Stone flooring made from natural limestone, granite and sandstone are some of the most interesting and enduring materials appropriate for floor tiles, slabs, paving stone and more. French limestone includes familiar names such as; Limeyrat, Lanvignes, Dalle de France, Dalle de Bourgogne. Spain is famous for Crema Perla limestone, a beautiful cream color. Domestic options in limestone, sandstone and granite hail from the states of Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma, just a few of the fine options available for stone flooring.
A custom natural stone floor often begins with large blocks of stone that are mined and then transported to factories where they are cut into thin slabs. The slabs are then cut into individual tiles. Veining, crystallization and even fossils may appear in some, but not all of the tiles. This type of variation is inherent with natural stone and adds to the elegance and charm.
Flooring tiles can be polished, honed, flamed or matte finished and can be cut in almost any size you desire. Although there are many domestic quarries/sources right here in the USA, the most popular with our clients, tends to be French limestone, due to the wider range in colors, variety of non-slip finishes and most importantly, higher density/hardness/durability.
