Sandstone

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock, composed mainly of grains of quartz or feldspar minerals.  It tends to have a coarser grain than Limestone which gives it better slip resistance.  The frost resistant types are ideal for outside flooring and cladding, such as Paria, York or Indian Stone.

Interior Designers like the Taupe look and the flat or honed finish of the Bateig Beige and Blue, which we recommend for internal use.  Sandstone is not appropriate for wet areas due to its high porosity.

While we hope you find these sample images useful in making an initial selection we must emphasise that there is no substitute for inspecting physical samples in person to appreciate the colour and texture of materials.  We would encourage you to visit our London showroom to see the wide selection of stone available.
