Top Products of 2021

Posted on 21st December 2021

As this year draws to a close, we feel it’s the perfect time to share with you what our best selling products of 2021 have been. From decorative aggregates to veneer on a roll, here’s a round-up of what our customers have loved the most at Stone & Surfaces Direct.

We boast a variety of stone products suitable for interior and exterior use, and with so much to choose from, we guarantee to have something to help with the property design project you have in mind.

The year of 2021 has been a successful one for Stone & Surfaces Direct, now it’s time to see what have been our best products of the year.

Decorative Aggregates

All year round, our decorative aggregates are popular for creating practical driveways, minimising weed growth in garden surrounds, and achieving a tidy and low maintenance look.

In particular, our South Lakeland Blue Slate Chippings, in sizes 20mm and 40mm, have been our bestselling aggregates of 2021. Renowned for their strength, durability, and colour fastness; these beautiful slate chippings emanate from the Silurian period and are over 450million years old.

Our South Lakeland Dove Grey Chippings 20mm have also been a firm favourite over the past year. These highly versatile, low maintenance grey aggregates are ideal for garden paths, parking spaces, driveways, rockeries, planting borders, and general ground cover.

Walling & Rockeries

Designing your garden with walling and rockery adds texture and can create features that catch the eye. All of our natural stone walling and rockery products are ethically sourced and environmentally friendly.

South Lakeland Blue Slate Paddlestones and South Lakeland Blue Slate Crushed Rock Fines have been at the top of many of our customers' garden makeover essentials list. It’s clear to see why due to their high-quality composition, low maintenance properties, and versatility.

Stunning sandstone sourced from the west of Cumbria, our Cumbrian Buff Brown Tumbled Sandstone Walling is another bestseller at Stone & Surfaces Direct. With this product, the natural uniqueness of each walling piece means every project has its own exclusive look.


We have an impressive collection of natural stone and porcelain paving to choose from. Both with notable differences, depending on what you are looking to achieve for your property, either product is a great investment to transform your living space.

Kandla Grey Porcelain Paving is the revolutionary paving solution that creates the look for less. It is easy to maintain and has long-lasting performance, being weatherproof, frost-resistant, stain-resistant, and abrasion and scratch-resistant.

Our Midnight Black Porcelain Paving has also proven popular in 2021. Manufactured with excellent slip resistance, high durability, low maintenance, and full-colour body; it’s the perfect paving solution for creating atmospheric, moody indoor and outdoor spaces.


When it comes to interiors at Stone & Surfaces Direct, we’ve seen a huge demand for natural slate veneer on a roll and veneer sheeting. This lightweight 100% real slate is easy to install and flexible to bend for fitting on curved walls and surfaces.

With slate veneer, this means you get natural stone with fewer joins and a product that is easy to fix and a fraction of the weight of solid stone tiles. It can adhere to almost any flat surface in kitchens, bathrooms/wet rooms, and fire surrounds.

In particular, our Autumn Rustic Slate Natural Veneer, Silver Shine Slate Natural Veneer, and Smooth Rust Metal Effect Veneer On A Roll have made it to our top selling interiors products of the year.

With over 25 years of experience distributing natural stone paving, porcelain paving, aggregates, and interior solutions worldwide; we are the people to help you achieve the perfect patio, garden, or home interior. Talk to one of our experienced stone professionals about your specific needs today.
