Unique Ways to use Stone in Your Kitchen
If you’re looking for luxurious and creative ways to style your kitchen during your next home renovations you’ve come to the right place! Stone has a lot of practical uses in a home, but it can also add an air of luxury and a beautiful touch to a space. Here are some of our top creative ways to implement stone into your kitchen.
Countertops and Worktops
This is definitely the most common and obvious use for stone in your kitchen, but stone countertops actually bring a lot of practicality along with beauty to your space. Marble countertops are great for bakers as they remain naturally cold which is great for working with doughs and baked goods, while granite and quartz countertops remain a great option for the chefs out there! Granite countertops are heat resistant and durable and Quartz maintains the same level of durability while also being highly stain resistant. With islands and countertops being one of the most prominent parts of your kitchen, it’s a great place to make a design statement, and what better way to make a statement than with a stunning piece of stone!? Whether you chose simple and clean or bold and exotic, there is nothing more glamorous than stone.
Why stop at countertops when your favourite stone could extend up the wall? Using stone as a backsplash throughout your kitchen is a great alternative to a traditional tile that adds a classy look to the space that is also practical. Stones like quartz work great for this type of application as they do not require regular sealing and are durable & easy to clean. Their stain restart qualities also help with splashes from cooking.
Stone shelving can add a beautiful touch to your space while creating more storage space for things like dinnerware, serve ware, and décor that you would like to display. Check out these cool accent shelves installed on top of this granite backsplash!
Cutting Boards And Cheese Boards
Looking for a less permanent and unique way to add stone to your space? Making cheese boards and cutting boards out of stone is a great way to add an elegant and functional accent to your kitchen countertop project.
These are all stunning and unique ways to add the stone look to your space that can fit any budget and style. Do you love these ideas but you’re not sure where to start?
