Desert Himalayan Sandstone provides warm, soft tones. People love it for its upmarket, sophisticated appearance. There is a moderate amount of colour variation from tile to tile with some tiles having grey veining. The surface is smooth due to the honing process. That said, it remains non-slip as it is still quite textured at a micro level.
Desert Himalayan Sandstone is hard but porous making it more susceptible to mould and marking. It is very cool underfoot compared to dark colours. There is minimal thickness variation from tile to tile. Seal with a penetrating, consolidating sealer to make cleaning easier and reduce the effect of salt attack. Do not use strong acid to clean.
