Many fine historical buildings had elegant marble flooring laid throughout. Here at English Salvage we have some fine examples of these striking floors. Common marble flooring types are Carrara; with a warm white grey streaked colouring, Breccia; with swirl patterns, rich red and gold colours, and finally Calacatta; similar to Carrara but with a whiter background, it is the more sought after of two types.
Slate is a hard wearing, natural product which creates a stylish, usually dark grey flooring. During the 18th and 19th Centuries, as well as flooring and roofing, slate was also used for blackboards, writing slates and even as tombstones.
