chemicals we use for natural stone sealing, the marble or granite can repel water, salt or dirt to prevent cracks and chips. For decks around an outdoor swimming pool, our clients may want a sealant that resists ultraviolet light or stains from grass. Alternatively, for stone countertops in a kitchen, a sealant that repels oily food substances is a better choice.

Sealants Help to Prevent Chips

Marble sealing in a home is especially important because this is a soft stone that is marred easily with everyday wear and tear. Topical over-the-counter sealing products are ineffective in high traffic areas such as entrance ways. This is why we use commercial sealants along with quality equipment to prevent stains and discoloration along with chips on natural stone surfaces in a building.
