sandstone vs. ceramic


I am remodeling my bathroom.
I think about using sandstone corner shelves instead of ceramic corner shelves in my bathroom. They are a little more expensive, but weight less and look better than ceramic corner shelves.
I am not familiar with sandstone and donít now how durable it is.
I would greatly appreciate any opinion about using sandstone in a bathroom.

sandstone vs. ceramic


Sandstone is the softest,most absorbent stone commonly available.

Nice looking,but a poor choice in a wet area with soap and shampoo getting dribbled on it regularly.

A tip on choosing any natural stone: Put a few wet paper towels into a baggy and bring them with you when you shop.
Lay the towel on the stone that you like and see if the stone absorbs any water.--M--

Mike,

Thanks a lot.
I also read some complains from people who tried to use sandstone tiles.
I’ve made my decision in favor of ceramic corner shelves.
