Chesil’s one of our smoother limestones, but it’s still got a bit of texture, thanks to its natural flecks and fossil markings. You’ll spot creamy white and darker brown patches that give the stone a lovely grain. Like all limestone, it’s warm underfoot, but you can use it with underfloor heating too.
Where we see it
As it’s smooth and even, Chesil’s one of our more versatile limestones – it could easily work outside the kitchen in a hallway or living room. It also looks great with our unbleached linen fabrics.
- 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.
