People have been using stone to decorate their homes for thousands of years. Thanks to modern technologies, the range of colours and patterns available are wider than ever, and luxurious stones like marble have become much more affordable, bringing granite worktops or marble bathroom tiles within the reach of most home owners.
Look and feel
When you’re working on your own home, your taste and preferences are key to creating a pleasant and relaxing environment. We strongly recommend visiting the Surrey Marble and Granite show room where you can compare samples of different stones and finishes, seeing the colour and pattern options in person and really getting a feel for the options. Marble worktops, for example, are a popular way to highlight the natural beauty of the stone but if you prefer bright colours or a more modern look in your kitchen or bathroom, then you should consider granite worktops or other, newly developed, stone types.
Stone worktops in the kitchen
Marble or granite worktops are a classic choice in the kitchen, but they’re no longer the only option. While all stone worktops are naturally heat and water resistant, modern options like Quarella and Caesarstone have advantages that natural stone cannot match. Quarella worktops, for example, are non-porous meaning that they’re not only easy to clean but are hygienic, too, as there are no hiding places for bacteria. Caesarstone worktops are available in over 70 colours, giving you a wide range of options and allowing you to update your kitchen without committing to a complete remodel.
Stone in the bathroom
Water, heat and stain resistant, stone is a great choice for the damp, warm atmosphere of a bathroom. At Surrey Marble and Granite we offer a versatile collection of stones and stone products, allowing you to choose the right combination for your bathroom, whether that’s stone tiles for both walls and floor or simple a stone worktop to act as a focal point. As well as being practical, stone can add a touch of classic elegance – picture the marble floors of period houses – or an ultra-modern chic. The trick is to choose the right stone for your style, whether that’s a classic cream marble tile or a rugged dark granite worktop.
Extremely durable, stone floors can outlast the buildings they stand in. Water and stain resistant, stone floors are easy to clean and don’t attract or retain odours in the way that a carpet would. Natural stone floors, such as marble, granite or limestone, provide a combination of natural, neutral shades and rich textures only found in the most expensive carpets. Easy to care for and maintain, stone floors are an excellent investment in your home, providing a durable, attractive floor which will last down the years and decades to come. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we understand that changing the flooring in your home can seem daunting. That’s why our experts are on hand to answer any of your questions or queries – simply contact us today, and we’ll put your qualms to rest.
