Uses of Sandstone

Sandstone is an incredible sedimentary rock which is soft enough to be carved and shaped easily, beautiful enough to be used as a decorative material and strong enough to withstand the changing weather.

It usually forms in places where there is water and it takes a long time for it to form. Its texture, appearance and even its properties depend on what it is composed of and where it was formed. Sandstone comes in wide variety of colors which include tan, yellow, blue, grey, creamy white etc.

In the current times, when everyone has an eye for beauty, this material is your hero. It has been used since the prehistoric times and continues to show its importance today.
Sandstone provides your home and furniture with a rustic look and keeps the house warm during the winter and cool during the summer. It is also very durable and strong so it makes it even more popular.

Where it can be used?

As a Decorative Material.

You can have statues made for your yard, build garden benches, tablewares, tombstones, line your gardens or pools, make flower beds, drink coasters, paperweights, key chains, glassware, clocks, decorate your driveways and even have slides for your kids made with it. You can make candle stands and jewellery boxes out of sandstone too.

Indoor uses

You can have your kitchen’s countertop made with it and your bathroom walls would look really good in it too. It can be used to make beautiful fireplaces and balconies, interior wall panels and bathroom furniture units

Outdoor uses

This includes the building of pet homes, roofs, bridges, mailboxes, patio tables, bird baths, porches, stepping stones, gates, docks, monuments and fountains etc. The fact that it is a very strong material makes it an excellent choice for pavers as well.

All of the above uses are just a glimpse of what you can build with sandstone. All we do here at Brisbane Rock Sales is get creative and think of a million more ways to use it and make it all look breathtaking. Call 07 3339 1546.

    What Our Customer Says

    From the time I rang Brisbane Rock Sales to get some names for quotes to do this sandstone wall to completion, I could not have been happier with the whole process. The price came in as a reasonable amount of money after I had received quotes to get the wooden retaining wall replaced, the stones came in a lot cheaper. We couldn’t be happier with the end product and we were very impressed with the professionalism shown. Thank you for making the process less stressful and creating such a pleasing result.
