For interior use, both light and dark shades can be used, as the stone will acquire a darker patina with age, while for exterior use, it’s best to go for lighter tones as the effect of the sun and the elements lighten the stone’s colour with age.

Textured finishes are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they also offer a highly non-slip characteristic. So, for floors that are to be walked on mainly in bare feet, go for lightly textured finishes, such as Blue Flamed or EnoSkin®. The more coarsely textured finishes, such as Chiselled, Charred, Sclyped, Old Cut, Pick-Dressed or Dimpled, offer outstanding decorative effects for wall applications. Also highly anti-slip, they ensure the necessary grip in areas where one is likely to wear shoes, with a grip that’s perfect for areas where security is important.

For inside use, choose up to 1,5 or 2cm thick tiling. Outdoors, on patios etc. a 3cm thickness is sufficient, while car ways and car parking areas will need tilings that are 5cm thick.

You can use bonding glue for setting your blue stone paving. Use a similar colour glue to the stone for a subtle result, or force the contrast with synthetic joints, or coloured mortar.
