Incorporating Natural Stone Into Your Home Décor

Including natural stone or natural stone tiles in your interior décor is a great way to bring a bit of Mother Nature into your home. There are a number of different ways you can incorporate stone inside your home and here we’ll take a look at five interesting ways you can add a bit of the great outdoors to your cozy abode.

Gorgeous Shower

Tiling the shower from top to bottom, including the floor with natural stone tiles creates an inviting feeling thanks to its inherent beauty and natural warmth. You obviously want to make sure it’s sealed properly to avoid water issues, and you can use a smooth, flat tile or a textured stone can offer a bit of traction for safety with wet feet.

Countertops

Of course granite has been a popular feature in many homes for quite a while now but some homeowners are taking things a step farther and including marble or quartz countertops as well as extending their current granite to run down the side of free standing countertop islands, creating a waterfall effect. A stone backsplash in a complimentary style completes the look.

Stunning Sink

Sink designs have evolved over the years to include free standing basins in bathrooms which have become incredibly popular in a variety of homes. Porcelain and steel remain more common choices but many people are opting for basins made entirely out of natural stone. This simple addition makes a huge impact in a kitchen, and especially a bathroom where it is more likely to act as a focal point as well as a piece of functioning art.

Revamped Entryway

Using stone tiles in the entryway can help create a homey and earthy feel for visitors and also helps with general clean up. Sweeping and mopping these stone tiles is easier than running a vacuum and dealing with stains in a carpeted entryway. The look is clean, simple and timeless and doesn’t pose the same staining issues as traditional vinyl or linoleum.

One Wall Wow

Using natural stone or natural stone tiles to remodel a fireplace is a common practice, but how about using it to create an amazing wall in an otherwise small of neutral colored room? Use textured stone tiles in a small space to add life to the decor or use more uniform tiles in order to simply create an eye catching wall in an open living area. This is also a great approach for bedrooms where a bed doesn’t have a headboard. Create a stone veneer column that extends along the width of your bed all the way to the ceiling and you’ll never notice a missing headboard again.
