Stone cill samples..decision made! Finally..

So we had originally decided to go with Portland stone for our stone cills and heads, but I’m not going to lie…I think it may have been because the architect had written this stone on the plans, and we didn’t really give it alot of thought! Needless to say we decided to bite the bullet and get some samples because it was a nightmare finding any good examples of the options online! And thought it may be helpful to others to share some photos!

As you can see above they can vary! The portland stone is the third one from the bottom and it is probably whiter than we would want to go with

Very luckily we’ve been able to try the samples against our bricks, always a bonus living on site!

We managed to narrow it down to these two above…left to right “Bath” and “Grey”…not an easy name to forget! Ha!

And we are going with the grey! It looks fab against the bricks and the soon to be anthracite grey windows plus its something a little different to the usual creams!

Here are all of them if it helps anyone, and we’ve also popped our YouTube video below to give a little more detail

And this is them wet, because inevitably they will get does rain in Britain…go figure!
