Colorado Home Stone Trends

June 27, 2023

If you’re planning to update your home, stone provides a versatile solution that can elevate the look and feel of a wide range of rooms in your house without busting your budget. While stone countertops are by far the most popular and common application for stone in the home, there are a variety of other ways you can use this material to create innovative interior designs that are truly stunning.

The following uses of stone have been trending recently. Our team of expert surface specialists at the Stone Collection can discuss these ideas with you in person to help you determine the best uses of stone for your next home redesign project.

Stone Showers

If you’re renovating your bathroom and looking for a more upscale appearance, consider a stone shower instead of using tile. Stone showers have experienced a dramatic surge in popularity in recent years, and for good reason. They provide a touch of luxury and an exotic feel to go along with their timeless beauty and unmatched durability.

There are virtually limitless stone shower options at your disposal. From classic marbles like Carrara and Calacatta to exotic granites and travertines, each stone boasts unique textures, patterns and colors, ensuring your shower will truly be one of a kind.

Not only do stone showers exude elegance, but they are also extremely functional. Stone is naturally resistant to water and staining, making it an ideal choice for wet environments. Minimal maintenance is necessary, and you’ll have a highly durable shower that will look great for years to come. A stone shower will allow you to transform your bathing routine into a lavish, spa-like experience.

Stone Backsplashes

Stone backsplashes provide an excellent complement to your stone kitchen countertops, allowing you to infuse additional elegance and charm that will make preparing meals even more enjoyable for culinary aficionados.

As with stone showers, the possibilities are truly endless when installing stone backsplashes in your kitchen. From the sleek, modern aesthetics of quartzite to the rustic, earthy allure of a textured slate, each type of stone slab adds its own distinct character to your kitchen. Stone backsplashes not only complement your countertops, but they can also highlight other elements of your kitchen such as your cabinets, providing a truly stunning appearance.

Stone backsplashes offer a variety of functional benefits in addition to their dazzling beauty. Many stones are highly resistant to heat, moisture and stains, providing a durable solution that will be easy to maintain. With a stone backsplash, you can enjoy peace of mind that your kitchen renovation will look great for years to come.

Bookmatched Stone
