For people who are lucky enough to have a swimming pool area in their home, they need to think carefully about what flooring to use. Of course, this isn’t limited to just people with swimming pools, it also applies to people with Jacuzzis, hot tubs, and even bathrooms.

   Stone Types in the Pool Area

There are a number of factors that need to be considered when you are choosing a flooring type in any of these areas, including:

• Easy to clean
• Water resistant
• Able to withstand weather changes
• Non-slip
• Hard wearing
• Stylish

There are a number of different materials which can be suitable for paving around your pool area, but none are as good as limestone.

Why Limestone?

Limestone is often quarried from local sources and is the perfect choice for flooring around a swimming pool.
It is easy to clean and the limestone flooring tiles are designed especially to be useful around the house and cleaned without too much fuss. It can hold its own with both water such as rain, and with splashes and pool water. Certain types of limestone floor tiles are able to withstand the weather extremes that we face in Britain meaning that they won`t get damaged even in the strongest wind, coldest frost or hottest sun.

Limestone Tiles

Certain types of limestone tiles are non-slip, meaning that your family and friends who are gathered around your pool can walk around safely, without the risk of slipping over and injuring themselves. Likewise, if you are planning on inviting people over to enjoy your pool, hot tub or Jacuzzi you need to choose natural stone floor tiles which are hard wearing and not going to get worn down by groups of people regularly walking over them.One of the main reasons why people use limestone floor tiles is because there is a range of suitable tiles all of them bringing their own stylish touch to an area. They can give an old rustic look, a classically elegant finish to a traditional style pool or add those clean lines for a hygienic look.
