5 Best Flooring Options For 2022

Whether your style is traditional or contemporary, limestone flooring, natural or stone effect, is still set to be the flooring of choice in 2022.

It’s no surprise that limestone has been used for centuries in homes, both inside and out. That natural stone look, whether natural limestone or stone effect, has an earthy and soft luxuriousness that cannot be achieved by any other stone. So if you’re searching for stone or stone effect tiles to transform your new build, farmhouse or period property, Mandarin Stone offers a beautiful range of practical flooring options for your application.

Kast Sand Porcelain

Our Kast Sand Porcelain has a warming tone that lifts any indoor setting. The surface grain is a cross between concrete effect and terrazzo effect, two sought-after styles, making these stone effect tiles one of the best-selling porcelain tiles of the moment. Available in a variety of different sizes with a version in 20mm thickness designed for outdoor applications, allowing you to create a seamless inside-out combo. Though our Kast Sand offers warmth, there are also lots of greys in the range. If you’re looking for a contemporary look, our Kast range is the one for you.

Bayonne Provence Limestone

Sometimes nothing beats the real thing, and our warm and creamy Bayonne Provence Limestone with antique finish has a melange of shades that is simply unrivalled. These limestone tiles have that lived-in and worn look of stone that’s been walked on for hundreds of years. Even though antiqued, our Bayonne range suits contemporary settings as well as period properties and country cottages. They can be styled accordingly, with the character adding to any interior. Being natural limestone, these tiles require sealing during the fixing process.

Lulworth Buff Porcelain

For that worn stone look but with porcelain tiles, choose our Lulworth Buff Porcelain. An antique finish, tumbled edge and abundance of character gives these limestone effect tiles the appearance of real limestone with all the practicalities of porcelain. In a warm creamy shade, these tiles have a traditional stone look, but for those looking for a more contemporary vibe, our Ramon Buff Porcelain in grey is an optional alternative. Like our Kast range, our Lulworth and Ramon ranges can be used inside and out, with a thicker 20mm version more suited to the outdoors. Although designed as flooring, these versatile tiles can be used on walls and with a choice of sizes and formats available you can create the tiling look you desire.

Trulli Ivory Porcelain

Pale cream stone flooring with a washed appearance is an inspired way to merge traditional and contemporary styles. Our Trulli Ivory Porcelain has a tumbled limestone look that make it easy to create luxurious stone flooring in your home. Available in three different sizes, including Roman Opus sizing for recreating the classic tile-laying pattern perfect for traditional style kitchens and hallways. With a brilliant array of colours in the Trulli range, you can find the shade to suit your taste and style.

Lumi Porcelain

Another tile with inside and outdoor options, Lumi Porcelain has a classic off-white limestone look. The surface has a grainy texture with realistic veining and subtle tonal variation, giving the limestone effect tiles a timeless elegance. Available in several sizing options, the large format variations such as the 1195×1195 mm tiles are ideal for creating a spacious feel, giving the illusion of a larger, more open space. With indoor and outdoor options available, you can match both spaces with the same tiles for a seamless appearance. Use in any room, our Lumi Porcelain is best used as flooring and can be used to tile the full downstairs, all the way through the house.
