Playing with contrasts
Renowned for its neutral appearance, bluestone comes in various shades of blue-grey that match any type of garden. Hence, many landscape architects and designers opt create a fun effect by playing with contrasting bluestone tiles. Next to colour blocking, they also experiment with different tile sizes and types of texture to create unique mosaics.
A bluestone mosaic
When designing and laying the pattern for your bluestone mosaic, don’t hesitate to throw other natural materials into the mix. Some of the most daring mosaics consist of pieces of bluestone and wood left over from furniture, corten steel, glass and so on.
Make your interior become one with the patio outside by using the same bluestone tiles but in a lighter colour or with a slightly different texture. Boring? We beg to differ! Because bluestone is a natural stone, every piece is unique and has its own natural nuances. That makes each of your tiles a marvel to look at, even if they all come from the same batch.
Do you like to paint your interior a different colour from time to time? Or to try out other colourful outdoor furniture? Don’t worry about changing the floor tiles! You will notice that your bluestone stone matches, and even enhances, any colour you pick. Bluestone tiles always look stunning and never overpowering.
Bluestone is easy to maintain
Bluestone is a natural material that becomes even lovelier as time passes, provided you maintain it without using anti-limescale products. Indoors, rinsing bluestone with lukewarm water, possibly diluted with a small amount of natural soap, suffices to keep it clean and looking neat. Bluestone that is used outdoors is generally kept clean by rains and the occasional storm.
