Beautiful Stone Floors Of NeoLith By TheSize

March 13, 2012
When you walk into a room for the first time, chances are, one thing that really stands out is the floor. If it is covered in carpet, you may first notice the color, or maybe discoloration. Perhaps a stain or two makes you look more closely. For stone floors, you might notice the shine, or lack thereof. Scratches marring the surface will definitely stand out. These imperfections detract from the entire room, regardless of its size, color or decor.

A room is simply a room until a creative touch gives it life and turns it into a cozy space or piece of art. With stone floors by TheSize, NeoLith adds a creative, artful touch to any room with ease. And with this touch from the gallery is a luster, a shine so deep it gives you pause. You stand back and appreciate its qualities as you would a fine painting. To place this art on the floor where it can be destroyed seems wrong. Therein lies the quality.

With the amazing process designed by TheSize, clay and sand are magically turned into a beautiful stone floors with a protection all their own. The secret is the glaze and how it is applied to the other materials to form a perfect union. A seal so complete there are no pores, so instead of wreaking havoc, a spilled glass of wine is easily wiped away. A protection so strong that scratches are nonexistent. This process also gives the floor a consistent look throughout the house.

Because of its unique strength, the NeoLith stone floors are able to be installed with ease. The material can be quite thin, so that equals a much smaller weight in the full lengths and the tiles of various sizes. Transportation and manually moving the material can be done comfortably. Laying the slabs takes little effort, as it is not back breaking work like most stone floors can be. With only two workers, the floor is laid quickly and without hassle. This equals less cost for the installation.
