WHY CHOOSE HAINAUT BLUE STONE FOR YOUR LIVING ROOM FLOOR

Your bluestone floor becomes even lovelier over the years

While ceramic floors wear down over the years and lose their surface texture, bluestone floors only become more beautiful as time passes. Thanks to the lovely patina they gain as they age, your bluestone tiles will end up looking even more unique than when you first laid eyes on them. You don’t have to worry about your floor getting damaged either, as bluestone is particularly solid – even falling objects or children playing won’t affect it whatsoever. Whereas ceramic floors don’t tend to last all too long, installing a bluestone floor is a sure way to add long-term value to your home. In addition, the small white speckles typical of bluestone makes your floor look all the more distinguished. Did you know, by the way, that those charming details (they’re called crinoids) are fossils of small marine animals, such as seahorses?

 

Keep warm thanks to your natural stone floor

If you opt for a bluestone floor, you have a warm future ahead of you. Not only is bluestone cosy-looking and soft on the feet, you can also effortlessly combine bluestone tiles with underfloor heating. Bluestone is an ideal heat conductor and will distribute heat evenly. That’s right, you can walk barefoot around your living room or bathroom and your bluestone tiles will feel blissfully warm.

 

A care-free home thanks to a safe bluestone floor

If you like the idea of your children running around the house care-free, we recommend you opt for bluestone tiles with anti-slip qualities, such as our blue flamed and EnoSkin collections. Especially suitable for bathrooms, around swimming pools and on terraces, these tiles offer safety and comfort all in one. Thanks to their slightly textured surface, these anti-slip finishes feel comfortable even under bare feet. In addition, any scratches will naturally fade. In other words, bluestone tiles with anti-slip qualities are appropriate even for the busiest spaces of your home.

 

Bluestone tiles made specially for renovations

Thinking of renovating your home? In that case, too, bluestone tiles are the perfect choice. Did you know Carrières du Hainaut offers extra-thin tiles (they’re only 15 millimeters thick) in various finishes? That means you can install new tiles without having to remove the old ones. Simply put your new tiles right on top and you’re done!

APPLICATION CONFIGURATION

Strength and character for exteriors or interiors walls are the two words that come to mind when thinking of the Sclyped tiles. The perfect opposite of chiselled tiling, Sclyped bluestone tiles present this natural stone in its rawest form, embellished with thin parallel lines that give them a clean, regular look. The fine, rough lines thus created bring out the sparkle of the material. Combine this surface - with its wide strips of broken raw rock - with well-chosen lighting fixtures: the stone sparkles under the effect of indirect lighting.

Although their anti-slip property makes them ideal products for outdoor flooring, their rough appearance has in the past also attracted creative minds working on unique wall applications.
