5 Great Looks for a Stone Floor in your Conservatory

Limestone Conservatory

With the UK’s changeable weather, a conservatory is a great way to make the most of the sun, summer and winter. As a result, conservatories are hard working spaces and need to be practical – but that doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish, too. Choosing a stone floor provides the best of both worlds, as you can create an attractive room that’s still easy to clean.

Creating the look you want is easy with our range of natural and processed stones. At Surrey Marble and Granite we have an extensive selection of stones ready to view in our workshop, so you can come down and take your pick. We recognise that every home and every family is different, and we’ve got the right stone for you, whether your tastes run to classic marble, trendy granite or a rustic limestone floor.

1. Outdoors-Indoors

Make the conservatory an extension of the garden by creating an integrated, natural look. As well as making space for delicate plants, you can create the illusion that the conservatory is part of the garden by matching a limestone floor to the patio tiles. Selecting a stone shade that’s found locally, will only enhance the effect. Light wicker furniture completes the look and can easily be moved outside on a sunny day.

2. Turn-of-the-century Glamour

Evoke the elegance of an Edwardian summerhouse or complement a period building with a beautiful marble floor in the conservatory. Brits have been building conservatories since the 17th century, so there is a great deal of history to draw on. While a modern, uPVC conservatory might not suit certain homes, using traditional materials, like wooden supports and limestone floors, means that almost any home can have a sun room added, without losing its character.

3. Futuristic

While most domestic stone floors are in traditional materials, there’s no reason not to choose the colours that strike your imagination. Modern processed stones, such as Quarella and Silestone come in vibrant colours and patterns, from starlit night to pillar box red. A statement floor in stone is durable and expressive.

4. Beach House

The crisp whites and summery primary colours of a nautical or beach house theme are ideal for the sunniest room in the house. Natural, rough hewn granite or limestone floors are perfectly complemented by natural and found décor, such as driftwood and sea glass. White furnishings accented with strong colours will easily carry you from a sunny July day to a cosy winter evening.

5. Ever Changing

Let you décor keep pace with the seasons by creating a neutral backdrop that you can update with new colour accents. The natural neutrals of stone floors are an ideal foil for the vivid, evocative Christmas colours of holly and evergreen, bright summer citrus shades or the mellow hues of autumn.

Living in a period building means finding a balance between preserving the original character and features of the property and creating a pleasant, modern family home. When it’s time for renovations or repairs, the question of materials and character become more urgent: should you try to repair an original marble staircase? Match a granite fireplace?
