Continue reading, below, to find our answers to customers’ most commonly asked questions about Indian sandstone.


What Indian sandstone colours are available?

Indian stone pavers are famous for their stunning natural variations in colour and shades, producing lighter pigments, such as cream and beige, as well as darker variations, like brown and black.


For a traditional, warming look that pairs well with both light and dark tones, we’d recommend our Bradstone Smooth Natural Sandstone Paving in Rainbow. Alternatively, for a more contemporary garden that prioritises monochronic modernism, opt for our Bradstone Riverwashed Natural Limestone Paving in Steel Grey.

Sitting somewhere between a mid-range and premium paver, Indian sandstone paving slabs are on the upper end of the pricing scale – but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a good bargain!


We regularly put Indian stone pavers up for sale on our special offers page, helping you install a stunning patio on a tighter budget. Alternatively, if our Indian sandstone collection does not fit in your price range, we have an incredible range of cheaper alternatives, including concrete blocks and our value pavers.
