Ideas for exterior cladding with polygonal flagstone
Polygonal flagstone is an excellent choice for cladding walkways, courtyards or terraces. Available in many creative shapes, this polygonal flagstone has a particular cut out, also called “crazy paving”. You can choose from a broad range of colors, random surface size and relatively constant thickness (approx. 5 cm). Polygonal flagstone is sustainable and durable (against fire, freeze and erosion) and it can also be used for cladding fences or facades of buildings, for an efficient look of the exterior.
Choose polygonal flagstone with darker shades if you want a living space with active look. Here are some recommendations for your decoration project.
Red Vidin Polygonal Sandstone has fresh and vivid color, in lovely contrast with garden plants or the freshly mowed lawn. It is better accentuated when other design elements (uncladded vertical areas) are for example, white, because red sandstone creates a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

We recommend choosing the same stone for your exterior decoration project, perhaps with different finishes. Polygonal flagstone has a strong visual impact and if you use two or three different stones it only clutters the design. Exterior decoration projects have similar rules and risks, so avoid cluttering the space with excessive textures, material and decorative objects, if you want to enjoy a relaxing space. A good example is the image below (project by one of PIATRAONLINE customers) with same material used for cladding courtyard, home base of building and adjacent walkway.
