Natural Stone Adds Beauty Inside and Outside Your HomeAuthor:Lindsey Shook
As natural stone becomes more in demand for beautiful kitchen and bath applications, we sometimes forget that stone is an excellent and dramatic choice for use outside the home as well. Imagine what an impression your guests will form when they see an all-natural stone entry built with materials from IRG – from a travertine walkway to stone pavers through mossy lawn areas, right up to the magnificent marble clad threshold.
You can find a natural stone choice for almost any color your exterior might be, whether brick, wood, siding or natural stone itself. Concrete patios and pool decks come to life when natural stone is used as an embellishment; and when walkways, porches and decks connecting your home to other areas have natural stone surfaces.
Stone, combined with glass tiles, makes for a spectacular and splashy outdoor pool design. Have a green thumb? Stone can be harmoniously used in gardens and flower beds. Like being cozy? Soapstone is today’s choice for fire pit surrounds. Do you love pizza (like we even have to ask)? Indulge in an outdoor pizza oven crafted from natural stone.
When it’s more outdoor cooking you want, your work center surfacing choices are as functional as they are attractive. This popular home upgrade to outdoor living can be as lavish as a full-on operational kitchen, where natural stone is the obvious choice for the exterior of base structures as well as the countertops due to its ability to withstand the elements and provide years of beauty and service. Your outdoor kitchen will be durable, weather resistant, easy to clean, and beautiful!
