5 Ways to Create a Sophisticated Office Look with Stone

Commercial Stone

Some of the world’s most famous office buildings use stone to create a striking interior, including the Empire State building (once the world’s tallest building) and the Burj Kalifa (currently the world’s tallest building).

Stepping into the marble-clad lobby of the Empire State Building is as impressive today as it was when the tower was built in 1931. Why? Because marble lasts, so the designer’s original intentions are as fresh and vibrant as they were when the stone was first installed.

1. Match your Stone to your Architecture

From crisp modern minimalism to Regency town houses, different architectural styles suit different hues and finishes. Choosing a stone that’s in harmony with the wider design style of your building gives the whole a finished look, indicating that every detail has been thought through.

2. Create a Statement Floor

Busy lobbies need to be mostly empty space, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be striking in their own right. Whether you use a medley of stone tiles or a single sheet of granite, a statement floor creates an atmosphere that customers and employees respond to. Choose bright, fun shades for a vibrant start up or classic hues to suggest authority and longevity.

3. Add Luxury to Private Areas

Most commercial operations put on a good face out front. Don’t let the sparkling facade down by using low-grade materials in private areas that customers may visit. As an example, stone tiles provide an elegant solution for bathrooms and kitchens, yet are both affordable and practical. Show that your sophistication goes through to your core with these behind-the-scenes touches. Employee morale may improve too, thanks to an improved atmosphere.

4. Integrate your Company Logo or Name into the Design

Show that your company is here to stay by laying the foundations for the future in stone. A tasteful mosaic, tile or cut stone design is a great way to take ownership of a building in a permanent way. Many natural stones are available in a wide range of colours, while others can be dyed to pick up the shades of your logo or other commercial symbol.

5. Dress to Impress

Polished marble has long been the sole preserve of the rich and powerful. Stone retains an image of history, awe and power thanks to a long association with monuments, cathedrals and palaces. Draw on this history to create an air of solemnity, to aid board room decision making, or impress clients and employees with the grandeur of ceremonial spaces.

6. Go Against the Grain

Each company is unique. Rather than stamp out identikit offices, at Surrey Marble and Granite we create bespoke commercial spaces that reflect your company’s needs and priorities. We work directly with our clients, cutting stone and fabricating pieces in our local workshop then installing them directly. As a result, we’re able to offer a high-quality custom service at affordable prices.
