What Are Some Advantages of Faux Stone Floors Versus Natural Stone Flooring?Actual sandstone flooring delivers beautiful, natural color patterns that run through the material, similar to what is found on a beach or in a desert setting. However, when making faux sandstone, it is relatively easy for manufacturers to sample the designs of actual stone, creating a color pattern that closely matches the real thing.
Real sandstone is not perfect for every flooring situation. If selecting vinyl surfaces, for example, they will not absorb water or show scratches, as often is the case with porous natural stone floors.
Faux sandstone flooring tiles often use an interlock design on the edges that simplifies installation versus actual stone tiles. While natural stone often involves hiring a professional to do the installation, interlocked tiles are ideal for those seeking to save money with a DIY install.
What Are Some Interlocking Tiles That Look Like Sandstone Flooring?Tiles with hidden interlocking systems are easy to install, as they often use tabs on two sides of the tile and slots on the other two sides. Just line up the tabs with the slots on adjacent tiles and pop them together with a foot or hand.
Because the interlocking system sits on the underside of the tile, installers will only see straight, finished edges on the tiles upon completion. This yields a professional looking installation without the expense of hiring a pro.
The vinyl layer sits atop a plastic layer, providing the perfect match of durability and stylish looks. With its faux stone design, its style is appropriate for installation in almost any room of the home or at a business. Color options include:
- White marble
- Cambrian black
- Imperial gold
- Field stone
- New England
- Atlantic slate
- Pacific slate
- Sedona slate
These PVC plastic tiles are extremely durable. The textured appearance in the surface of these designer tiles will not wear away, even when exposed to regular foot traffic. Some of the colors available include:
- Antique brown
- Piazza clay
- Forest green
- Light gray
- Terra cotta
