Sandstone tiles have been used in gardens and outdoor public spaces for many years, but did you know that they can be used in the family home? People often assume that sandstone can only be used outside the home, but they are wrong. Sandstone tiles are easy to install and incredibly versatile, as well as being very easy to clean with just water. Below we share some facts and inspirational ideas on how to enhance your family home with sandstone tiles:
Sandstone looks fantastic
Sandstone tiles are a natural stone, and as such looks beautiful when installed in your home. The ability to choose a wide range of tones and shades, also enables you to find the perfect tile for your chosen room. Sandstone tiles range from white, through to charcoal tones. No matter what shade you choose, what you will be able to convey, is a natural and earthy look to your home. The slightly roughened surface also means that the stone is warm to your bare feet while adding that touch of comfort to your home.
Can be used in any room
Sandstone tiles will look great in any room in your home. Some of the most popular spaces to use sandstone tiles are in the hallway and kitchen. This is due to the robustness of the stone and the fact that it can be used in areas that are deemed as ‘heavy use’. Many individuals believe that sandstone cannot be used in the bathroom, although it is best not used in shower or wet rooms, due to its slightly porous properties. using sandstone tiles in bathrooms with just a bath, is quite acceptable. Sandstone also looks lovely when used in the living room, when adorned with cosy rugs.
The durable stone
Sandstone is an incredibly durable material. It is quite literally as hard as rock, and will last you a lifetime. This is the reason that it is often used for outside use, but with such hardwearing qualities, it would be a shame not to use this stone in your home. Get creative and place these tiles in your kitchen, your living room, and even in the conservatory, for that warm and quirky look.
Every tile is unique
The true beauty of the sandstone tile is that every tile is completely unique. You really won’t find two tiles the same. This means that even if you choose a particular shade, the room will have a distinctive natural look because of the different tones that are used. Additionally, as there are many different shades to choose from, you could make a feature of your sandstone floor by incorporating a patterned theme.
