Modern interior design goes green

An eco-friendly home can provide a healthier environment for your family, and even save you a few pennies along the way! At Surrey Marble and Granite, we work with natural stone every day, creating sumptuous floors, stylish bathrooms and stunning worktops for homes and businesses across the UK. Here are a few of the green tips we’ve picked up from the designers we work with.

Choose the right lighting for your space

Light can dramatically alter a space – think of the difference between candlelight and hospital-bright neon, for example. The colour, intensity and direction of the bulbs you choose can make your space bright and cheery, intimate and cosy or frustratingly gloomy. Choosing the right lighting will let you use less artificial light. Making the most of natural daylight can boost your circadian rhythms while also saving money, so it’s well worth planning your rooms around the light you have.

Use natural materials

Natural materials are already part of the planet’s ecosystems and can be easily returned to nature once their useful life in your home is complete. Natural materials, such as wooden cabinets and marble worktops, are very much on-trend at the moment so you don’t need to compromise your personal style to create an eco-friendly home.

Look for hidden savings

From cavity wall insulation to stopping draughts around external doors, there are dozens of ways to save energy which won’t have an impact on the interior design you’re creating. Each energy efficiency not only saves the planet but also reduces your energy bills. In some cases, you may be able to get work done for free or with a grant thanks to national incentive programs.

Consider local materials

Online shopping lets us easily order goods from anywhere in the world. For a unique, personal touch, consider adding local or regional materials to your home design. This not only saves the energy used to ship the products, but can also provide a boost to the local economy and help artisans retain traditional skills. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we offer a wide range of stones to suit every need, including marble worktops sourced from within Europe.

Look for reclaimed or recycled materials

A significant proportion of the environmental impact of a home renovation project is down to the use of new materials. By using reclaimed or recycled materials, you can save the energy and resources needed to make a new item, as well as giving your home a unique touch. Even reusing the same cabinet shells can dramatically reduce the cost of a new kitchen. At Surrey Marble and Granite we work with all kinds of stone, and have in the past been asked to reshape or refashion existing marble worktops to give them a new life. For example, to fit them in a new kitchen or to shape offcuts to make stunning shelves, table tops and other items.

ways to use marble in your home

Marble is a metamorphic rock which begins life as limestone. Over time it transforms due to the intense heat and pressures it’s under and recrystallises to make the marble which we’re all familiar with. Marble is available in a variety of unique colours and often comes with flecks or veins which change the look of the stone. This material can be seen imitated everywhere from pens to coffee mugs and remains highly sought after. One common misconception about marble is that it’s expensive. You’d be surprised how affordable a well-places […]

  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.
