Stone Flake Floor

flake flooring

Simon and his team from Impact Surface Solutions recently installed this stone flake flooring in a residential shed using custom flake colours selected by the client. 

We asked Simon a few questions about stone flake flooring to help you better understand it.

Firstly, what is stone flake flooring?

Stone flake flooring, also known as decorative flake flooring or terrazzo flake flooring, is a type of flooring system that combines resin with decorative flakes of natural or synthetic materials. It is commonly used in commercial, residential, and industrial spaces for its aesthetic appeal, durability, and versatility. Read more on our website about it.

What are the pros and cons of stone flake flooring?

Stone flake flooring, like any flooring option, has its own set of pros and cons. Here’s a breakdown:


Aesthetic Appeal: Stone flake flooring offers a visually appealing finish with a variety of colours and patterns. The decorative flakes add texture and depth to the flooring surface, resembling natural stone or terrazzo.

Durability: Stone flake flooring is highly durable and resistant to wear, impact, chemicals, and UV exposure. It can withstand heavy foot traffic and is suitable for both interior and exterior applications.

Versatility: Stone flake flooring can be installed over various substrates, including concrete, wood, and existing flooring surfaces. It is suitable for a wide range of applications in commercial, residential, and industrial settings.

Easy Maintenance: The seamless nature of stone flake flooring makes it easy to clean and maintain. Regular sweeping and occasional mopping are usually sufficient to keep the floor looking its best.

Customization: Stone flake flooring offers a high degree of customization, allowing for unique designs and patterns. The combination of different colours and sizes of flakes allows for endless possibilities to match the design aesthetic of the space.


Initial Cost: Stone flake flooring can have a higher upfront cost compared to some other flooring options. The cost can vary depending on factors such as the quality of materials, installation method, and customisation options.

Installation Complexity: Installing stone flake flooring requires specialised equipment and skilled labour. The process involves multiple steps, including surface preparation, application of resin and flakes, and sealing, which can be time-consuming and labour-intensive.

Slippery When Wet: Depending on the type of resin used and the surface texture, stone flake flooring can be slippery when wet. Adding anti-slip additives to the topcoat or choosing a textured finish can help mitigate this risk.

Limited Repair Options: While stone flake flooring is durable, repairs can be challenging if damage occurs. Minor scratches or chips may be repairable, but extensive damage may require partial or complete replacement of the flooring.

Resin Yellowing: Over time, the resin used in stone flake flooring may yellow or discolour due to exposure to UV light or certain chemicals. Choosing a high-quality UV-stable resin and using appropriate maintenance practices can help minimise this issue.
