Sandstone is among the most popular paving choices for homeowners and landscapers in the UK.
When sawn and honed, it is perfect for creating a sleek and contemporary look in any setting.
Here, we explore why the characteristics of sawn and honed sandstone paving make it such a desirable option for both indoor and outdoor projects.
What is sawn and honed sandstone paving?
Although natural sandstone paving is characterised by its highly textured surface, it can be transformed to have a smoother look and feel.
Sawn and honed sandstone paving goes through several processes to achieve its modern aesthetic.
Each slab is machine-cut with precision – to the nearest millimetre – on all six sides; a process which is referred to as being sawn.
The slab is then honed to polish and buff the surface, leaving a smooth matt finish that is ideal for any contemporary landscaping project.
Why choose sawn and honed sandstone paving?
Sawn and honed sandstone offers an entirely unique aesthetic appeal.
It is available in a wide variety of colours and contains beautiful and intricate patterns.
These delicate processes only enhance the distinct natural beauty of sandstone, creating paving that possesses a contemporary look that is difficult to find or replicate within other natural or man-made paving slabs.
The uniqueness of each slab also makes it much easier to remove and replace them individually if they are damaged.
With the varying tones and textures of every sandstone slab, you will not have to worry about each one matching.
The smooth finish and refined sawn edges enhance an already sleek look of sandstone paving.
Meanwhile straight, crisp lines facilitate close jointing which compliments the modern aesthetic, making it a preferred choice for landscaping projects or for those looking to create a luxurious outdoor space.
The hard-wearing nature of sawn and honed sandstone paving also makes it a particularly desirable choice for landscapers and homeowners seeking for a low-maintenance solution.
Sandstone is a worthy investment compared to other paving options; it is incredibly long-lasting and durable.
It is weather-resistant and, despite its smooth finish, doesn’t become slippery when wet.
