Denver Home Uses for Travertine Tile


January 2, 2020

Many construction materials have a sole purpose to serve in a project. Hardwood floors are specifically for the surface areas, granite is typically reserved for countertops and bricks are utilized to construct a standing wall or barrier. Even if the latter is used inside, it's often in the same type of application, as an exposed interior wall. The range of uses for many items often doesn’t exceed their intended purpose.

This is not true of travertine tile. A unique material with extreme versatility, travertine can be used on anything from floors, walls, counters, to outside surface areas. A resilient and modern material with multiple color options available to fit a wide array of design styles, these tiles are often the answer homeowners are looking for when deciding exactly what is needed for a particular space. 

Indoor
Inside the home, travertine tiles can be used in a number of different rooms. From the kitchen and bathroom to entrance areas or flooring, the possibilities are endless. In areas prone to water exposure, around sinks, these tiles can be used to create a unique backsplash design which can quickly become the centerpiece of a room.

As with any material, there are pros and cons of travertine flooring but the sheer flexibility of this material and ability to tie it into multiple areas throughout a home can be beneficial from a design perspective. With open floor plans becoming the norm in modern construction, finding a way to connect different spaces can be difficult but these tiles provide an effective solution. 

Outdoor
The walls of a home aren’t enough to keep travertine from escaping as there are multiple uses for this material outside as well. One is to create a pool deck that is protective and provides a non-slip style of surface. Just as the same materials protect your walls above sinks within a home, the outdoor tiles can help connect the home’s exit to the pool area, providing a durable and long lasting surface able to withstand the elements.

In addition, for those wishing to make a splash from their entranceway. Using tile pavers as an alternative to concrete or asphalt as a driveway also has advantages. Instead of having to worry about cracking with the constant freezing and thawing, tiles can be easily replaced and are one of the best suited materials for dealing with cold weather.

Both
Using travertine tile as a casing for a fireplace is something that can be utilized both inside or outside the home. As a design component inside and a simple solution for an outdoor fire pit outdoors, the flexibility of this material is excellent.

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. 

If you’re ready for an upgrade to a natural stone surface in your kitchen or wish to create an entirely new look for any area within your home, then we’re here and ready to help move your project forward.

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 Outdoor Flooring Surface Options


October 2, 2019

One of the hottest trends in home design today is incorporating an outdoor space for family and friends to gather. Whether this is initially installed during the construction process or added onto an existing property as a remodel type project, extending your living space to the outside can be an extremely rewarding experience.

In many cases, this area will also incorporate a grill, griddle, or be designed to enjoy the benefits of a full outdoor kitchen. Being able to both prepare meals, serve, and entertain guests all in one area can be a huge plus for homeowners. Instead of having individuals tracking in and out of your home, constructing this type of space is not only great for meal prep and serving but can also increase your property value. However, one area that is often not given the consideration it deserves, is exactly what type of flooring material to use. Fortunately, there are many options available to serve your needs.

Granite
This extremely durable and long lasting material can provide years of use without showing any signs of wear and tear. In addition, if the area is also used as a cooking or eating space then any spills should clean up quick and easy on this surface. Available in irregular or specific patterns, once installed the maintenance and upkeep on outdoor granite flooring is minimal.

Tile
Tile floors offer some of the same benefits as granite but may be available in more variety at a little less price point. In addition, these can be installed to create more regular patterns and even give the appearance of a deck with wood look tiles. While upkeep is relatively easy and durability near the same as granite, should any cracks or damage appear, these tiles will be far easier to repair than in the unlikely event something were to ever damage a granite surface.

Travertine
Travertine flooring pros and cons also include similar benefits as the two preceding options with one major exception. The upkeep and maintenance required for these flooring options can be somewhat complicated, especially when being utilized outdoors. However, for homeowners who are looking for a bit of luxury or to create a specific look and feel to their outdoor space, then travertine could be right for you.

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.
