Sandstone is an attractive natural stone floor covering, which is popular for its distinctive style. Imitating the look of a beach or desert sand, the golds, reds, browns, and tans of this often multi-coloured stone can add the perfect decorative touch to a room.
We think that the main benefits of sandstone flooring are:
There is an indescribable quality to natural materials, which is obvious in sandstone flooring. Ranging in colour from medium tone whites to multi-coloured flurries and all the way back to charcoal and black, sandstone can cover vast stretches of hues, and yet it always has a feeling of earth and rock, which can be lacking in many of its imitators.
Sandstone can’t match slate or granite for durability, but it is tough enough to last for several decades if properly cared for.
Because sandstone is formed by nature itself, the patterns, colours and hues found in any individual piece are completely unique and different. When sandstone is quarried, it is formed from giant slabs, which are then processed and cut into smaller pieces. This means that every piece of tile in every sandstone floor is one random sample of a great masterpiece of mountainous nature that stretches across the world.
Sandstone rock is often natural craggy and jagged, before levelling the process using gauging to create floor tiles. Sandstone tiles can be further honed making them even smoother, flat and glistening. Our sandstone tiles are often quite textured and rough giving them a rustic and traditional appearance, ideal for an older property or used for exterior patio areas.
Since sandstone flooring is installed as individual tiles or pieces, tiles can be removed and replaced with relative ease.
