10 great suggestions for using natural stone in your home

Increasingly, we turn to stone as a natural and beautiful material with which to round out the interior and the exterior. Even historical monuments, such as Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids can serve us as an inspiration. Of course, the home project is much smaller in scale, but with the gneiss from Valmarg Stone we will achieve no less spectacular effect. Places that can stand out with gneiss cladding are many – at home and in the yard. Take a look at ten of them.

Cladding with gneiss

We can choose for cladding separate walls or columns, to clad a part of the external walls or the fence. The two shades of Ivaylovgrad gneiss from Valmarg Stone give you the option to choose – silver-gray or golden-beige. Especially if you choose cladding with gneiss bones, it will be a cheap way to achieve an impressive effect.

Kitchen countertop with supporting gneiss columns

Gneiss elements are welcome in every room, including the kitchen. If the kitchen countertop has supporting gneiss columns, this will decidedly add originality of the whole kitchen interior. To emphasize the columns, place lighting under the countertop.

In fact, where we will add gneiss as a decoration depends on our vision and our preferences. We don’t even need to clad entire walls – cladding only vertical stripes along the edges to imitate columns, is impressive enough. In the corner, in the niche, on the side of the fireplace, in a part of the corridor – the possibilities are many. Satisfaction is always great, especially when our guests make compliments.
