Limestone is one of the most commonly used kinds of sedimentary rock and is found all across the world. The vast majority of limestone is made from marine deposits such as animal, plant and other types of organic matter which were deposited on the ocean floor millions of years ago and were then compressed by the weight of the water above it. This is what gives limestone its fantastic variety in colour and impressive shell and fossil detailing.
Our Limestone Tile Range
Limestone tiles can be found in an enormous range of colours that include greys and blacks, greens and blues, yellows, browns and off whites. For this reason, there will be a limestone tile to suit any colour theme in your home. Limestone flooring can come with several different surface finishes to give different looks to your project.
- Polished – perfectly smooth gloss finish, gives a very contemporary, yet detailed and bespoke look
- Honed – smooth surface with square cut tiles edges
- Tumbled – worn, tiles with distressed edges, which gives a more rustic feel to your project
- Brushed – a slight surface texture to give grip under foot, especially good in areas that tend to get wet (for example bathroom floors) due to the extra grip achieved using this finish
- Antiqued – a term used for various distressing methods to achieve a worn look. These are ideal for people who want to achieve that cottage-like look as these tiles look more distressed and used

How do I maintain my limestone tiles?
Deep clean and re-seal every 1-2 years to make sure the tiles keep their full detail and glamour on show. Always use a neutral detergent to clean limestone, so avoid any bleach products when cleaning natural stone.
Do limestone tiles require a lot of maintenance?
It can get scratched by metal furniture legs and will need slightly more maintenance to keep looking its best by deep cleaning and re-sealing every few years. We offer these cleaning and re-sealing services if that is something you require – for more information contact us by email or over the phone.
What are important things to note about limestone tiles before I buy?
You should always check the absorption rating and the abrasion resistance rating of the tile – not all limestones are suitable for every home. If the tiles have a lower abrasion resistance rating, use walk-off mats at entrances and expect the material to patina rapidly. If maintenance is an issue, choose a limestone with a lower absorption rating and higher abrasion resistance.
How should I grout my limestone tiling?
You should always seal limestone prior to grouting or use, and use a grout that is similar in colour to the stone to avoid a picture-frame effect.
