Increasing your home’s value with natural stone: Indoor edition

If you’re planning or in the process of renovating your home to sell for profit, consider incorporating natural stone in your fixer-upper project. Why use natural stone in your home makeover? Besides its superior design, function and the many other benefits that will give your home a competitive edge on the market, natural stone features are a sure way to increase value. 

Whether you’re looking to put your home on the market very soon or further down the line, investing in natural stone will help you yield ROI when it’s time to sell. Here are some ways you can incorporate natural stone features in your home to boost its value, according to our natural stone countertops experts.


There are plenty of ways to use natural stone in your bathroom renovation, starting with the countertops. Quartz, granite and marble are a few natural stone options that are ideal and commonly used for bathroom countertops. You can pair your countertops with a natural stone tile backsplash, shower, flooring or bathtub surround for an overall luxurious feel.


Kitchens are the most commonly renovated room in the home. Not only are natural stone countertops and kitchen islands a durable option to maintain quality long after you move out, but their beauty will help attract buyers and increase the return on your investment. Natural stone flooring and a tile backsplash are just a few more options to increase your home value in your kitchen. 

Living room

In addition to the bathroom and kitchen, you can easily incorporate natural stone into your living room to add value to your home. Stone flooring is one way to do it. Skip the carpet and install natural stone tile flooring for a super seamless look. Marble, granite, sandstone, flagstone, and limestone are some of the best options for flooring. Another awesome feature to implement in your living room renovation is an indoor fireplace, complete with a natural stone surround and entertainment center. 

Home office

Working from home is becoming more and more common in the aftermath of COVID-19. A home office is necessary for those homebuyers with a remote or hybrid-style job. A built-in natural stone desk can be the feature that sets your home apart. You can also provide additional shelving to store books and other office supplies.
