Limestone is a medium hardness rock created by the depositing of minerals at the bottom of a body of water. Over time, these sediments compress, forming the hard rock we known today.
It has been used for generations to create hardwearing flooring and home decor, but for even longer, it has been used in construction. In fact, one of the longest standing structures in human history, the Great Pyramids of Giza, were created using it. Therefore, limestone is more than capable of resisting the wear and tear caused by family life. Ramon Gray limestone is suitable for even high traffic areas of the home such as hallways and kitchens but also works great on a backsplash, feature wall, and more.
These Ramon Gray limestone tiles have a honed finish. This is a matte looking surface that is created when the stone is ground down. Any irregular bumps or pits are removed, creating a totally smooth texture. There is no buffing involved, instead, it is left with a satin-effect, just like a whipped cream.
A honed finish is suitable for most locations as it provides the perfect balance of functionality and refined design. Compared to a glossy finish, it offers a better degree of traction, making it suitable for flooring in all areas of the home. It's great for use in bathrooms or entrance halls that are prone to dampness on the floor, providing a slight slip resistance in these situations.
It also requires less maintenance than a more refined finish. For example, you may want to regularly buff a polished stone to keep its beautiful shine in place. With a honed finish, the tile is innately dull, and therefore it looks great despite the effects of wear and tear.
Ramon Gray limestone is subtle and natural-looking. It gray-brown color palette blends with a wide variety of designs and hues. Pair it with a classic matte shaker style kitchen and a wooden countertop for a beautiful and relaxing country-inspired interior. This is a look that will never fall out of fashion, timeless and classy. Alternatively, try it as your entrance hall flooring. Cream painted walls and your favorite antique furniture will make this is cozy and effortlessly cool welcome into your home.
