If you cannot resist the natural beauty of limestone tiles for your new kitchen or bathroom then youmay need to know how to care for your new limestone floor. The main potential issue you need to be aware of is that acidic substances (including lemon juice) can cause significant and noticeable damage to limestone because limestone is a calcium-based material. So it is essential that the tiles are sealed after they have been installed for added protection.
And here are some more easy pointers towards keeping your beautiful limestone floor looking good for years to come.
There is no denying that limestone tiles are beautiful – they have a unique beauty that cannot be matched by even the best quality porcelain. But there is also no denying that they need regular maintenance to stay looking as good as new (whereas porcelain tiles need very little, if any, maintenance). Whether you choose limestone tiles in a polished or honed finish, a tumbled or brushed finish they will always require significant effort to keepthemlooking good.

About Our Blog
I think you'll agree that we all love our homes and love to improve them as much as we can. While the percentage of people who regularly do DIY has fallen in recent years that doesn't mean we are not interested in how our homes look – we are just less keen on doing the hard work ourselves. But whether you are a DIY fan who can turn their hand to anything or someone who prefers to sit back and let the decorator or interior designer work their magic we hope you will find some inspiration here.
If you are keen on colour or prefer neutrals, love natural beauty and texture, or super perfect finishes; whether you are an upcycler on a budget (I think that's many of us really) or able to splash out on designer items and beautiful unique art we are all drawn together by our love of all things in the home (and the garden too).
And if you are moving house we love to talk about that too – the excitement of a new place – new colours and finishes to choose, maybe some new furniture. And just the excitement of a new outlook from the windows, new plants sprouting in the garden (if you are lucky) and a new area to explore are reason enough to go through all the stress of the house buying process, packing up our things, entrusting them to a removals company or even shipping them off to self storage, and then unpacking all over again at the other end. But it is definitely worth it if you are fortunate enough to have found a better house for your needs and wants. And our pro tip about self storage if you do choose to use it for long-distance moves or simply to help with the logistics of the move is to use one that has a collection and delivery service. Whatever method of moving all your household possessions you choose to use don't forget to compare removals and storage prices and services from several different companies.
