As natural materials, light and neutral tones, and nature-inspired designs are hailed as the biggest decor trends of 2022, it’s the perfect time to incorporate natural materials into your home improvements. If you’re looking to upgrade your space with some natural features, the addition of natural stone flooring can transform any room into an area that offers a practical, durable flooring solution with a beautiful finish that can also be extended outside the home to transform your garden space with stylish landscaping, creating the patio area you’ve always dreamed of.

Whatever your reason for choosing natural stone flooring, our products offer style and practicality to make maintaining a beautiful home simple. Knowing which flooring will best optimise your space and vision is key, so we’ve included a small selection to give you a quick guide to which natural resource can best enhance your home.

Optimising your existing space with natural stone flooring

English Stone

Our locally sourced Clipsham limestone is sourced from the Lincolnshire Oolitic belt in a variety of finishes. With its use on renovation projects such as Jesus College, Cambridge and the Bishop Edward King Chapel in Oxfordshire, our Clipsham limestone offers a rich architectural history that also complements modern homes. 

Our recent Rural Self-Build, Leicestershire project shows how easily our English Stone flooring can enhance your existing home layout. Our client chose the Walcott Honed tiles for their kitchen and utility room, seamlessly blending the two spaces together with creamy, bright tones that matched the neutral decor. For a bolder statement, the Walcott Octagonal limestone floor tiles channel Victorian chic with octagonal corner features, peppered with traditional warm neutral tones.

In addition to adding our stone flooring to the kitchen and utility room, our Rural Self-Build, Leicestershire client also optimised their existing games room by replacing their existing flooring with our Charlbury Mix flooring, channelling a rustic finish through the seamless blend of soft grey and classic beige tones. This classic fusion of warm and cool tones in this limestone floor tile offers a neutral, rich palette of tones to complement a variety of home designs and room styles. If you’ve an appreciation for a more modern aesthetic, the hugely popular Charlbury Beige combines smooth beige tones with a marblesque effect to instantly make this stone flooring the highlight of any room. The neutral finish of this stone tile brims with character and offers a hardwearing solution for busy family homes for many years to come.

World Stone

We’re proud to be a part of the Ethical Stone Register to ensure all of our limestone floor tiles are responsibly sourced from around the world. This allows us to offer a wide variety of colours and finishes for homeowners to enjoy with the peace of mind of our high standards of quality and sustainable practice.

Our Cathedral Gold tiles are perfect for creating a warm, golden patio area that emanates the rural chic of the Cotswolds whilst you relax in the sunshine. Our Self Build Period Eco-House project demonstrates how seamlessly this rich stone can blend with even a classic Edwardian period home and be customised to suit your landscaping needs. On this particular project, we milled the Cathedral Gold paving stones down to 20mm to accommodate the garden’s pool and mechanical cover. The result is a sleek, natural stone patio feature that seamlessly fuses with the other stone features of the garden and house.
