Inside the home, they can be used as a great feature wall that really brings the outdoors in.
Strategic down-lighting can be used to highlight the texture of the tiles and bring some warmth into the room.
They can also be used to add a soft, natural and textural tone to the living area and bathroom.
Sandstone Look Tiles:
One of the more recent trends is using sandstone look tiles, that don’t need to be sealed and can be longer lasting.
These are generally porcelain tiles that emulate the natural texture and layering of sandstone.
Being non-porous and non-slip, they could be the perfect addition to an outdoor patio or living area.
Using Sandstone Tiles Outdoor:
The different colours and bands within the sandstone are created by the different minerals and clays.
Being one of the best outdoor stone tiles, they also make a great option for creating a sophisticated outdoors space that can be used for entertaining.
Think pool-side, a balcony or even the cabana…
Given that they can be quite porous, it is often recommended that they be sealed especially if they are going to be used in wet areas or outdoors.
Indian sandstone tiles are quite popular for their strength and muted colours.
Wall tiles made of sandstone or quartzite are also very popular.
