If you’re looking for a dark, intense mood for your area of application, allow us to introduce you to two of our most favorite black stones: The Sagar Black Sandstone and the Kadappa Black Limestone.
Why you should consider using Natural Stones?
We highly recommend Natural Stones for both Indoor and Outdoor Settings because of their exceptional strength, high durability, and great resistance against harsh conditions. Not just that, Natural Stones come in a vast diversity of colors, textures, and patterns, so you have a wide variety to choose from. Plus, they can be easily carved into various shapes and sizes. Generally, Nature Stones are highly durable. They are not just vastly considered as flooring materials because of their toughness, but also for countertops, as they prevent stains, scratches, and heat from ruining their surface.
Sagar Black Sandstone or Kadappa Black Limestone? Let’s sort that out.
Sagar Black Sandstone
Unlike all other Sandstones, Sagar Black Sandstone comes in shades of charcoal greys and blacks and is used extensively for outdoor purposes, like paving and landscaping. This stone is a great value for money for the quality it comes in. It is mostly used for outdoor purposes which guarantees its strength and durability. The color palette helps to give the chosen area a grander, luxurious look and massively compliments other colors in the surroundings, especially in outdoor settings.
Kadappa Black Limestone
Kadappa Black Stone is a type of Limestone that comes in the shade of absolute black. It is mainly sourced from the ‘Kadapa’ city of South-Central Andhra Pradesh. It is best suited for flooring and pavements as it is oil-resistant and Non-slippery. Kadappa Black Limestone is highly durable and requires little maintenance to last a lifetime. It can be used for both indoor and outdoor settings, giving the area of application a very compact and intense look. Traditional or modern? It sets any mood you’d prefer.
But which stone is more durable?
Both stones are widely recognized and popular for being extremely durable and are able to combat harsh weather conditions in outdoor settings. When considering the texture and the surface, Sandstone is generally softer than Limestone. Sagar Black Sandstone requires a little more maintenance than the Kadappa Black Limestone because of its lighter shades that may require more cleaning and polishing now and then.
Our Final Verdict
When looking for a stone to best suit your outdoor settings, like patios, driveways, or terrace gardens, Sagar Black Sandstone may be the best option for you to consider because it comes in a vast diversity of colors, textures, and patterns and is highly durable against harsh weather conditions. Limestone on the other hand is more of an indoor stone. It requires little maintenance and is not easily prone to scratching or denting, increasing its longevity for indoor settings.
