5 advantages of Indian sandstone paving

1. It’s incredibly durable

Indian sandstone paving is extremely sturdy. The robust natural stone composition is very long-lasting, as long as it’s properly cared for. It can handle high levels of foot-traffic and it's less likely to crack when compared with other stone floorings on the market. What’s more, it’s also capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions like frost and heavy rain, all the while adding value to your property over time.

2. It comes in a wide range of colours and finishes

Indian sandstone is also available in a wide range of colours and finishes. These stones come in solid and multi-toned variations that deepen over time, further adding to their overall charm and appeal. From Kandla Grey to Golden Leaf and Autumn Brown, this paving has a hue to suit everyone. Indian sandstone variants are often named after the area in which they’ve been mined, and they comes in multiple finishes to suit any look - from sophisticated and understated to charmingly rustic. This attractive paving option is striking and colourful and will elevate the look of your home or garden – no matter how big or small.

3. It can easily be made into a variety of patterns

No two gardens are the same, and we understand that better than anyone here at Bridge Street Stone. That’s why we offer a wide range of Indian Sandstone paving in a variety of colours, finishes and patterns, so you can exercise your creative freedom. This stone allows you to get adventurous with design and patterns. It’s a great choice for those who are looking to add an extra layer of visual interest to their space, making it truly unique and curated. Whether it’s for a winding path, patio or simply your garden, you can add a personal stamp to your home with this versatile paving.

4. It’s easy to maintain

While incredibly durable, even the strongest stone needs a little TLC every now and then. If left uncleaned, and unsealed Indian sandstone is susceptible to staining and dirt build up - which can affect the beautiful colour of your stones. Thankfully, maintaining this paving is nice and easy. A quick (but gentle) blast with a power washer will clear any grime and debris in no time! If you don’t have one handy, a good old fashioned wipe-down with soapy water will clear your paving just fine. We’d always highly recommend sealing your Indian sandstone to help make it more stain resistant and easier to clean.

5. It’s cost effective

When compared with other types of stone flooring, Indian Sandstone is notably more affordable. Not only that, in addition to the brilliant price, it offers all the visual interest, elegance and versatility of other, more expensive stone flooring options. So even if you have a budget to adhere to, you can still have the beautiful stone flooring you desire without compromise. And with good care and regular upkeep, this paving will last you many years - making the investment that much smarter!
