Best Types of Natural Stone for Your Home
Although natural stone may be costlier than other materials, its durability and longevity makes it beneficial in the long term.
Durable, fireproof and relatively maintenance free, stone structures that are well-built can endure just about any weather conditions. Here are some of the most desired types of natural stone:
Limestone: Highly resilient and with superior fire-resistant characteristics, limestone will maintain its structural integrity for many years.
Also thermally stable, limestone will reduce your heat and cooling needs, ensuring greater comfort for your family, and lower energy costs.
Marble: Commonly used indoors as flooring and kitchen countertops, marble is available in a wide array of colors and patterns, varying from brown to pink, purple and gray, and in mixed hues.
Marble is widely used in prestigious architecture and interior design.
Sandstone: This remarkable stone is usually known for its use in outdoor spaces, such as driveways or gardens.
Widely acclaimed for its natural durability, strength, and slip-resistant properties, sandstone can be comfortably placed in areas where water is used, such as lawns and pools.
It’s also ultra low-maintenance and can easily be cleaned with just plain water.
Granite: Low-maintenance granite is perfect for exteriors, including driveways and swimming pools.
In your kitchen, polished granite slabs will create colorful countertops, as granite is resistant to moisture, scratching and heat.
Quartzite: Highly durable with an elegant crystalline sparkle, quartzite is among the world’s hardest natural stones.
It has a similar look and durability to marble and can withstand extreme temperatures and scratching.
Due to it being resistant to heat, many chemicals and stains, it is low-maintenance, and therefore an excellent choice for bathroom countertops, islands, wall coverings and vanity tops, and should be just perfect for busy kitchens or families with small children.
