- free samples
Striking and bold, these Morning Glory Sandstone tiles are an exciting splash of red on an otherwise traditional stone. Quarried in India, they are exotic and warm, bringing an almost sun-baked feel to any interior. Uniform in coloring, Morning Glory has no distinct veins or crystals. The shade of red may vary within each tile adding to the natural stone effect.
Sandstone is a classic sedimentary rock formed by layers of mineral deposits compacting over millions of years. The effect is a soft, almost dusty-looking stone that feels homely and warm whatever its surroundings. It creates a beautiful earthy look that cannot be replicated by porcelain or ceramics.
It is a naturally porous stone that requires a protective coat to prevent stains and moisture damage when used internally. However, once sealed it creates a perfectly hardwearing tile that can be used on almost any application throughout a building. The sealing process also enriches the stone's hues, creating a deeper, more enhanced shade which is often preferred to its original style.
The stone's beautiful sandy texture is maintained with this classic honed finish. The tile is ground to a smooth surface, but not buffed or polished, this results in a matte effect which compliments the stone's fine grain.
A honed finish has superb traction, making it ideal for flooring as it provides sufficient slip resistance. It's a highly durable finish which cannot be dulled by overuse in the same way as a polished effect can. This makes it great for high traffic areas of the home such as hallways and kitchens.
The tile has a gauged back, creating the perfect uniform surface for ease of application. This makes it great for use inside the home, as well as out.
The bold red can be used to create a stunning accent wall in a bathroom or kitchen. Team it with natural materials such as wood and ethically sourced cotton for a design which is earthy and rugged.
Morning Glory sandstone can be used for numerous applications. It is extremely versatile and can even be used outside. Make the patio of your dreams alongside a low maintenance rockery for the feeling of sunshine all year round.
