    Marble Flooring for Palaces, Cathedrals and your Home

    What do Buckingham Palace, Westminster Cathedral and ordinary Surrey homes have in common? While some wags might say they’re equally expensive or equally hard to heat, many Surrey families are now discovering the advantages of marble flooring, the same stone used in palaces and cathedrals.

    A natural stone with a unique elegance, marble has been used in important buildings for thousands of years. It’s incredibly durable and can withstand hundreds of thousands of footsteps. In Rome, the Pantheon’s marble floor was first laid over 18 centuries ago and a million visitors cross it every year. It remains beautiful, a testament to the quality of the worker’s craft.

    Natural Elegance

    The unique veining pattern and rich colours sets marble apart from other natural stones. For many years, marble was incredibly expensive, making it the ultimate luxury good. In ancient times, it was primarily used for palaces, temples and statues. Today, thanks to modern quarrying techniques, marble is an affordable luxury. In fact, many families find that a stone floor is an excellent investment as it is much more durable than carpet, wood or lino.

    Cutting edge technologies developed over the last decades have enormously expanded the options for marble flooring in the home. While period buildings suit very traditional styles of stone work, marble floor tiles come in all shapes and sizes, and can be used to create modernist or futuristic designs. Whether you’re looking for a warm, homey feel, an edgy, minimalist design or the cool elegance of classic white marble, Surrey Marble and Granite have a stone to suit you in our collection.

    Created by a natural process, marble from each different quarry around the world has different characteristics. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’ve selected high-quality marbles from both the UK and abroad to build our collection. We’re proud to offer a broad variety of textures and colours, without compromising on quality.

    The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home. This room is used more often than the living room for grabbing snacks, drinks, and preparing meals. The trend is to create a beautiful room that is inviting as well as functional. Today, more and more homes are building constructed with stone worktops. The main reason stone is the popular choice is that it lasts longer as well as enhances the beauty of the room.

    I recently stumbled across an amazing artist who works solely in slate! The nature of the shape of slate creates stunning visual effects in terms of shadow and light. The image shows Alan Turing, who “did more than any other to make possible the breaking of the German Enigma codes at the secret Station X at Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire.”. On his website http://www.stephenkettle.co.uk, Stephen explains that the process takes a great deal of time, an average of 60 hours per week! He goes on to say that this process […]

With an enormous range of colours, textures and materials available, limestone tiles are a great choice for any home.
