Working With Sandstone, Marble And Slate

Rob Byrne - Friday, December 28, 2012

Indian sandstone paving is a great option for those who are looking for a hard-wearing and durable option that is also fantastic to look at. Outdoor investments like this will be counted on their ability to live up to the elements, but we are sure that our Indian sandstone options are up to the task. We offer not only straight tiled options but tasteful sandstone circles that could be great for an outdoor seating area that could play host to many summer nights with family and friends. Alternatively it could hold a gazebo and could be the centrepiece of your garden, or alternatively it could be in one particular corner. Our Rainbow Sawn Sandstone paving is one of the more expressive options that we offer because each slab has its own unique colouring that extends through a spectrum of purples and oranges, none of which clash or seem out-of-place. This type of tiling is the perfect option for outdoor areas that will see significant use and it can create an entirely different atmosphere in your garden or patio.

Marble tiles are a classic option for indoors coming in light cappuccino that can create very modern looks that will handle light well and create a very light and airy atmosphere. This is opposed to slate tiles which can be deployed indoors but will have a tendency to darken an area. Of course, the deployment of each of these options will depend on the area, the amount of light and the adjoining walls, but with some thought a uniquely tasteful ambiance can be created with these natural products.
