Decorating with Natural Stone Exposed Stone Walls
Creating a focal point by changing up one wall in a room or open space is a common but effective home decoration trick. Although bold colors, patterned wallpaper and large pieces of art are the norm when it comes to this method, taking the time to find out what natural stone or natural stone tiles options can do for a room is well worth it.
Many homeowners are familiar with incorporating natural stone into their landscaping, but bringing stone into your home brings the space a natural beauty and warmth, connecting it to nature while giving your home a timeless and classic look. A simple stone tiled entrance way, for example, makes for easy clean up in any weather and gives your guests a warm and natural welcome as soon as they come through the door.
Throughout the rest of the home, stone can play a part in making rooms shine. Tiling a wall with small stone tiles in alternating colors or textures can give a small room a focal point that distracts from its size. In a larger space, big river rocks, field rocks or even slate bricks can transform a wall into a work of art. Rough or rounded rocks will promote a feeling of being truly connected to the Earth while smooth panels or buffed tiles can be surprisingly modern and even make your space more elegant and sophisticated. Because stone offers so much versatility, choosing the right shades and styles means they can work in a cottage just as easily they do a high-end modern townhouse.

- The Benefits of a Stone Countertop in Your Home
When building or remodeling your home you want to consider all of the pros and cons of the type of countertops you put into your kitchen, bathroom, or any other part of your home.
In the kitchen, granite or marble countertops can be extended to go down the sides of cupboards to create a waterfall effect. For homes that have countertops made from laminate, wood or stainless steel, adding a granite, marble or quartz topped butcher’s block island can give a kitchen a makeover without needing to upgrade the rest of your surfaces.
For those who truly want to connect their home to nature, installing a stone wall just outside their home, on a patio or back porch, can be the ideal solution. A large stone wall fits perfectly with an outdoor entertainment space and water features can be added to trickle down the wall into stone basins, feed growing moss and lichens and create a beautiful, organic and ever changing piece of outdoor art.
Using natural stone or natural stone tiles as a way to join your home and your environment can be surprisingly versatile. A wall with exposed brick, for example, gives an industrial feel. That same wall covered in rounded river rock will have your guests trading stories about camping, kayaking and enjoying the natural world. Granite, marble or quartz, on the other hand, is the ultimate in urban and modern sophistication. With the variety and flexibility offered by natural stone it’s easy to see why so many people are turning to it to refresh their home and create a statement piece.
