Natural stone tile finishes

Natural stone tiles are supplied in various finishes, each creating a different effect and look.

Each will have situations in which they are more suitable. Take a look below for more information on each finish.

Honed tiles

A smooth, level, low-sheen surface that is largely scratch-resistant. Good for use in high-traffic areas due to its non-slip properties.

Polished tiles

A smooth, level, shiny surface creating a high-gloss look. Can be slippery when wet and more prone to scratching. Should be used in low-traffic areas and on walls.

Riven tiles

A rustic, uneven surface which is created when a slab of stone is split along natural bedding lines, such as in York stone. Riven tiles can be used inside and outside.

Flamed tiles

Ideal for use outside due to the rough, non-slip finish that is created when the surface of the stone is burst using an intense flame.

Tumbled tiles

A tumbling machine is used to create a pitted surface and chipped edge that resembles that of an old, aged floor.

Hand-aged tiles

Our hand-aged natural stone tiles have all been finished using traditional techniques to create unique and individual pieces. Smooth, undulating surfaces and chipped, worn edges create tiles that replicate those that have been laid for many years.
