Our Alnwick Sandstone is a beautiful pale oatmeal tone with minimal variation. The semi-honed and sandblasted finish of the tiles means that subtle surface texture can be expected, making it well suited to many areas of the home, as well as external applications. The heavily distressed and tumbled edges add a charming aesthetic, giving the impression of a naturally weathered stone which has been laid for centuries.
The subtlety of texture found in sandstone tiles set them apart from the pitted surface of many travertine tiles, and the more clean-cut, smooth finish of certain limestones. Small grains and layering are visible in the surface of Sandstone, making it a uniquely tactile, naturally textured stone flooring option. Sandstone tiles are an excellent choice for kitchens and external patio areas.
