Interior design trends come and go, but if there’s one thing that’s timeless it’s a love of authentic materials, and you can’t get much more authentic than natural stone tiles.
More so than ever, in recent years design trends have skewed towards natural materials as people have sought to find designs that combine sleek modernity with the simple beauty of the environment. Natural stone tiles provide this in abundance with their beautiful patterns and aesthetic versatility. Put simply, they look nice in almost any setting.
Bespoke Stone Tiles
As the popularity of natural stone tiles has increased, so too has the popularity of bespoke stonework. Bespoke stonework is all about creating a design that fits the room, matching the materials to your needs.
One place where such work is often necessary is wall tiles. Although versatile and long-lasting, natural stone tiles are sometimes too heavy to function as wall tiles, however good bespoke stonework can get around this through lightweight designs.
Natural stone tiling doesn’t have to be one single material. Oftentimes, people will combine different types of stone for a unique effect. For example, dark marble is often contrasted with light marble in order to create patterns.
Mosaics take this to a whole new level, creating materials that combine the very best of a ‘natural’ and a ‘designed’ aesthetic.
Natural Stone Is Long Lasting
Of course, if you really want to find a reason for the rise in bespoke stonework then look no further than the value for money. Natural stonework is a long-lasting solution that will look great for decades to come. It’s highly resistant to both damage and stains and is very easy to clean.
As people look for longer-lasting design solutions, the popularity of materials that have been proven to give excellent value is only increasing. Natural stone is a perfect example of a material where, if you’re willing to invest a little more money upfront, you’ll have a floor that will last you for years to come.
The Value Of Timeless Design
When designing your house, you want a look you can fall in love with. After all, you’re probably going to spend years with this floor, seeing it every day. It’s hard, therefore, to underestimate just how much value you’ll get out of a truly timeless design. Not only will you continue to love the look of your home, but it will also help to future-proof its value, saving you costly renovations should you ever choose to move out.
At the end of the day, while trends may continue to come and go, we believe that natural stone tiles are here to stay.
