What is Limestone?

Limestone stone is ideal for today’s more casual and comfortable environments. Generally the soft beiges, tans and light shade of grey are suitable for bathrooms and counter tops.

Ideal for: Vanities, counter tops/reception desks, staircases and wall lining.

Limestone is a sedimentary rock that is formed at the bottom of lakes and seas, as organic matter settles to the bottom. As more and more layers build up over thousands and millions of years, adding more and more weight, the heat and pressure cause chemical reactions to take place to harden the sediments into solid stone.

Limestone also has been the choice of architects and engineers as it is one of the oldest and most durable of building materials. It has long been recognised as the premium countertop material for bathrooms, counter/receptions desks, staircase and other interior surfaces.
