Limestone is a light-colored, porous natural stone formed from sediments in warm marine waters. Due to that resulting sandy texture, it has long been a top choice for architects and designers for centuries—even dating as far back as the pyramids of Ancient Egypt.
Limestone is prized for its variety in colors and designs and will add a timeless, rustic appeal to your home. As an organically-formed substance, Limestone tiles form a natural patina over time that enhances the beauty of your floors as they age.
WHY WE LOVE LIMESTONE
Limestone adds a charm to home exteriors that other, harder stones sometimes lack. They’re also one of the easiest stones to cut, meaning that you can design and arrange these tiles however you wish, without being constrained by the inherent shape of most other large stone tiles.
Limestone is also an easy fix in the event that a tile cracks or breaks. Tiles can be interchanged with relative ease, and advanced color-matching techniques ensure that your floor remains as uniform and beautiful as the first day.
HOW DURABLE IS STONE FLOORING?
Limestone is one of the softer varieties of stone—so soft, in fact, that many people prefer to use porcelain replicas of limestone to achieve the same texture, rather than deal with the regular maintenance that limestone requires. It should not be used in high-traffic areas but can commonly be found in residential kitchens, bathrooms and living spaces.
When properly sealed, limestone can be resistant to moisture, stains and other wear and tear. Though this flooring type has less longevity than other stones, it makes up for it by adding exquisite elegance to your home design.
Like other stones, limestone is impervious to UV rays from sunlight, so you can install it in sun-soaked rooms or outdoor spaces without worry.
STONE ALLERGEN CONCERNS
No matter their composition, stone tiles all have a hard surface that resists usual allergen culprits like dust, dirt, pollen and animal dander. The smooth surface of limestone makes it easy to clean, no deep scrubbing necessary, so you can keep dirt and allergies at bay with minimal effort.
