Four unusual ways to use stone around the home

Four-unusual-ways-to-use-stone-around-the-home

Stand out from the crowd by creating an unusual design feature that makes the most of your home. From period stained glass to an ultra-modern living wall, there are loads of brilliant ideas to help you stamp your personality on a property that, from the outside, might look like every other house on the street.

As a premier stoneworking company as well as a marble and granite supplier to trade and commercial buyers, we’re a little biased – we think that the ideal inspirational feature is made of stone. Here are a few of our favourite mad-but-brilliant ideas.

#1 A stone staircase – in any colour or all of them

While stone staircases can look utterly classic (what else would a princess walk down to enter a ball?) the bright colours of modern processed stone have transformed the colour palette available so you can go for anything from a subtle but unusual purple or green to a poster-paint bright rainbow. Particularly good in open plan spaces, a stone staircase can transform something utilitarian into a work of art.

#2 Your own bar

Being the mixologist at your own bar is a popular dream, and what better place to practise bottle spinning than your own home? A piece of statement stone, such as black galaxy granite, makes your bar surface stand out without creating a country pub atmosphere. Stone is also very practical, as it doesn’t stain or absorb liquid and is easy to wipe clean. Good to know in case one of those bottles goes off track!

#3 A bathroom mosaic

From subtle coordinating stone tiles to a full-on Greek-inspired picture of Poseidon, god of the sea, creating a statement wall is easy. Using stone tiles on a bathroom wall not only looks great, it also protects the plaster, wood frame and electrics from water damage and damp. In small bathrooms, a tiled wall can draw the eye and create the illusion of space, while also creating a wetroom effect that saves you from needing shower screens and other clutter.

#4 Quirky chimney breast covers

Once again, it’s not what you do but how you do it. Stone is an eminently sensible material for anything near a fire or fireplace, as it doesn’t burn. While rough hewn stone tiles have a very traditional, cottage feel, dramatic, sleek marble tiles can give a very modern look. As the fireplace is often the visual focus of a room, it’s a good idea to make it stand out for the right reasons. Creating an appealing yet subtle tiled fireplace surround or a totally out-there statement chimney breast are two ways to draw the eye to your home’s features – and away from the black screen lurking in a corner. Even when it’s switched off, a TV screen draws the eye so give your guests something else to look at.

What do your customers see when they walk through your doors? For many Surrey businesses, the answer is a drab and prosaic reception area, which doesn’t properly represent the company behind it. As the reception and public meeting areas are often the only part of your business that a client will see, you’re doing your company a disservice if you neglect them. As a comparison, it would be like turning up to a meeting with a great presentation, a smart suit jacket and sweat pants: the last detail undermines the […]
