How to Fit Custom Limestone Into Your Home

Putting Together Custom Limestone Pieces

When your house needs just a little something extra, or you want to infuse a certain style or elegance into your home, a custom limestone piece might be just what you are looking for. When you choose this material, you are getting something natural and long-lasting at the same time. It’s a material that has a classic appeal, so it won’t ever go out of style, either. One of the best things about limestone is that it can be completely customized to suit your tastes and your home’s décor. Here are a few things you can do to customize your limestone features. 

Getting Limestone in the First Place

Even if you do nothing at all to the limestone you are placing in your home, you are getting something unique and customized. Limestone occurs naturally and there are no two identical pieces. Just knowing that the limestone material itself is completely unique could be enough for you, but there are plenty of other things you can do to make it stand out even more.


Limestone is a softer stone that feels good under the feet as flooring, but it also holds up well to wear and tear over the years. If you are going to use it as a kitchen hood, fireplace, or something else of that nature, you can have it customized to suit your style with certain carvings. Perhaps you want strong, streamlined appearances that go along with a few cuts like in vertical lines. Or, if you want an ornate look, you can get flowers, decorations, or even statue-like figures carved into the limestone. You could even customize it with initials, a name, or in other ways.

The Colors

Limestone has natural colors that are generally lighter in tone, but the colors you choose for your home can help the piece look that much more customized. If you choose a color, for example, that blends into the room, it looks like the piece has always been there and fits in perfectly. If, on the other hand, you want it to stand out, choose a nice contrast that allows the piece to become a central focus for the space.

The Piece Itself

If you want your limestone to have a more customized look, choose a piece that not just anyone has in their home. Many people have limestone floors and you can install those as well, but if you want to set your home apart, you should choose a unique look that is special to only your home. A customized piece, like a kitchen hood for example, would stand out. 

Working With Custom Limestone

Every piece of limestone is already customized because there are no other limestone slabs that are identical. But there are plenty of things you can do to get the exact right look and feel for your home. The professionals at Impression can help you work with your limestone options to get the exact right fit for your home with every perfect customization. This is one material that you can form into just what you want it to be for your project.
