Limestone kitchen flooring

No kitchen is complete without a natural stone or limestone floor. If you want durability and the ultimate in style – natural stone’s the best way to go. It’s a sustainable choice; stone is an excellent conductor of heat and it is easy to clean so is particularly good for anyone with allergies.

These days al fresco dining is super popular and you may choose to run your internal stone kitchen flooring outside into your garden – to create a seamless link between an inside room and your external stone patio? Stone flooring and bi-fold doors work really well together – this design feature looks stunning and can really open up an indoor space. The continuation of flooring from inside to out, draws your eye beyond the room and into the outdoor space.

Another good design idea is to continue your flooring beyond your kitchen and flow it through to adjoining rooms. Linking for example, dining areas, utility and/or cloakrooms, will create the illusion of added space and fluidity. In addition, this arrangement also gives design continuity to a space, the result of which is often more calming and pleasing to the eye.

Invest in natural stone

When you choose natural stone flooring, you are making a real investment in your home and adding quality to your life. Interior limestone kitchen flooring tiles actually improve with age! Over time, the stone blends in contour and colour slightly – just increasingly looking better and better. In this respect, it really is like no other material.

Limestone flooring is the ultimate in luxury. On warmer days you’ll notice a coolness underfoot and when the colder days arrive, a rug and some underfloor heating will spread the heat throughout your home perfectly.

Limestone floor tiles are incredibly practical. With its hard, non-porous surface, natural stone flooring is easy to keep germ and dust-free. It is an excellent choice for anyone with an intolerance to dust or who has a respiratory condition or sensitive immune system. It also helps with the cleaning regime too! Your kitchen and bathrooms have the highest volume of traffic through them daily. So the more hardwearing and easy to clean these places are, will make life so much easier for you to keep on top of. This, in turn, is likely to enhance the enjoyment you get from your home.

Wall tiles and cooker hoods

Most kitchens have some kind of splashback on the walls. Using natural stone wall tiles will not only enhance the room but will also act as a very stylish, durable and practical splashback. Another look that is both practical and desirable is to use stone tiles to create window sills. These can make a feature of a particular window whilst also creating a practical, usable and easy to clean additional space.


Extra features made of natural stone add more luxury and timelessness into a room. These include traditional Belfast sinks and bespoke, hand-carved cooker hoods.

Limestone is highly resistant to mould and bacteria, so these tiles are especially suited to use in kitchens and bathrooms.

Stone kitchen counters

Stone kitchen countertops are wonderfully practical; they are hard-wearing, easy to clean and durable beyond almost any other material. Wood, for example, will need protecting regularly and often changes colour, fading or sometimes going a little black and mouldy.

Whatever style of natural stone you choose, you can rest assured that you will benefit from the skills of our master stonemasons. Every order is bespoke and no two pieces of stone are the same, making each kitchen project unique to each customer.

“I am delighted with the beautiful quality of limestone which we have put down in our kitchen/back hall. I found the [Stamford Stone] team to be extremely helpful in their advice on how to lay the stones and treat them. Living up in Scotland, I thought dealing with a company so far away might have been difficult, however, nothing has been too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend them to anyone.”
