I don’t think there’s anything that more epitomizes elegance than natural stone. As captivating as it is versatile, natural stone is an excellent way to elevate your home.
Whether you’re installing new countertops, tiling your floor, refurbishing your fireplace, or purchasing a lovely piece of furniture, it is a worthwhile investment that adds value to your space.
But owning natural stone doesn’t end at installation. It is a responsibility that takes a bit of know-how to maintain and preserve.
Improper care of the stone in your home can leave you frustrated and disappointed by the ease with which it seems your stone can mar and wear down over time.
So for the next several weeks, we are going to be publishing a series of posts entitled “The Stone in your Home”, in which we go through your home, room by room, and examine the best stone options available for you in that room, as well as everything you need to know to keep whatever you choose looking as pristine as the day it is first installed.
We will talk about excellent resources from which to source your stone, the stone’s cost-effectiveness, how well certain types of stones endure certain environments, as well as aesthetic considerations such as color, texture, and integrity over time.
Our hope is that, by the end of this series, you’ll feel more confident in your investment and better equipped to care for the stone you bring into your home.
Taking care of your stone doesn’t have to be a chore, and we’re excited to share with you what we know about stone maintenance and restoration!
