Can you use Indian sandstone flooring inside your home?

Indian sandstone paving is the most popular stone flooring amongst UK homeowners, and for good reason. It’s beautiful, versatile, affordable, and a brilliant substitute for much more expensive stone flooring styles. We have a wide variety of shades available here at Bridge Street Stone, which makes it especially easy to find a style to suit all preferences. It looks absolutely stunning situated in the garden or drive, but have you ever considered bringing the beauty of stone inside you home? If the answer is no, here are three reasons why you should!

Indian sandstone paving is incredibly durable and multifunctional

Stone flooring is an excellent match for high-traffic areas in the home, such as hallways and kitchens. Because it's so robust, you can rest assured your investment will stand the test of time. Unlike a wood floor, which will need re-sanding and finishing every few years until it eventually needs replacing, stone flooring will last for decades if looked after correctly! Stone flooring is also a great option for those who suffer from allergies. The hardness of stone makes it difficult for allergens and dust to settle and collect on the surface.

Stone is also a brilliant conductor of heat; once it heats up, it stays warm. That means it can be a great addition to any home to get you through a cold winter - especially if you have underfloor heating. Similarly, it's brilliant at keeping the house cool during the summer months. It's a win-win situation!

Stone flooring looks beautiful and ages like a fine wine

No matter the colour or style of the Indian sandstone you choose, it will add boundless amounts of modern yet rustic charm to your interior space. Indian Sandstone is rich with natural beauty and incredibly versatile, allowing you to change your room decor as and when it suits you and still have a complementary floor. The natural hues of the Indian sandstone go with many interior styles and a wide variety of colour schemes, making the options endless.

Also, the longer you have your Indian sandstone flooring, the more beautiful it becomes, just like a fine wine! It'll instantly become a feature in any room, almost like a statement piece of furniture, infusing the space with an individual charm specific to your home. And since every slab is natural and unique, that means no two floors are the same. Indian sandstone can also seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor spaces, promoting greater cohesion between the home and garden. We supply riven and sawn sandstone in various beautiful colourings, including Kota BlackKandla GreyAutumn Brown, and Golden Leaf, all imported straight from India!

Stone flooring is easy to seal and clean

Sealing your Indian sandstone flooring is a great way to protect its natural beauty and ensure its longevity. Indian sandstone is porous, so it can quickly soak up any spillages, moisture or dirt on its surface if left unsealed, leading to lasting stains, marks and even deterioration if left untreated. That’s why it’s best to seal your Indian sandstone to ensure you get the most out of it. Also, sealing the stones will help the natural patterns and colours stand out, making the flooring even more stunning. The floor will need sealing every few years, and typically won’t take more than an hour or two to dry, so it’s not a large task.

And once it’s sealed, it’s easy to clean. When it comes to debris, crumbs or daily debris, they can be swept up by a soft, bristled brush. Any spillages need to be cleaned up relatively quickly and can be done so using a simple but effective mixture of dish soap, warm water and a soft-bristled brush or cloth - no unique products required! This makes it a perfect low-maintenance flooring option for kitchens and hallways!
