Limestone tiles are made of a long lasting stone that stands up well to exposure and humidity. Limestone is the result of millions of years of sea shells and boned of sea creatures settling as sediment on the ocean floor. The calcium in the bones and shells combines with carbon dioxide in the water to form calcium carbonate, which is the basic mineral structure of the stone. Limestone’s wide array of shades, colours, textures and durability make it a very popular stone for both traditional and contemporary interiors and exteriors. Acid-based cleaning chemicals can etch limestone. Limestone tiles should only be cleaned with a neutral or mild alkaline-based cleaner.
Limestone tiles can be bought in various colours ranging from white limestone to black limestone tiles all great for that designer look.
