Using Natural Stones on Kitchen Floors
There are so many decisions to make and things to consider when it comes to upgrading, extending, or even installing an altogether new kitchen! With so many alternatives and choices, it's easy to feel overwhelmed, but as stone experts with decades of experience, we thought we'd throw some light on the subject of natural stone kitchen floor tiles and get you some of our customer’s choices.
Long-lasting Limestone Tiles
For generations, this classic stone has been used as kitchen flooring. Its capacity to withstand the test of time demonstrates how tough and long-lasting a stone floor can be. Some limestones are naturally denser than others, and our range was picked with this in mind, resulting in a functional yet distinctive kitchen floor. Our limestone, which we have specialised in for years, is a solid favourite among clients. The beauty of limestone kitchen tiles changes over time as it is used, and there is something quite special about having a historic piece of stone installed in your home.

Sandstone, like Cashmere, is a hardy and practical option for kitchen tiles, with a textured surface that adds grip. Dark-brown tiles with a rustic finish go well with the popular modern look and can be complemented in a variety of colours. The sandstones are appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use and precisely represent this on-trend colour range.
