Formats and laying patterns

Once you have decided on one of the types of natural stone, the important thing to do is choose the appropriate pattern, according to which the slabs or tiles are laid in the room. The correct laying pattern makes a decisive contribution to the overall effect of the new floor. One of the most popular laying techniques is, for example, the modern format pattern, in which the stone slabs are placed next to each other. For a Mediterranean flair, it is better to choose the so-called Roman Association. Laying in strips with a fixed width and flexible length is also popular. In large and wide rooms, large stone slabs in a straight laying pattern look particularly elegant. Ultimately, however, the choice is entirely up to you and is always a question of individual taste. For the design of natural stone floors, TRACO offers a total of four different types of natural stone and 13 different natural stones in several colors. You can also choose from various options for the surface finish, from sanded to polished to rustic. The pattern of the stones makes each tile unique. Particularly popular types of natural stone for indoor floors are antique and dark gray shell limestone, light travertine and dolomite.
