If you want to use limestone, remember it is a porous stone and must be sealed upon installation and then twice a year. Limestone is a natural stone and offers an Old World look to it, however, if the maintenance for it is not something you want to undertake, I would suggest finding another flooring material for your kitchen.
Grouting: Allow time to dry after installing all your tiles on the floor. You can now start grouting afterwards. Some tiles like natural tiles, marble, slate, limestone, granite and porcelain should be sealed first before grouting. You can also use a specialized sealer to waterproof your tiles and make them more resistant to dirt and staining.
The other sort of material that you might need to use for your kitchen tile ground surface is tile, vinyl, cover or board. These are produced in various styles - and every outline makes them resemble an alternate material from what they are - with adapted textural designs like wood or stone or marble or mosaic.
Different Kinds of Tiling Material: Natural materials for kitchen tile flooring include porcelain, quarry, pebble and stone. These ties are textures, rough and durable - and also, relatively more expensive. They offer a great authentic look to your kitchen and give it that extra classiness that you might be looking for. Porcelain and ceramic is easily chipped and damaged - and one needs to replace the tiles often. A good idea would be to use glazed ceramic or porcelain tiles for your kitchen tile flooring - although you would have to be careful on the smooth surface.
Modern kitchen flooring options: For more modern kitchens, homeowners can try using resins and glass. Resins are great for spaces with irregular shapes and sizes. The material comes in liquid form and is poured onto the base, creating a single continuous piece of flooring. You can choose to add glass beads as insets to create a shiny, textured finish.
Until recently unless you were lucky enough to have a hardwood floor; the variety of materials available for kitchen flooring was restricted to just a few options - vinyl, laminate or waterproof carpet tiles. The possibility of using stone flooring was generally restricted to those with large budgets.
