Are you are considering building or updating your home but you’re not quite sure where different kinds of stone would work best? Here are some suggestions from Marble Expo for usage of different types of stone within your home:

 

  • Due to its beauty combined with durability, granite has become one of the most popular choices for kitchen countertops and islands. This stone is found deep below the earth’s surface. Each piece has individual and distinctive veining. What this means is that every slab of granite will be unique. You will never see your exact same granite in anyone else’s home. When you are investing in home improvements or building a brand new home it is these personal touches that will make your house feel like your own. The materials you choose to go into your home bring warmth and character that bring it to life.

 

  • Another unique stone you might consider for your home is Travertine. This is a type of Limestone which is especially popular for outdoor construction. Consider travertine for an outdoor patio or garden area as it lends an elegant yet earthy feel to a space. This calcium-based stone contains varied amounts of deposits, which will again create a distinctive character to the look of your home.

 

  • Marble has been a mainstay in many bathrooms and vanity areas as it is both distinctive and quite beautiful. For the kitchen, it can be a good option for countertops but is seeing some popularity as an option for custom kitchen islands. This is due to the fact that it tends to be cool, making it an excellent choice for bakers and other temperature-sensitive work.

 

  • If you really want to make a bold statement consider using precious stone as a kitchen or bathroom back splash. These come in a variety of colors and designs to create a one-of-a-kind statement to accent any room. Precious stone is an excellent choice when you want something timeless, sophisticated, and absolutely stunning.
