Types and Uses

Flagstones add a touch of class to any property, new or old. FarmhouseFlagstoneslogo.jpg

FarmhouseFlagstonesMill.jpgStone flags have been popular flooring materials in Europe since the 13th century and bring to mind images of romantic castles. Many flagstone floors in period properties are centuries old and have aged beautifully. This is part of the attraction of a stone floor.

Today, flagstones are most likely to be chosen for kitchens, bathrooms, conservatories and hallways. Flagstones for exterior use are also available and will generally be of greater thickness.

When laid properly, flagstones will last for decades and are easy to look after. Regular sweeping or vacuuming with a brush attachment and a wipe with a ph neutral cleaner is all that is required for sealed interior flagstones.

Natural flags come from sandstone or slate quarries in the UK or from abroad. A wide range of colours and finishes is available, with different areas providing characteristically different stone, as in the honey gold of the Cotswolds, blue-grey of Scotland and light grey of the Bath region.

With natural resources being limited, natural stone flags can work out expensive, although many people believe it is worth paying for their beauty and longevity. An alternative, at a more realistic price, is to use crafted replica flagstones.

Featured Company - Farmhouse Flagstones

Farmhouse Flagstones has more than 25 years’ experience in hand-crafting replica flagstones. Great care is taken to create authentic looking flags that are virtually indistinguishable from real stone.

All styles have been faithfully copied from originals quarried from source and the careful hand-crafting process, with no mass machining involved, FarmhouseFlagstonesEbony.jpg means that Farmhouse Flagstones can replicate the beauty of timeworn flagstones.

Farmhouse Flagstones come in various colours and finishes, with ranges including Old Mill, Chateaux French Limestone, Old Yorkstone and Classic Ebony. A colour match service is available, offering a way for people with centuries-old stone or slate floors to extend the look at a fraction of the cost and with the modern advantage of being able to use under-floor heating.

The company also has an installation service if required. Being very knowledgeable of the product, Farmhouse Flagstone installers cope expertly with tricky areas such as uneven floors or working around curved stairs. A full design service is also available, for all sizes of floor. The company supplies prestigious large developments as well as private clients.
