Using stone outside of the kitchen

It's very common to use granite/quartz for kitchen countertops, both are timeless, elegant and sturdy material. But where else could you use these types of material? On this post we'll be exploring a few different areas around your house that you could consider using these stones.

Laundry room

There are two areas of the home that have been getting a lot of attention these days, the laundry room and the mudroom. Both have been getting a lot of hype as homeowners realize that these two areas can become great places to organize and store belongings.

Every laundry room needs a little counter space where you fold your clothes and store some of your products.

For this one, we recommend using quartz, because the last thing you want is detergence, beach or fabric softeners touching a natural stone surface, since those can be very easy to stain.

Fireplace surrounding

For homeowners looking to make their fireplace stand out, nothing like a natural stone or quartz to help you achieve a jaw-dropping statement area.

You spend a lot of time in your living room. And it’s often on display to your guests. Because you utilize this space and have guests always seeing this part of your home, it’s worth taking the time to make it look nice.

Granite is an igneous rock, formed when magma beneath the earth’s surface cools and solidifies. Because it is created by extreme heat, granite develops a resistance to it – even a hot pan placed directly on the surface will not damage it. The ambient heat that emanates from a home fireplace will not cause damage, even over sustained periods of time.

Shower walls

Okay, this is my favorite one. First let me start by saying that if you're looking to do

your shower wall, you should probably opt for engineered quartz. Quartz shower walls panels exude the look and feel of luxury. The fact that it is a man-made product means that it can arranged to have the appearance of similar natural stones like granite or marble, allowing home designers and homeowners to customize the design. Not to forget that this material is not porous and it is bacteria free. So you know.. It's a win win.
