Hailing from quarries in the Spanish Iberian region, this soft-toned Bateig Blue Sandstone is elegance defined. A blueish mid to light gray, it is subtle and contemporary, every interior designer's dream. It has a stony pattern consistent throughout the stone but not intrusive or disruptive. It is an ideal tile for those who require an up-to-the-minute color base that will blend in with their modern interior.
Sandstone is often thought of as a soft stone, but Bateig Blue is famously hardwearing and durable. It is created by compressed layers of sand, silt, and other minerals over a period of millions of years. Once it has been sealed with a stone protector, it is moisture resistant, resulting in a hardy stone suitable for almost any application. It can create a light and bright contemporary kitchen when contrasted with a gloss finish, white cabinet, or add it you're your hallways for a welcoming entrance to your home.
Our Bateig Blue sandstone has a muted-effect, honed finish. Its subtle color tones require a surface which will complement its natural stone texture. A honed finish is achieved when the tile is ground to a beautifully flat, smooth surface. All imperfections are removed, any lumps and bumps flattened. The effect is a matte, satin finish, gorgeously contemporary and highly desired.
A honed finish has excellent design potential, but it's also incredibly practical. Unlike other finishes which require constant maintenance, a matte effect cannot be worn-down or dulled over time. In fact, wear and tear only adds to the stone's natural quality. It requires only a regular clean with a pH neutral cleanser to keep it looking fresh. It's also a finish with enough traction for use in a family home. Where some finishes can be slippery, the satin texture has a slight grip, preventing skidding.
If you want to achieve a subtle, demure look with a contemporary edge, Bateig Blue sandstone is ideal. Its blue toned, gray color palette is totally on trend. Its natural coloring is worlds apart from the harsh, metallic tones displayed by some rocks. Instead, expect to achieve a tranquil, understated look.
