The most common uses for natural stone are in the kitchen but your application of the stone can be unique. There are many ways to personalize the application of your stone whether that be through your choice of edge profile, where you use it in the room and ways to use that extra bit of marble for unique touches that complete your look.

Adding Stone Ledges to Backsplashes

If you are looking for a way to enhance the use of your stone, consider adding a stone ledge. This is a sleek way to add shelving to your kitchen while keeping a minimalist feel by using the same material as the backsplash.

Fluted Textures Within the Kitchen

The texture that “fluting” brings to a design is unique and gives dimension. Adding this fluted wood design to the base of your island with a stone countertop adds texture and draws your attention to your island for a statement. For some inspiration, you can see how the fluted texture of the Lilac Scuro Marble island enhances the design.

Rounded Stone Edge Profiles

For a fresh and high design, curved islands in the kitchen are a great way to soften the look of your design while still keeping a complex look. There are a couple of different ways to achieve this curvy island feel. If you want the countertop to have the curved look, opt for a rounded edge profile paired with an oval-shaped cut for your countertop with a curved oval base for your island. For a more dramatic impact, you can have the stone look like it was cut from the mountain and shaped into your island by having a complete, rounded stone island.

Natural Stone Trims and Doorways

Another way to incorporate your stone in a unique way is to use the stone as an accent in the room by applying it as trim or to line your door frames. With homeowners straying away from simple, white trim, this is a perfect way to incorporate your stone even further with your design.
