The classic, versatile stone with lots of interesting shell and fossil patterns and colours that range from white, through honey and grey to black. Limestone improves with age and is easy to maintain. It is used mostly indoors, but there are plenty of limestones that are suitable for outdoors use too, and it works as both a floor or wall-covering.
Marble is one of the hardest of stones used for domestic building projects. It has amazing colour variations and patterns and is often used for bathroom surfaces and wet rooms.
Sandstone is slightly softer than limestone and other stones, and does not have so many colour variations or as much fossil marking. It is generally a tan colour but there are also red, white and black sandstones. It is often used for exterior paving projects, but is perfectly suitable for interior floors.
Many of our stones are available in large, flagstone sizes, which are suitable for outdoor paving, patios and paths.
Slate is very hardwearing and easy to clean. It has a very consistent charcoal/grey colour, with little markings. The colouring makes it very easy to clean. It is very hard-wearing and can be used to create floors with real character.
Terracotta is made from clay that is baked. It has a wonderful, earthy, deep orange colour. It is most often used for flooring that is hard-wearing and easy to maintain.
Travertine has naturally-occurring pits in the surface. These are usually filled with grout which gives the stone instant character, or with special resins for a smoother surface. Travertine is best for floors that are not too heavily used.
Our special porcelain is extremely durable and offers 100% consistency of colour and pattern. We have a range of different surface textures to meet non-slip requirements. This is usually used for large, commercial environments, but can also be used in the home for floors and wall coverings.
These are hand-made decorative tiles made with the ‘encaustic’ technique, which means the pattern is inlaid into the body of the tile rather than on to the surface. This results in the colour and pattern remaining even though the tile wears down slightly.
