Difference between Ground and Floor

The difference between ground and floor is that the floor is created by man and the ground is natural. The floor and the ground are used colloquially as synonyms. Especially in more urban places the difference between these two terms has been diluted over time.

The ground is for the vast majority of Spanish-speaking countries synonymous with the floor, which means the place under our feet and that we step on.

Difference between Ground and Floor

In Spain, the differences between ground and floor become even more diffuse, since they call the apartments floor, for example, “I live in a flat”.

The surface part of the natural earth’s crust is called soil or humus, which differs from the concept of “earth”, since “earth” includes the soil, resources, structures and processes of the entire emerged surface of planet Earth.

The soil or humus (the upper part of the soil) is the mantle that covers the planet; it is composed of a mixture of disintegrated rock and organic matter in constant decomposition and renewal.

The floor is a flat surface in the horizontal direction, created by man and for his use. There are floors made of all materials such as wood, cement, tiles, mosaics, etc. The floors are generally framed in an architectural space .

We must become aware of the difference between the floor and the floor when we think that we live on a floor and that below it is the floor that houses the great diversity of living beings that we know and all those that we never knew or will know.
