Current natural stone trends14-Feb-2019
Each year welcomes new trends in all areas of our lives. Home décor and design is certainly no exception. While natural stone has been popular for decades, the way this stone is used, can vary from year to year. Here are some trends to look out for this year.
Stone might have been used for work surfaces and flooring in the past, it is becoming increasingly popular as a form of wall décor. Stone is an excellent addition to your bathroom and it will turn an ordinary part of your home into a truly luxurious space.
Stone fixtures are often used in kitchens, bathrooms, and various communal areas. You can, however, add some extra class to your bedroom by installing a stone accent wall.
Black and white
This colour combination has proven popular and fashionable for many years. It truly is timeless. While some may like to install white stone worktops along with black cabinets and other black features in the room, others prefer black worktops with more white elements in the room. Another option is to install stone worktops that include both black and white.
Highly humid areas
Stone is not only visually appealing, but it is also practical in rooms where humidity levels are high. At first, homeowners used stone to line the walls of their shower. Today, however, the use of stone has extended to all four walls of the bathroom. Now, when you have a shower and there's plenty of steam in the air, you don't have to worry about the water penetrating your walls.
No matter the trend you choose to follow this year, one thing will never change – the importance and value of quality. When installing natural stone in your home, make sure that you never settle for anything less than the best. This is an investment after all.
