How To Install Jura Limestone Tiles


Limestone Tiles are durable and are one of the hardest available. This quality makes it usable in many areas whether in the interiors or exteriors. They are available in the shades of Blue Gray which makes it look really elegant on floor as well as walls.

The Jura Lime stone tiles look great on walls with their color palate changing from blue to gray. The ammonites or belemnites in the stone make them look exotic. Because of the porous nature of the tiles, they can be used for heating purposes through under floor mechanism. They look extremely good in both matte finish with a smooth hone and a polished finish.


The color and pattern of these stones make them uniquely beautiful. This has become very popular and used in many homes. The texture is different from any other stone in the market. These are mined in the Jura Mountains, Germany. This has been proven to be the toughest limestone available. They are used a lot in high usage areas like hallways, kitchens and dining areas. The natural limestone will add a touch of class to any entry way. It could also add a rustic look to the outdoor bathhouses. They are known for their enduring beauty.



Depending on the style of the room, or the whole house, use the color and pattern. The tiles can be installed skillfully if proper tools are available. If the sub floor is already laid, then concrete should be poured on it and leveled. If it is a remodeled floor, a backer board, which is water resistant, is needed. Measure the room and buy the number of tiles accordingly. Always buy a few more for fittings at the edges or to compensate for damages. The store manager would advise on the right kind of grout or mortar to use for the floor. Laying of these should be started from the center of the room. Lay the stones next to each other first without securing. Organize them and then start plastering to the floor. Porous stone like this might need a sealant. A sealant makes them stain proof and water resistant. If sealant is not used, water and other spills will be absorbed by the stone which makes the stone to change color and stain easily. To fill the edges perfectly, some stones might need cutting. While cutting the stones use proper tools and safe guard yourself against the dust and stone chips. After laying all the stones, allow them to dry for a few hours. Fill in the gaps with grout. Clean the excess with a soft and damp cloth. Once the grout is dried completely, the floor is ready to use.



Limestone Tiles are available in many types like the  Blue Gray,  Beige and  Blue. They give a beautiful texture to the floor and these colors are desired by many homeowners. The blue and gray shades add a touch of royalty to the houses. They are durable and less porous when compared to the normal variety. The edges are cut uniquely into diamonds to emphasize their pattern and texture. These polished tiles enhance the creativity in the house and match with the regal décor of the house.
