Use of Stone in Monks Lantern Weybridge
Beautiful large size Thala Beige polished limestone tiles were laid throughout the main entrance hall, up the main staircase and on the landing floors. The same stone was water jet cut to form a circular motif on the raised part of the entrance hall floor.
The back staircase, kitchen/family room floors and the lower ground floor/pool area floors were tiled using Grigio Perla limestone sandblasted to give it a lovely granular finish. The pool area walls were tiled in striking Moss Green slate which added dramatic interest to the understated limestone floor.
Two contrasting islands were fitted in the kitchen: the first was in polished Caesarstone Oyster with a sharks nose edge, the second was in Bianco Eclipsia Quartzite.
