If you are planning to introduce a natural stone in your home, you can be assured of the timeless elegance offered by Beige Sandstone. Read on to explore its properties, applications, and varieties!
The Properties Of Beige Sandstone
Although Beige Sandstone is strong and durable it is more porous than natural stones like granite or slate. Its intrinsic qualities fairly resemble that of marble in terms of the water absorption capacity. But considering the toughness, the stone is hard.
That said, this quality assures that the natural stone will endure for at least a lifetime with proper care. It is important to choose the stone with the right finish (depending on the use). For example, a honed finish is best for interior flooring and polished finish is good for countertops.
If you are looking for an environmentally friendly option, sandstone is one of the best options to go with. As the material is quarried from the earth, it degrades over time (this takes time). It is unlike materials like vinyl that are composed of plastic.
Like many other natural stones, Beige Sandstone can be used in kitchen and bathroom countertops, wall cladding, facade, flooring, staircases, walkways, pillars, patios, etc. But its demand is more in shaping internal and external flooring. The warm colours from brown and tan to gold and red create aesthetics that mirror a beach or a desert. Considering its durability, homeowners prefer using the sandstone in high traffic areas.
The following are four types of Beige Sandstone, each with a unique look and feel.
