Blending Limestone & Quartzite Creates Elegant Tile You Have to See

Natural stones, like limestone and quartzite, have represented the epitome of luxurious design for centuries. However, maintenance of these materials can be expensive for the average consumer. Looking to add a touch of elegance and opulence to your home without tedious upkeep? Consider LimeQuartz – a porcelain tile that blends the look of quartzite and limestone. This color-bodied porcelain stoneware from Ascot Ceramiche is stylish and incredibly durable. 

The Difference Between Limestone, Quartzite and Porcelain

Limestone is a natural sedimentary stone formed over millions of years from the remains of shells, coral, and other marine organisms. Quartzite is a metamorphic rock derived from sandstone. Often mistaken for its synthetic counterpart – quartz, natural quartzite is formed beneath the earth’s surface when quartz-rich sandstone is transformed through high pressure and temperatures. Porcelain is a man-made material composed of various types of clay, sand, and feldspar. It is fired at high temperatures and high pressures to create an exceptionally sturdy surface.

The Benefits of LimeQuartz

Unique and Tasteful Design

  • Effortlessly blending the look of limestone and quartzite, it creates its very own one-of-a-kind aesthetic. 

Neutral Color Palette

  • From warm and welcoming to cool and crisp, this quality Italian porcelain reaches new heights of versatility and compliments any motif.

Durability and Functionality

  • LimeQuartz has a PEI V rating, making it suitable for all residential and even commercial applications such as restaurants, hotels, hospitals, etc. Like all porcelain stoneware, it is non-porous and does not require sealing. This makes upkeep a breeze, even when used in exterior settings. 

Color-Bodied Porcelain

  • Pigment has been added to the tiles body composition to ensure it matches the surface which makes potential scratches or chips hardly noticeable. This is a distinguishing characteristic amongst other porcelain tiles on the market. 

If you’re looking for flooring with all of these features, then LimeQuartz is the perfect option. 

How to Care For Your Porcelain Tile

Once your tile is installed, you’ll want to avoid using harsh chemicals or cleaners. Instead, stick to mild soap and water, white vinegar, or a pH-neutral cleaner. Finally, sweep and mop regularly to keep your porcelain tile looking its best! If you have any questions about caring for your porcelain stoneware, contact us, our experts would be happy to help.
