Hemworth, the most authentic limestone effect tile

Our team of Buyers have toiled away for months to create the most authentic limestone replica and succeeded! Using the latest HD technology, they've managed to create a canvas that encapsulates the true nature of our Amazone limestone modular. Carefully selected, the canvas brings out the varied shading and texture found in real limestone but with the low maintenance and durability of porcelain.

Hemsworth is available in a modular pattern lending itself well to a country aesthetic as it neatly replicates classic flagstone floors. Its point of difference from the Amazone range comes in the form of larger pieces with a neater, less rustic edge to provide a modern twist to a classic limestone look. Not sure you want a modular tile? It comes in a 44.7 x 67.2cm single tile too!

So what are the pros and the cons to choosing Hemsworth, a limestone stone-effect tile over the real deal?

Pros

  • The Hemsworth range has a higher slip resistance than Amazone making it a great option for outdoor paths, hallways and kitchens where water is often present
  • As a porcelain tile, Hemsworth doesn't need to be sealed to protect the finish of your tiled floor from stains and spills. Not only is this a cost saver but also less hassle year after year when a real limestone needs to be resealed

Cons

  • A real limestone will slightly wear over time but in a homely, warming fashion making it look more authentic which won't happen with a porcelain version
  • The rustic edging and texture of real limestone adds instant country chic to a space whereas the more modern clean lines of the Hemsworth range is less aesthetically effective and requires more styling if you want to achieve a true country look
