Cleaning Limestone Tiles

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.

Maintaining Limestone Tiles

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.

Why We Love Monochrome Bathrooms

Black and white bathrooms always look so stylish whether they are in a traditional Art Deco style or designed with modern minimalism in mind. They are perfect in character or period homes and also in modern homes. And, best of all, they don’t date quickly so will look great for years to come so be a good investment in improving a home.

Bathroom manufacturers and the buying public all love white in bathrooms, whether it is the bathroom suite or large, glossy porcelain tiles there is really nothing to compare with gleaming white lines. White bathroom suites look equally good in period reproduction styles as they do in sleek contemporary styles and any of the huge range of bathrooms to choose from will look fabulous when complemented with black. Accent tiles in black can be used to create unique patterns on borders or tiled panels and black accessories such as vases, towels etc. enhance the monochrome look. If you are feeling very daring (and either don’t live in a hard-water area or have a water softener fitted) then I have even seen a black Art Deco style basin. Just be sure it will suit your style of home and bathroom (I’m personally still cautious about using any sort of coloured sanitary ware).
