Creative ideas for stone off-cuts

From brightly coloured shelves to a crazy paved patio, stone off-cuts are affordable and make a great design feature. Marble and granite companies like ours typically have off-cuts of all sizes on hand, and we’re happy to help customers find creative uses for gorgeous pieces of stone that aren’t large enough to make a full worktop.

Small worktops

As quarry slabs are large, off-cuts can be sizeable too. If you want to create a smaller stone worktop, for example for a bathroom vanity, then off-cuts can be an affordable way to get very high quality beautiful stones.

Shelves

Creating coordinating shelves from the off-cuts created when your kitchen worktop was formed is a great way to use up leftover stone, add useful storage to your kitchen and create a complete look.

Multi-coloured floors

Stone floors don’t have to be dull, and one way to brighten them up is by using multiple stones. Off cuts can be used as accent colours or to create a mosaic effect. The smaller pieces are also a great way to provide a visual break, for example at a doorway, or to disguise the natural variation between two slabs by creating a band of a contrasting colour between them.

Brighten up your rockery

The smallest off-cuts can rarely be re-used and may be given away for free by granite companies. Brightly coloured and oddly shaped lumps of processed or natural stone are a great way to add a splash of colour and interest to a rockery or garden feature. Off-cuts typically won’t have been finished or polished so even the more unusual colours, such as pillarbox red or egg yolk yellow, will mellow and look almost natural in the garden.

Where do off-cuts come from?

Cutting out a granite kitchen worktop or a marble bathroom counter leaves waste stone. It’s like cutting out pieces of cloth to make a dress, or paper to wrap Christmas gifts: quarries provide stone slabs in standard sizes designed to be large enough to cover most uses. Granite companies fit the template for an individual piece to the slab and cut to match, creating a perfect worktop and a few odd shapes left over: off-cuts, made of the same high-quality stone.

Stone is the best choice, whether you’re looking at beautiful period fireplaces or modern minimalist designs. New fireplaces use stones like marble and granite for the same reasons our distant (and not so distant) ancestors did: stone is heat resistant; doesn’t catch fire; doesn’t weather or change colour due to contact with heat or fire; is easy to clean; and can withstand knocks and bumps from logs, coal buckets and other equipment. But with the wide range of stones available, from granite to quartz, which should you choose? Which part […]

Limestone is easy to care for making it a great choice for kitchen worktops, bathroom tiles and flooring indoors and out. Ideally, limestone should be professionally sealed. As well as making it easier to clean and care for, this ensures that no bacteria or dirt can get trapped in the surface and reduced the chance of scratches and stains.
