Natural Stone More than just the kitchen





Heard it here first, feature walls are coming back and theres no surprise why. Natural stone offers durability for indoor and outdoor use along with an unmatched natural look.

Stone has been used a building product since the dawn of man, however the trend for using slabs for cladding was popularised as a modern architectural idea by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, who first used stone slabs in 1929 to create patterned features in the Barcelona Pavilion. The use of stone in this way is far from what people see natural stone as today, which is primarily for kitchen benchtops.

As a Marble Slab Supplier in Sydney, we have found that are two main ways to incorporate natural stones in your architectural space.

The feature wall mount

This application is where a slab is used in a feature area, where the stone is added like an artwork or statement piece.

In these instances, it is good to use stones and patterns that work well in small doses. These stones are good to use as they can sometimes be overpowering if used too much throughout the project, but as one piece, it adds significant flare and an eye catching feature to your home. Examples of where a stone slab can be used include the bathroom, bedroom, or living area.

This can be a cost-effective method to add a touch of elegance to your home, with an application like this being a lot simpler than a kitchen fabrication and install, saving you material and labour costs.

Then there is using stone for wall cladding.

This is where slabs of are book matched with each other against a wall. Marble slabs in Sydney are used for cladding in some of the luxury offices and homes. You only need to walk down George Street in the Sydney City to truly appreciate the marble wall cladding that is featured.

Using Marble wall cladding creates a pattern that is consistent throughout the entire wall. This is different from having tiles placed on a wall as there is no consistent pattern with tiles and you are unable to get the same effect.

To maximise the wow factor in using marble cladding it is best to choose a stone that has a pattern that can be book matched. Try to also choose something that isnt overly bold and powerful, as the stone will be used in larger quantities. This, however, can alter depending on how large the area is, your personal taste.

Natural stone wall cladding is little more complex due to the number of slabs required, and the skill of sophisticated stonemason who can match the veins of natural stones.
