Our story

We are stone flooring installation specialists of North Yorkshire, founded by Yorkshireman Nick Knibbs. The Stone Floor Company combines project management, design flair and artisan technique to create beautiful flooring.

Nick was brought up in Bedale near Ripon in the Yorkshire Dales. He has worked man and boy in tiling for nearly thirty years. He began working for a flooring company in Bedale as a summer job when he was a teenager. He continued his studies at Scarborough Technical College and in Newcastle, gaining a degree from Teesside. Nick then worked for local kitchen and bathroom companies before setting up his own tiling company.

“I love getting out and about and meeting people. I get great job satisfaction from seeing an installation through from design to completion. It’s a great way to express my creative side.” – Nick Knibbs

Stone flooring installation specialists

The Stone Floor Company offers a personal service with distinction. Nick is determined to make sure the floors of Yorkshire’s most prestigious homes look their very best, from Beverley to Skipton, Ripon to York. This is why he makes sure we take the utmost care when it comes to design and installation.

Delivering a pleasure, creating a masterpiece

Some tilers and builders lay tiles in the order they remove them from the shipment. We study each tile for pattern, colour and repetition to create the most pleasing and restful effect. We also take into account focal points, wall colours and lighting states.

This is why we spend so much time laying out tiles and stonework before we begin installing them.
