Denver Natural Stone Shower Options


May 1, 2020

Incorporating natural stone into your bathroom is not only a way to give your space the feeling of a spa but it can also enhance your design style and may even brighten your mood. Most humans are creatures of habit, following the same basic routines each and every morning or evening as they either start or conclude their day. Typically, this involves showering or at least some time spent in the bathroom of a home and since this area is obviously one of the most important throughout an entire property, it should be comfortable, efficient, and designed to meet the needs of a homeowner.

Natural stone bathroom designs have been growing in popularity throughout the real estate market in all areas of the country. From new construction properties to individuals who are electing to upgrade or remodel either the master bath or a guest option in their own home, the utilization of incorporating natural stone materials has flourished. From flooring, walls, countertops, or even accent pieces, the natural stone movement appears poised to flourish this year and beyond. One of the most prized areas for incorporating this material into bathroom plans focuses on the shower with each of the following leading the way.

Slate

One of the most functional yet versatile options available to homeowners are slate tiles. These can be used from the floor all the way up to the ceiling in order to create the precise shower design desired. Able to be used as a floor covering, which is typically one of the least slick options of natural stone, the colors, shapes, and sizes available make this one of the best choices a homeowner can make.

Marble

Marble may add more of a natural feel to your bathroom but can be a little more expensive than some other options. However, advances in technology have allowed this once elite only stone to be utilized by many more people on a regular basis. Color options are also not as limited as they once were and adding marble - if even just for an accent stripe or tile - can add a splash of color to your bathroom.

Granite

Initially thought of as only a countertop option, granite can also provide a premium surface solution for your shower needs. Extremely resilient to constant water, soap, and other cleaning products (both for the body and shower) exposure, granite can give your existing bath an immediate outdoor or spa feel.

If ready to upgrade your existing shower materials or create a new look entirely for the bathroom, then we’re here and ready to help move your remodeling project forward. Our specially trained experts can assist in helping you select the best design and all appropriate materials.

Denver Natural Stone: Consider Slate In and Around Your Home


December 3, 2019

If you’re in the market for an interior makeover or looking to add a splash of color into your living room or another area of your home, then consider giving slate a try. While many homeowners are quick to pinpoint certain materials based solely on friendly recommendations or the most current trends in interior design, there is one natural stone surface that has been used for decades that offers a unique look but is extremely durable and may just be what you need.

While many people are familiar with slate roofing tiles, the benefits of utilizing this material also extend into the home. Offering a solution for areas which may receive a heavy amount of traffic or even an accent wall within a space, installing slate tiles can not only enhance the value of your property but also add a sense of design style and flair when used correctly. Consider these non-traditional but rising in popularity merits for slate in and around your home.

Flooring

A great choice for high traffic areas or places prone to contact with water (i.e. kitchens and bathrooms), slate flooring offers extreme durability while showing little to no signs of wear and tear. Also a great option for an entranceway that may be exposed to the elements - dirt, snow, ice, mud, and other outside materials - at times, slate is easy to clean and often darker in color so any dirt and debris won’t show.

Walls

Feel free to install slate as an accent wall within a given space or inside the bathroom. Surrounding tubs or even constructed as a shower wall, slate can transform your master bathroom while giving it a spa feeling that many homeowners desire. 

Fireplace

Similar to the accent wall, slate can also be used around a fireplace to give it a unique and modern look. Instead of old-fashioned brick casings, upgrading to a slate hearth can totally change the look and feel of a room.

Pavers

Outside the home, slate pavers can be used for a patio, walkway, stepping stones, or driveway. These materials are extremely durable and can withstand much of what Mother Nature has to offer while being exposed but also ready to accommodate friends and family gathering for a good time in a functional space. 

If you’re ready for an upgrade to a natural stone surface around your home or wish to create an entirely new look for any other area on property, then we’re here and ready to help your dreams come true.

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.
