I saved my favorite part of the home for last!
The Oak Bamboo quartzite slab floor was definitely my favorite part of the home....but it was also the hardest to get a picture of. So I apologize in advance that the pictures aren't better.
Oak Bamboo quartzite at one of our local slab yards, Italia Granite. The problem was they didn't know what to do with it!
The designer came up with using a large piece of it on the floor in the front entrance of the home.
What a great idea. It's a stunning feature to walk in and see this beautiful floor.
We laid the slab first and the the wood floor installers came in and installed the wood around the slab. It ensured a perfect fit.
Master Closet. You can see it here.
Slab floors are not easy or inexpensive to install. A lot of clients are so surprised to learn this. It seems like you just set the slab down and you are done, easy peasy.
It's not so easy. Be sure to hire an experienced & knowledgeable fabricator to set a slab floor. You don't want that expensive slab cracking and breaking!
You'll usually spend more on the installation costs plus slabs are more expensive than tile, so you've got a lot more to pay in materials as well.
Overall slab floors are a very expensive option, but if you find a gorgeous slab that you just can't live without---putting it on the floor is a great way to show it off!
