Adding Limestone To A Home
If you want to update your home in a few unique ways, there are plenty of things you can do. You may not want to tear out the whole kitchen or add another bedroom to the back of the house, but you can upgrade things by adding new materials that make a big difference. Limestone is such a material that can take your home from normal to unique and upgraded. When you work with a material that has been used in a number of ways for thousands of years, you have something beautiful and natural in your home. So where should you put limestone to make the biggest impact on your house? Here are a few ideas.
Highlight The Stairs
If your stairs show from the entryway or in another important part of your home, make them count by adding luxury with limestone stairs. The beauty and class the limestone will add to the staircase will take it to a whole new level. It will no longer just be a staircase; it’ll be a centerpiece of beauty and style.
Add A Fountain
If you don’t want to redo the whole garden in order to enjoy your outdoor living space, all you might need to add is a fountain made from limestone. You’ll enjoy the sounds of trickling water as you relax and you can take a look at unique beauty at the same time. Limestone fountains hold up well in any weather conditions and they don’t rust or show water spots, either. They can also be carved in unique manners so they are one of a kind, made special just for your yard.
Divide With Columns
The open floor plan is huge right now, but that doesn’t mean you won’t want a little separation and privacy between rooms. Adding limestone columns between rooms can give you that separation you want while still leaving things open. They also give you an extra element of beauty that you never thought you’d have. You can also put columns outside to give you a unique entrance to your backyard or as an extra statement on the front porch.
The fireplace is often the center of the room and if it is boring, it doesn’t add anything at all. A limestone fireplace will add plenty and you will center gatherings around it because of its attractive beauty. Limestone is a natural material that works in nicely as a fireplace and since it can be carved into unique shapes, it can take on the look of an art piece as well.
There are a number of other ways you can use limestone to upgrade the look of your home. Though incorporating limestone in one small area might seem like a small change, it will make a huge impact on the overall look and feel of your home.
