Why you should use natural stone in your decoration project
Natural stone (marble, travertine or slate) is a high quality material, able to convey character and singularity to your decorated space. And if you analyze it in the long run, it is an efficient investment compared to other materials, because of its extended lifetime. So, why you should use natural stone for your decoration project?
Natural stone is available in many textures and patterns, each tile being unique and with a special story. This is a material shaped throughout many years and exposed to many minerals, therefore with a special energy.
Natural stone has an extended lifetime, one of world’s most durable materials. For example, when using ceramic tiles for decorating a bathroom, you will need replacement in a couple of years, which doubles your budget in the long run. And besides durability, natural stone has another great feature: it can be used for both exterior and interior decoration projects: cladding, flooring, kitchen countertops. Moreover, the latest technology allows processing natural stone in many creative ways: SKIN Flexible Slate is a good example. A material designed with German technology, SKIN flexible slate is extremely lightweight, very thin and therefore can be installed with minimum effort, not only on the wall but also on furniture pieces, doors or columns.

If your decoration project involves cladding the underfloor heating, you should know that natural stone is a slip-resistant material, able to absorb heat efficiently.
The most obvious feature of natural stone resides in its natural look: no matter what color or texture you neeed for your project, you can always find your ideal natural stone.
