Go green – beautiful green stones

Arena Stone

Many people assume that stone worktops need to be marble white, granite grey or shades of beige. Nothing could be further from the truth. As well as beautiful natural stones in all shades of the rainbow, processed stones like Arena Stone and Silestone have further expanded the range of colours available so you can have a stone bathroom or kitchen worktop in any colour you like. As Saint Patrick’s Day is around the corner, here are 4 of our favourite green stones.

Fresh as spring leaves

Bright and cheerful, Apple by Compac Technological Quartz is well named. With the crisp colour of fresh fruit or spring leaves, this stone really pushes the envelope, giving you an idea of just what is possible with processed stone. Made of over 93% natural stone, Compac Technological Quartz is non-porous and harder than most natural stones. It’s scratch, heat and water resistant so it’s easy to care for. As with most engineered stones, the colour is totally uniform, which makes matching pieces across larger kitchen worktops or feature walls simple.

All natural hues

When certain minerals are present, natural stones like marble and granite can take on unusual hues too. Green marble is often tinted by the presence of serpentine or formed from stone with magnesium or silica. As the process takes place naturally over thousands of years, the shade and patterning cannot be controlled. As a result, different colours of marble typically come from quarries in different parts of the world. Ireland and Sweden have been known historically for their green marble, but today better transport links let us import marble from around the world at an affordable price.

Beautiful depth of colour

Mimicking the subtle shades of natural stone, green Arena Stone is an ideal choice if you’re looking for a more delicate touch of colour. With a rich texture, this deep green is a great way to add a hint of colour to a kitchen or bathroom. The larger quartz crystals used in this stone give it a distinctive texture and make it ideal for older properties and more traditional interior design motifs. It’s a popular choice for stone flooring as the texture is reminiscent of marble and granite found in palaces and temples but at a fraction of the price.

Bright as a leprechaun’s britches

Whether you’re celebrating your Irish heritage or simply love having bright colours in your home, green Silestone is a great choice. Made from quartz, one of the toughest materials found in nature, Silestone uses dyes to create their bold and bright colours. The stone is non-porous, scratch resistant and easy to clean, making it an ideal choice for kitchen worktops, bathrooms and floors. It’s a popular choice in modern homes with a bright, minimalist design as the stone itself is a stunning and eye-catching feature without the need for additional ornamentation.

Creating a space that’s as effective when you’re rushing to get ready for work as when you’re relaxing at the end of the day isn’t easy, but it’s well worth the effort. The master bathroom is a heavily used but often ignored part of the home. With a little effort, you can transform a functional closet-like space into a luxurious retreat. Here are our tips to get you started.

Kitchen worktops of the stone kind can vary widely in the materials used, although their solidity and strength is beyond question. The costs of a completed work surface, however, may be dictated by the materials used. The durability of the material may not necessarily reflect its strength: Some more costly materials may simply look better or have a more stylish appeal. They may carry a greater cachet than engineered stone or manmade alternatives.
