Silver Shadow Honed Marble

We’re very lucky at Floors of Stone to be based in such a convenient location in the middle of the country close to the M1, so customers are able to reach us easily. We are also especially lucky to be based in Loughborough, a busy market town with lots of surrounding villages. This means we get lots of local customers who love coming to visit us at the Mill and exploring this beautiful building. A lot of these customers have also bought kitchens from our sister company deVOL Kitchens, who are also based at Cotes Mill, with three stunning floors of kitchen displays and an ever changing array of antiques.

Many of our local customers will come back to us several times, as they take on various projects within their house and as our showroom is so easy for them to visit. One such customer came to visit us last week and proudly showed me pictures of their recently renovated bathroom on their phone. They were so beautiful I asked him to email them across to me so I could share them on our blog!

They had the Silver Shadow Honed Marble from us – one of our most popular marble tiles. The tiles were laid by Rob Booton at Hathern Tile, our recommended tiler. They laid the tiles in a 610 x 406 size both on the floor and the walls. The result was this amazing wet room that wouldn’t look out of place in a 5* hotel or a luxury lifestyle magazine!

The tiles have been laid with a tight grout line to give this seamless appearance between the floor and wall. Sleek, clean lines have been continued with the bathroom suite and the chrome detail gives a contemporary finish and complements the grey tones of the tiles.


The same customer also had the Light Tumbled Travertine in the opus pattern from us and a Shaker Kitchen from deVOL. We can’t wait to see the finished kitchen if it’s as good as their bathroom!
