Enhance your home using the timeless elegance of English stone

English stone has long been celebrated for its rich character and versatility, making it a popular choice for homeowners looking to renovate.

From elegant fireplaces and versatile flooring to hard-wearing paving stone, the Stamford Stone at Home range offers something for every home. We take a closer look at some of the most popular types of English stone and the different ways you can incorporate them into your space.

Limestone for luxurious interiors and gardens

Limestone for luxurious interiors and gardens

Limestone is a popular choice for homeowners seeking a seamless flow between their interior and exterior design, as it can be used to create distinctive features such as staircases and fireplaces as well as external steps and paving.

The rich composition of limestone flooring brings a touch of luxury to any room, whilst providing a natural and warm feel underfoot. The variety of finishes for limestone flooring means that it perfectly complements traditional, contemporary and rustic home settings. From the creamy, smooth and pillowed Westby Aged, perfect for a modern hallway, to the soft honey and cream fusions of the Walcott Aged, ideal for farmhouse-style kitchens. Limestone flooring’s soft, earthy tones make it the preferred flooring material for creating a soothing ambience.

Limestone also enhances outdoor areas, offering a charming foundation for patios and pathways. Its natural weathering creates a lived-in effect that ages delicately, maintaining its aesthetic appeal for many years of use. This makes limestone paving stones such as the lightly tumbled Cathedral Gold ideal for creating a luxurious garden space to make cherished memories in for years to come.

Strong and striking granite paving

Strong and striking granite paving

Granite is recognised for its strength and durability, making it a popular choice for outdoor paving and cobbles. This English stone brings a distinct sense of style to every space, with a range of colours that include classic greys, blacks and even vibrant blues.

Granite paving such as the Heritage Minster Black Granite provides resilience against heavy footfall, making it ideal for driveways and homes where the garden is the hub for socialising. The deep tones also offer a strong contrast to any surrounding greenery, creating an eye-catching path or patio area.

When it comes to creating a centrepiece of the home, nothing compares to a limestone fireplace. The subtle colour variations and fossiling mean that every fireplace is unique and looks great throughout the year, whether lit with a roaring fire in winter or dressed for the sunnier months. As such a prominent feature of your home, you want to choose a style of fireplace that perfectly complements your existing space. Stamford Stone at Home’s English stone fireplaces go one step further, offering a range of hand-carved fireplaces in a variety of classic and contemporary styles, including The Burghley and The Ashton.
