Flagstone is another popular veneer option for a variety of projects, and is a sedimentary rock type that is split into layers along bedding planes. Generally a form of sandstone, flagstone is composed of feldspar and quartz, and typically comes in shades of red, blue, and buff, although sometimes more exotic colors exist– giving this material a great deal of character.
Around the thirteenth century, ceilings, walls, and floors within European architecture began to take on more ornate forms, and the Anglo-Saxons in particular were known for their use of flagstones as flooring materials inside castles and various other structures. Now a widely-used masonry material, flagstone makes a great choice for siding, interior walls, and more. Peruse our flagstone swatches below, and dream of the endless beautiful possibilities for this stone veneer.
