One trend that you will see more and more in 2018 is using multiple types of natural stone in one kitchen space. You can use granite as a countertop and slabs of marble, quartzite, or travertine as a backsplash. The possibilities are endless! Adding multiple stones will increase functionality and will make your kitchen more aesthetically pleasing. You can play around with different textures and colors to create a look that is unique to your home.
Black and white is one of the most timeless design trends to ever exist - because it works! These two colors are the definition of contrast, which is what a lot of designers strive for. They work together on walls, floors, countertops, and even appliances. This decorative trend is very much thriving in the natural stone world. It adds depth and character to any room, drawing in the eyes of your guests. You can also use this design trend in your bathroom, outside, in your living room, or even your bedroom! Try limestone, quartzite, granite, and other options to make the look complete.
Recently, it has become very popular to emphasize the natural materials that are a part of interior design. Nature is in every space of our home. Natural stone comes from the earth, so designers like to incorporate that into their work. Sustainability and craft work is important for every design, and in order to find the most sustainable products, many seek out products that come from nature. Natural stone will give your space “nature vibes,” as well as emit feelings of peace and serenity.
Natural stone can make any room look sophisticated, classy, and inspiring. Many people are now adding natural stone walls to their bedrooms. The versatility and design options create a stunning, rustic look in your bedroom that will draw in the eyes of your guests. The ambience that this type of wall gives off is perfect to come home to after a long day at work. You can also decorate the rest of your room to match the wall itself. Try going for a unique color such as brown, green, or blue!
