South Carolina is one of the wetter states along the eastern coast. While snow is rare throughout the state, wet weather is common throughout the rest of the year. On the other hand, hurricanes are common in South Carolina, with peak season from June until November. Slippery floors are a concern where wet weather is abundant, so if you want to install a slip resistant floor consider natural stone tile (like terrazzo or slate) with a matte finish. Matte finish floors are less slippery than those with a high gloss finish. You could also invest in a honed or tumbled natural stone too. These are great options for entryways and other spaces where wetness is tracked from the outside in.
Throughout parts of South Carolina is the classic southern style called Antebellum architecture. These types of houses are often Greek Revival plantations with large columns and natural stone throughout the exterior and interior. In other parts of the state are bungalows and coastal homes that have a lot of hardwood and tile, especially in eat-in kitchens and bathrooms. The rich history combined with modern architecture combines in South Carolina to bring an eclectic variation in architecture throughout the state.
