Beautiful Stone Flooring
Westminster Stone have been manufacturing beautiful stone flooring products for over 30 years. Browse our extensive collection of traditional authentic reproduction interior flooring, including ranges of flagstones, tiles and paving.
At the fore front of authentic stone development, all of Westminster’s ranges and moulds are made in house, and taken directly from carefully sourced original masters. Cotswold flagstones for instance are taken directly from Cotswold stone masters, so little or none of the unique texture and detail is lost. Other stunning reproductions come in the form of Henslate Flags (Hen meaning Old in Welsh). These stunning originals were reclaimed from a farmhouse flagstone floor in Gwynedd, and reproduced to reproduce a replica flagstone floor, indistinguishable from the original.
Westminster Stone have done the same with Yorkstone flagstones. Without doubt the best newly quarried riven York Flagstone reproductions available, and in a number of traditional subtle colours. The Chelsea Gold flags, (with warm brown buff and beige hues), the Yorkshire Street Flags (with olive and khaki colour hues), and the Lancashire Mill Flags (in ‘hobnail grey’ with subtle khaki hints) are all simply stunning reproductions. The Farmhouse Flagstones in cream and buff stone hues give a lighter more subtle air to your room. Practical and incredibly hard wearing, these high strength fibre reinforced products embrace modern production methods, whilst retaining their traditional appeal. Available in random flagstones, or in single sizes these traditional classical flagstone flooring products will add instant maturity to any room setting.

Stone Floor Finishing
Offering a range of seals and stone flooring finishes from ‘invisible,’ light sheen, or an antique aged and waxed effect, there are a number of finishes that will enable you to have the superb traditional floor that you want.
If you decide to shop for stone flooring tiles, there are various factors that you should take into account.
Often grading systems are used to rate the quality of the stone. These systems can refer to the shape, size and thickness of the stone as well as the general condition. There are three levels; grade 1 refers to high quality, unmarked materials, grade 2 is materials with minor defects such as chips, scratches, or slightly irregular surfaces and Grade 3 materials have major flaws in size, shape or surface.
The absorption rating refers to how porous the stone is. The more absorbent the stone is the more susceptible it will be to cracking in cold weather and staining. There are four absorption levels that stone can have; Non vitreous, Semi-vitreous, Vitreous and Impervious. In terms of these absorption rates, Sandstone generally is the most porous stone whereas Slate, Limestone and Travertine have a medium level of absorbency and Granite is waterproof.
Coefficient of Friction
This will measure how slip resistant various materials are and the higher the coefficient, the more traction a tile will have. This is especially important dependant on where you plan to place your tiles which leads to the next important aspect of indoor or outdoor rating.
Indoor or Outdoor
You will find that some stone flooring materials are more suited to the outdoors than others. Most of the factors above will determine whether a material should be used in an open air environment.
Unique Bespoke Service
There’s a bespoke service too: If you like the colour of one flag, and the texture of another, Westminster’s production process will allow that. Or if you like a product but would like it a little lighter, or a lighter browner (for instance), Westminster will achieve it.
