The floor is the hero of the home; it’s the one surface in your house that you come into contact with the most. An expert in hard surface flooring, Fibonacci Stone shares five essential tips for choosing the right floor for your living space.

“Your floor is the one interior element that will stay with you the longest in your home,” says Director of Fibonacci Stone, Michael Karakolis. “Choosing a new floor for your home is a big decision, because it’s going to remain with you for the next 15 to 30 years,” says Michael. “Particularly with hard surface flooring solutions, such as terrazzo tiles, there are a number of elements to consider, which will guarantee you choose a flooring solution that will not only evolve with you and your family, but maintain the same finish and material quality as time goes on.” Michael highlights five key factors, essential to choosing the right flooring for your home.

1. Ensure your flooring is versa-tile

Flooring is a long-term decision, so it’s important to select a flooring colour that will support the ongoing evolution of your home space and lifestyle. With each Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tile colourway encompassing a spectrum of hues and tonal depths, the aesthetic quality of each colour composition is perfectly homogenous, allowing the floor to seamlessly adapt to refreshed interior colour schemes and new fittings throughout its long-term life cycle.

2. Make a lasting choice

Strength and hardwearing durability are important attributes in a hard surface floor. Designed for longevity, Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tiles will last up to 30 years, meaning you won’t have to replace your floors for years to come. Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tiles can also be polished in-situ at any time, meaning scratches can be easily repaired, and flooring rejuvenated years after installation. Produced using a high percentage of natural aggregates and low percentage of inorganic binder, consistently distributed throughout the tile, Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tiles are exceptionally strong, durable and flexible. Fibonacci Stone also utilises UV resistant pigment oxides to ensure colour consistency is not compromised.

3. Let your floor look after you

It’s important your floor offers stability and reliability, while also supporting your wellbeing at home. Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tiles feature superior physical properties, providing outstanding strength, durability, dimensional stability, versatility and flexibility. As a result Fibonacci Stone tiles absorb building movement where many other surface materials might crack or delaminate. Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tiles also have excellent slip resistant qualities, making them a safer choice in areas such as the kitchen and bathroom.

4. Make your floor a sustainable solution

Fibonacci Stone is the only Australian/New Zealand supplier of terrazzo tiles to achieve a score of 100 per cent under the Green Star “Fit-Out Calculator” by the Green Building Council of Australia MAT-4 Concrete Credit. Key points contributing to this achievement are an ISO 14001 Accredited manufacturing process, high recycled content, and the Fibonacci Stone Stewardship Contract to disassemble the floor and arrange for it to be recycled. Achieving the lowest water cement ratio in its category, Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tiles also contribute to Green Building credits.

5. Maintain your floor with ease

Ensure your hard surface flooring is easy to maintain and doesn’t require a complicated and expensive maintenance program. The aesthetic and physical mechanical qualities of Fibonacci Stone can be maintained for many years with a simple cleaning routine. Regular sweeping helps to prevent large grit particles from scratching the surface while a dash of methylated spirits or PH-neutral detergent can be added to hot water for mopping. Sealing your Fibonacci Stone terrazzo tiles is also recommended.
