Stone Finishes

Our stones come in a range of finishes. In some areas you may want a more textured finish for better slip resistance. If you are restoring an older property, an ageing process such as distressed will help you to match existing materials. Different finishes can bring out a particular colour tone, or they can smooth out the surface. The finish can sometimes be just as important as the actual stone in achieving the precise look that you want.

Here is a short description of the finishes that we use:

Distressed: flat surface, fettered and cushioned edges, usually crafted by hand

Etched: sand-blasted finish for texture

Honed: leaves the surface smooth and flat

Riven: naturally split stone for a slightly uneven surface

Satino: textured surface, edges usually square

Seasoned: a combination of Tumbled and Satino. Rounded edges and a textured, non-slip surface

Tumbled: soft, round edges, grained surface

Velvet: the stone is sandblasted to give it a bleached, etched effect and then undergoes a Satino process for a tactile, velvety feel

Vintaged: textured surface with fettered edges

Weathered: hand-fettered edges, open-grain surface

Worn: a smoothing process to create the effect of antique, riven flagstones
