deVOL’s clients love stone flooring, so it was a natural progression to source the highest quality stone floor tiles for their kitchens. When we started, travertine tiles were retailing at around £60 per square meter and high street stores were making very high margins, some still are. Floors of Stone aim to offer the best tile prices by making small margins, but selling large volumes of high quality, natural stone tiles. We pride ourselves on offering the most competitive flooring prices in the UK and now offer Limestone tiles, Travertine tiles, Marble tiles, Sandstone flagstones and Slate stone floors, as well as Porcelain tiles and Quarry tiles.
In 2013 deVOL Kitchens moved their showrooms and design offices to Cotes Mill, a historic water mill just outside Loughborough. In early 2014 Floors of Stone joined deVOL at Cotes Mill and now has a stunning galleried flooring showroom and offices so customers can browse kitchens and stone floor tiles in the same place. The deVOL group of companies now has 130 members of staff and has enjoyed critical acclaim for over 20 years, featuring on television and in magazines. Visit www.devolkitchens.co.uk to see our stone floors featured in deVOL's kitchens.
Cotes Mill's history dates all the way back to the Domesday Book, which gives the whole building a wonderful sense of atmosphere and character. We have tried to preserve the history of this amazing mill, by designing the showroom around the building to retain original features, such as the large water wheel, which is a focal point of the space. Customers can enjoy their time exploring the mill and browsing our tile displays to find that certain something to complete their dream interior. With the low winter sunlight streaming through the large windows and dancing across the mill pond, this tranquil setting is the perfect place to come and be inspired.
If you want to read more about our beautiful Cotes Mill showroom, our blog has lots of pictures of how we have grown with and adapted the space www.floorsofstone.com/blog. We also add regular blogs about new products; the latest news from around the mill; our general musings and our lovely customers' completed projects. We love seeing our tiles in situ, and our most recent blogs included pieces on the Light Tumbled Travertine in the Loadbrook House Kitchen, the Super White Matt Porcelain in a deVOL kitchen in Chelmsford, our new Dove Grey Tumbled Limestone and a new way to lay our Wood Effect Porcelain.
