Limestone Tile

Limestone is a sedimentary rock and is very common in architecture for its smooth grain surface.

Polished Limestone

Polishing is the process of creating a smooth and shiny surface by rubbing it or using fine abrasives. A polished finish gives the surface a high luster and strong reflection of incident light, almost mirror-like.

Honed Limestone

A honing/matt process is similar to polishing, it provides a smooth, satin-like nonreflective surface.

Sandblasted Limestone

A sandblasted / shot-blasted surface provides an irregular pitted surface by impacting sand or metal particles at high velocity against a stone surface.

Bush Hammered Limestone

A bush hammer is a masonry tool used to texturize the stone. It exists in many forms from simple hand-held hammers to large electric machines. A bush-hammered finish, similar to a hounds tooth pattern, creates a rough, but uniformly patterned surface with impact tools varying in coarseness.

Antique Brushed Limestone

To create a brushed finish (sometimes is referred to as a leathered finish), manufacturers gently brush the stone surface until it becomes textured and appears worn-in. The brushing process closes the stone pores which helps it to become more stain resistant. A brushed finish also hides fingerprints and water spots better than a polished surface. Like a honed finish, a brushed finish dilutes the color of the stone itself.
