Kota Gray limestone is a classic rugged looking stone that creates a stylish and chic design. It has a stony mottled pattern which results in a slight variation in tone throughout each tile. For this reason, there are no two identical stones, a byproduct of its natural origins.
Kota rock is quarried from Southern India, a world-famous stone region that produces some of the highest quality materials in the world. Kota Gray is known for its supreme balance of durability and affordability, making it one of the best value for money materials on the market.
In general, limestone is a hardy material. It has been used for centuries to create functional buildings that are known to stand the test of time. Used as part of your interior or exterior design, it is sure to last decades with the correct care and attention.
Wild and unrefined, this tile has a natural cleft face. This is a simple enough surface to achieve as it is the natural texture of the stone. The tiles are carved to shape but have been left with any irregular bumps and ridges, which make the stone so unique, intact. This is a great option for those looking for a rustic design but can also be contrasted with sleek materials and crisp lines to create a nature-inspired modern style.
A natural cleft face has a number of functional benefits in addition to its design potential. The tile has a lot more traction than a smooth surface, so even while the tile is wet, it has enough grip to stop it feeling slippery underfoot. This is ideal for outside spaces such as patios and porches which will be subjected to the rain. It's also perfect for bathroom floors and hallways.
Furthermore, a natural cleft face is an incredibly durable finish, requiring minimal maintenance to ensure that it looks its best. Wear and tear will not impact the tile's appearance in the same way as a refined finish is affected. In fact, some people prefer the look of a worn-in natural face as it gives the stone an authentic antique effect.
This stone has a natural back and therefore, there may be a slight variation in thickness between the tiles. This is suitable for flooring, with the correct installation.
Kota Gray can help you achieve a classic relaxed backyard setting with its natural, rugged gray hue and textural face. Add luscious foliage and florals for a truly wild space. Incorporate your favorite outdoor furniture and a wooden pergola with climbing plants for the ultimate place to spend your summer evenings.
