Abbotsbury’s tumbled with pebbles, sand and water to give it a worn look, with a slightly uneven surface and edges. You’ll notice creamy white patches and areas of open texture within the stone that give it more character. Like all limestone, it’s warm underfoot, but you can use it with underfloor heating too.
Where we see it
Abbotsbury’s just right in a traditional home, but it can also look wonderful in a more modern, minimal setting, where it adds welcome softness and texture. Try it with the earthy brown paints in our Timber palette, such as Peat and Walnut.
- Vacuum with a brush attachment or sweep regularly to remove loose grit and dirt.
- Clean with pH neutral cleaners only so you don’t erode the sealant.
Need to know
- Instructions for installation are provided on delivery.
- All our stone floors must be sealed after installation and before grouting.
- Apply a second coat of sealant after grouting.
- Natural stone tiles will require resealing. Depending on foot traffic, we recommend doing this around every three years or when water starts to seep into the stone rather than pool on top.
- We recommend using Lithofin Stainstop to seal and reseal your tiles.
- Stone and earthenware flooring can be fragile when cut or trimmed. We recommend allowing for 10% wastage when it comes to installing these tiles.
