Natural Stone Finishes
Our stones come in a range of finishes – these may be for aesthetic or practical effect.
In a bathroom, for example, you’ll probably want a more textured finish for better slip resistance.
If you are restoring a property, an ageing process such as a distressed finish will help you to match existing materials.
Seasoned is a combination of tumbled and satino with rounded edges and a textured, non-slip surface.
Velvet the stone is sandblasted to give it a bleached, etched effect and then undergoes a satino process which gives it a tactile, velvety feel.
Products that are supplied in ‘patterns’ consist of combinations of set size flagstones, which enable you to follow classic patterns such as French, Greek, English, Moroccan, Irish, American and Dutch as illustrated here. This means you can lay your stone floor to these patterns without the waste associated with cutting uniform flagstones to appropriate sizes.
So for example, one set of ‘English pattern’ consists of 13 stones, and 2.23m2 in total.
Some of our stones are available in different widths and random lengths, so that you can choose whether to lay floors in your own free-form pattern or in a regimented design.
When buying a pattern you must buy at least one complete set of stones and therefore a minimum number of square metres, depending on the exact quantity of stone within that pattern.
