With its natural texture and warm, toasted color palette, our Mahogany Sandstone tiles are perfect for creating a relaxed and cozy environment. Whether you're looking to build a rustic outside space or a charming kitchen, bathroom, or hallway, there's no doubt that these richly colored tiles will give you the look you're searching for. They have a consistent hue, with a fine grain and no harshly contrasting veins or crystals. This makes them ideal for those who are looking for reliability in their design.
Sandstone is famous for its versatility, having been used in constructions across the world for generations. Whether it's forming the building blocks for large structures or adding a touch of nature to interior design, this is a stone that delivers. It can be used for both internal and external applications and has the added benefit of being able to resist freeze-thaw conditions. This makes it ideal for all locations, including those where a cold wintery snap is inevitable.
Sandstone is created in the same way as other sedimentary rock formations, by the build-up of layers of minerals over the course of thousands of years. As the pressure increases, the sediments fuse together, forming a hard and durable rock. It is naturally quite porous, and therefore many choose to seal the stones upon application. This will prevent stains and moisture damage, as well as deepening and enriching the stone's color.
These tiles have a natural cleft face with a split edge. This is a rustic and rugged look which incorporates the stone's original texture. The rocks are split to the correct size and shape, but their edges remain uneven and jagged. This is ideal for those who want to achieve a relaxed, cobbled together look, unrefined but oozing character and charm.
A natural cleft face and split edge also provide incredible functional benefits in terms of maintenance and traction. For example, the textured surface gives a floor sufficient slip resistance, so that even while the tile is wet, it is unlikely to feel slippery underfoot. Plus, the naturally craggy edges and surface are intentionally unrefined; therefore, any wear and tear will not damage the stone's effect. This is great for achieving practical flooring in all areas of the property that will not require regular upkeep.
Our Mahogany Sandstone tiles are the perfect solution for your floor tiling needs. Both inside and outside the home, they'll create a rustic and relaxed design that will last for decades. For a country-inspired kitchen design, use them as flooring amongst creamy neutral toned, shaker style cupboards, and a solid oak countertop. Add your favorite potted florals and herbs to balance the harshness of solid stone with the softness of beautiful foliage.
