Denver Natural Stone: Top Residential Uses for Limestone


January 8, 2020

The ability to incorporate natural materials into home design has been growing in popularity for quite some time. While these offerings have long been among the choices for different areas within a home, it was not until open concepts and more rustic design characteristics rose in popularity that natural stone surfaces saw their just due. From an initial installation as countertops, these surface options are now expanding their use throughout households across the country.

No matter your personal preference on current interior design styles, from minimalist to modern, traditional and everything in between - incorporating a natural stone look into some aspect of your home can reap rewarding benefits. The look not only helps to incorporate the exterior and interior dynamics of a home but it also can lead to some unique styles and characteristics for almost any property.

With positive impacts both inside and out, limestone is a material often not given much consideration but one that can significantly enhance the style of your residence.

Indoor

Some of the best ways to utilize limestone in the design of your home involve bathrooms but other options also exist. From incorporating limestone to give your master bath a personal spa feeling either as a vanity countertop or shower wall, the versatility of this material in such a space is wide ranging.

Given the durability and clean appearance of limestone, the options for use within a bathroom - master or otherwise - are seemingly endless. To upgrade your existing surfaces to a more modern feel, consider giving limestone a try.

Outdoor

There are also multiple ways to use limestone outside the home. As an all-natural option, the ability to withstand the elements comes with ease as limestone serves to enhance the exterior of your property as well. Able to be used as both a functional and aesthetically pleasing option on the outside, there are two main features for this material in high traffic areas.

An excellent option as either a walkway ground cover or driveway material, the natural components of limestone make it a durable yet resilient product. Able to withstand the temperature fluctuations throughout varying seasons in the area while maintaining its current form - limestone is extremely resilient to cracking and breaking. In addition, the availability of acquiring limestone either in a natural state, crushed form, or brick composite also expands the availability of exactly which material you wish to incorporate within your outdoor landscape.

Denver Natural Stone: Timeless Kitchen Trends Continue


November 20, 2019

One of the most important rooms within a home and a huge selling point to potential buyers, kitchen design has always been an important concept. From open floor plans to older, boxed-in style kitchens, there are some aspects that have always been important components of the design process and are expected to continue well into the future.

While there are many kitchen trends for 2019, many fall into the same categories of those detailed specifics that have lasted for centuries. No matter if you are purchasing a new home or completing a kitchen remodeling project, you’ll want to maintain these practices in order to ensure you not only end up with a functional space but also one that will maintain its value and perhaps even increase the overall worth of your property - now and into the future.

Countertops
Natural stone countertops have been a timeless option for years now. From the incorporation of granite to quartz and many other options, the availability and functionality of stone only continues to rise in popularity. 

Space
Storage space has always been a key component and is garnering more attention as time passes. Gone are the days of keeping appliances out on the counters or having microwaves sitting atop surfaces. Opening up space for preparing meals and keeping the “open” concept alive throughout the kitchen is expected to continue.

Colors
There are obviously different colors to paint a kitchen and while adding a splash here or there has always been relevant, the timeless classics are also still extremely popular. Greys, whites, black, and earthtones rule the day but adding multiple colors or alternate island countertops are increasing in popularity.

Sink
Large, functional sinks have always been an important centerpiece to the kitchen. While appliances will always need their space, where the kitchen sink sits essentially maps out the entire space. Utilizing a statement sink is a solid foundation from which to design your dream kitchen.

Fixtures
Along those same lines, the style, type, and color of fixtures used can also add to the overall value of your kitchen space. Classic, galvanized and gun-metal looking options that were initially used years ago continue to be the trend with newer concepts - such as hook necks for washing dishes and space, taking over.

Denver Natural Stone Backsplash Benefits


October 15, 2019

The modern trends within kitchens continue to brighten homes all across the country. Open floor plans and the revitalization of bars, islands, and peninsulas for breakfast spots and eating spaces have increased the usage of these areas over a traditional dining room for many homeowners.

Rising with these changes have been natural stone countertops. Replacing older, peeling solid-surface options, these harder and more durable materials also last a lifetime. Once incorporated into your kitchen, you’ll wonder how you ever survived without them. Now, these same styles and designs are climbing the walls with natural stone backsplash options also increasing in popularity. While available as tiles or stacked options, another common method is to utilize a solid-slab, similar to the countertop. Doing so, offers the following benefits.  

Bold Design

Instead of simply having a different pattern of material, keeping the same stone utilized for the countertop and extending it up the wall to serve as a backsplash creates a bold design concept. Particularly favorable in open floor plans where the material can be seen from across the home, this allows for the surface to serve in two different ways - as it was intended for a protective backsplash and as a focal point for the kitchen itself. Matched with cooperative cabinet colors, this style can definitely take your kitchen to the next level.

Cleaning

Wiping down kitchen backsplash can be a daunting task, having to get in between tiles and ensuring grout lines do not show stains or trap food. Especially when using the stove, splatter can unexpectedly end up on the surface and may not be tended to until after it has dried - making it more difficult to remove. When utilizing a solid-slab backsplash option, these worries disappear. Able to be cleaned with a simple wipe-down, exactly like the countertop, makes clean up a breeze.

Heat Resistant

Backsplash is typically installed around sinks and stoves. The latter could make it subject to being compromised by the heat, depending on the material chosen. If using a solid slab natural stone material, then there should be no worries. While it is recommended that owners still utilize trivets and pot holders on the countertop surface, any potential interaction from the backsplash perspective should be negated.

Denver Natural Stone Kitchen Island Benefits


September 11, 2019

Modern kitchen designs have helped to transform this area into one of the most important rooms within a home. Kitchens are now not only being used for preparing meals but entertaining, in addition to offering an area where friends, family, guests, and sometimes even strangers can come together in order to share in fellowship and a meal. The rise in popularity and focus on achieving something that is not only aesthetically appealing to the eye but also functional, creates a unique scenario not found in other areas of a home.

Remodeling your kitchen can result in surprising benefits ranging from reducing energy costs to improved comfort and safety. One of the best additions any homeowner can make when completing such a project is creating a plan to achieve the latter and understanding that even a few minor changes can help to improve the overall usefulness of the kitchen area.

Implementing an island or upgrading an existing centerpiece is something that can greatly improve both the work space and design components of your indoor kitchen.

Design Difference
Contrasting kitchen islands allow for those concerned about the design concept to incorporate their own unique style. By having an island with a different color or countertop than a majority of the remaining kitchen - a modern feel is automatically granted for the workspace.

Extra Seating
Implementing an island component to an existing kitchen also allows homeowners the opportunity to add extra (less formal) seating. Instead of having a separate breakfast area or having to utilize a formal dining room for each and every meal, the island serves to provide a space for quicker meals to be consumed.

Storage Space
Not only do kitchen islands allow for design differences and a new place to eat, but typically they also function as additional storage space. Depending on the particular design selected, kitchen islands can provide a few new drawers for storing pots, pans, utensils, or other necessities with ease.

Additional Work Space
On top of the added storage is additional work space. Whether you utilize the new island countertop for food prep, serving, cooling, or even (unrelated) folding the laundry. Having a wide, spread out space available, plus all of the existing countertops allows for homeowners to receive the most benefit from their added island space.

The fire typically keeps bugs away and families can make more use of their space and home when it can be used at any time of the year.
