If you want to create a seamless look use these slabs both inside and out.
The etching, which increases the non-slip properties of the stone, also gives it a more neutral colour.
When used inside we recommend waxing the stone to reduce the slight harshness which is necessary for outdoor use. This is a really robust, great value stone.
The etched finish is created by sand-blasting. An etched finish makes stone surfaces less slippery. It also softens the colour of the stone for a slightly more muted finish. This is particularly appropriate for hard stones that are used for exteriors and pool surrounds.
