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.

Denver Limestone Upgrades for Your Outdoor Space


June 26, 2019

Summer is here and that means everyone is emerging from the cold and bitter winter to engage in outdoor activities. Not only does this include enjoying parks and many other recreational activities but also the entertainment spaces available in our own backyards. If you’re interested in upgrading these spaces or building something new to enjoy this summer then consider using limestone to make an impact.

Not only can limestone be used as a patio flooring surface but the benefits and flexibility of the stone allow for it to be implemented in a number of other areas as well. Instead of just providing an area for outdoor gathering and eating, up the ante this summer and add something that can be used all year long - in addition to changing the floor. 

Fire Pit

A limestone fire pit can provide year round use, a fun gathering spot, and even some cooking benefits. These also help to knock off any chill in the air throughout the fall and winter months, plus an enjoyable evening to a summer night. 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. 

Seating

If you’re going to add a fire pit then you’ll need seating as well. Limestone can be used for a variety of construction projects, including being shaped into benches or individual seats. There are many advantages to limestone, including the ability to create an elegant look and feel to your area through its implementation.

Outdoor Kitchen

Another useful tool that can enhance your outdoor space and be provided through the use of limestone is building an outdoor kitchen. By blocking in a grill or outdoor cooktop and providing a solid countertop space to boot, the opportunities for engaging and using this newly created space are seemingly endless. If the space is covered, this new addition can be used during most weather scenarios, including for a majority of the year. Get out of the house and begin to explore the areas around your own home or entertain friends and neighbors by implementing the use of limestone and making something new today.

Denver Natural Stone Mudroom Floor Options


May 29, 2019

When most people think about implementing natural stone into their homes, immediately kitchen countertops come to mind. While this is obviously a legitimate consideration, in addition to how these stone surfaces began their breakthrough into the construction business and modern design trends, they have been expanding their impact ever since. 

Now, not only can natural stones be used for countertops, bathrooms, and backsplashes but flooring as well. One of the best available options for mudroom flooring is a natural stone surface that provides functionality and a quality look inside any home. The mudroom or entranceway serves a quality purpose to homeowners. Allowing guests and kids to remove any dirty clothing and especially shoes, these utility rooms also often feature the laundry set up and aid in the process of keeping the main components of a home free and clear of unnecessary dirt, debris, and clutter. 

Stone Options
Almost any of the same type of stone surfaces used for countertops can also be used for floor construction. Natural stone tile flooring can also be used throughout any surface of a home but choosing a specific type for the mudroom can be beneficial. 

These hardened surfaces allow for easy clean up and won’t trap any loose dirt and debris that may be tracked in from outside.

Stone Characteristics
While many individuals elect to have a smooth countertop surface when incorporating natural stone into their designs, a mudroom needs to be more abrasive. Choosing a rough finish, such as slate with a slight texture can serve to aid in the cleaning process.

Not only will the rough texture assist in removing dirt from footwear but it also provides a non-slip surface which is important for any area of the home that is going to be subject to a heavy
amount of foot traffic.

Stone Aesthetics
No matter your preferred design style, there is a natural stone surface that can be incorporated and used as a flooring component. The colors and options available to homeowners are seemingly limitless for natural stone either as a countertop, backsplash, or when used as a flooring surface.

If you’re ready to consider an upgrade in your own home or are building a new construction then don’t forget that natural stone can be a solid flooring choice, especially for a mudroom. Our specially trained experts can assist in helping you select the best design and all appropriate materials.
