As stone in all forms is such a dense hard-wearing material, the possibilities of its uses are endless. Granite, marble, limestone and quartz can be used in many different ways around the home. This month, we will be looking at the uses most popular other than kitchen worktops.
Using stone on bathroom sink units, toilet backs and window cills creates a luxury feel in the bathroom. A wide array of colours to choose from can upgrade a current colour scheme or allow for a new one to be created. Due to its density, stones such as granite, marble and quartz are non-porous to common bathroom items such as soaps and soft cleaners.
Hearths and Fire surrounds
Granite is an obvious choice for hearths and fire surrounds. As granite is an igneous rock it is not affected by large amounts of heat. This resistance to heat makes it the perfect choice for heaths to house a log burning and other high heat fires.
Polished limestone, granites and marbles can be engraved with lettering in any font, style or sizes. Tooled machinery allows these engravings to be done to the highest standard, they are then hand finished by a team of skilled stone masons, hand painted when required and inspected for quality.
Cladding in bathrooms allow for stylish statements in pattern and colour. Bookmatched slabs can be use to increase size of cladding while making a feature of the join between slabs. Bath panels can be replaced with stone to blend with vanities or cills.
Dining tables, coffee tables and side tables can be given a new lease of life when adding a stone top. Its durability can withstand domestic uses. Its stain resistance makes messy meal times a breeze to clean, impressive patterns are always a conversation starter and all tops are expected to last a lifetime!
