Natural stone tiles can be beautiful but as a natural product they are less uniform in colour and pattern, and require more planning for use and installation. Mass-produced stone tiles are uniform in width and length.

Some stone tiles such as polished granite, marble, and travertine are very slippery when wet. Stone tiles with a riven surface such as slate or with a sawn and then sandblasted or honed surface will be more slip-resistant.

The hardness of natural stone tiles varies such that some of the softer stone (e.g. limestone) tiles are not suitable for very heavy-traffic floor areas. On the other hand, ceramic tiles typically have a glazed upper surface and when that becomes scratched or pitted the floor looks worn.

However, because of the complex, nonrepeating patterns in natural stone, small amounts of dirt on many natural stone floor tiles do not show.

Slate is an example of a less porous stone while limestone is an example of a more porous stone. Different granites and marbles have different porosities with the less porous ones being more valued and more expensive.

Most vendors of stone tiles emphasize that there will be variation in colour and pattern from one batch of tiles to another of the same description and variation within the same batch.

Rubber floor tiles have a variety of uses, both in residential and commercial settings. Some common uses include flooring of garage, workshops, patios, swimming pool decks, sport courts, gyms, and dance floors.

There are several other types of traditional tiles that remain in manufacture, for example the small, almost mosaic, brightly coloured zellige tiles of Morocco and the surrounding countries.

Your journey into the past starts here…

National Trust Collection. Every interior or design collection has its muse, its story, its guiding light, but few are as steeped in historic significance as this – our new tile collaboration with the Trust, Europe’s largest conservation charity. Come to our showroom and look at our amazing collection.

The Collaboration

The new tile collection is inspired by the properties, gardens, coastlines and countryside that are cared for by the Trust.

With each and every tile, you’ll step into one of the National Trust’s historic houses or be transported to the scenery that surrounds it.

A tile from the National Collection is an investment in our heritage in more ways than one.

A minimum of £10,000 from sales of this collection will help the Trust continue to care for nature, beauty and history for everyone, forever. So let us travel through time with tiles.
