Tips for Sandstone Flooring

Sandstone floor tiles can transform a plain looking bathroom or kitchen into a rustically modern living space. Sandstone forms from quartz, iron oxide, silica and grains of rock.

Although sandstone floor tiles don’t come cheap, interiors with sandstone floor tiles are so sleek and great-looking they are well worth the money. All natural, sandstone floor tiles have wild variations in terms of texture, color and hue. They’re very interesting to play with in terms of design.

Sandstone floor tiles not only look good, they are also extremely resilient. They can endure nature’s beating without looking too worn out. Sandstone floor tiles can be used for living areas, hallways, kitchens and baths. They are even used for exterior wall cladding.

Another great thing about sandstone flooring is that they are slip-resistant keeping family members and houseguests safer from wet-floor accidents.

For those who wish to save a lot of time for upkeep, sandstone flooring is a good choice because they require very little maintenance. Unlike carpets that collect dust, they are more comfortable for people with allergies.

Are you planning on installing sandstone slabs on your floor? Here on some tips to help you:

1. Consider your lifestyle before anything else. Which rooms have the most traffic? Do your children run around the house with dirty shoes?

Sandstone floor tiles are rated based on durability on a scale of one to five. Five-rated sandstone slabs are sturdier and more expensive but in very busy areas, you should invest in stronger materials.

Consider too how water-resistant you need your sandstone flooring to be. Sandstone floor tiles are water resistant but for areas like the poolside you may need a special type of sealant.

2. Consider weather conditions. It would be good to talk to a professional about how fit for the purpose your choice of flooring material is. Exposure to sunlight can fade out the color of sandstone floor tiles faster. Changes in temperature also matter a lot.

3. Be smart at buying materials for your Sandstone Flooring. You can do this only if you carefully plan out the use of your sandstone slabs. How many sandstone floor tiles do you need for your floor area?

If possible, buy in bulk all the sandstone floor tiles you need plus a couple of extra. This gives you leverage to bargain for a low price. You won’t run out of materials in the middle of your home improvement project too.

4. Seek the help of a professional for the design and installation of your Sandstone Flooring Tiles. Mixing and matching sandstone slabs of different hues can be interesting but without a professional, you might end up with something you don’t like. If you don’t want to waste money redoing installations, hire a pro.
