There are various ways by which you can increase your home’s value. You could either do a pricey remodel, or re-do the outside of your home in order to add curb appeal or beautify the bathroom and do some serious upgrades on the kitchen. But the one thing that really makes your home pop is the use of genuine rock. Real stone is the height of elegance these days. You can use it in so many places and just make your home look so much more beautiful through it.
Upgrades in the kitchen and bathroom really make your home seem better. Especially since these are the places where you can actually use legitimate stone for both the purposes of decoration and functionality. These natural stone bench tops can really highlight your bathrooms and kitchen. It gives the space a level of finesse, elegance and beauty that it did not previously have. So it is always wise to use them for your kitchen countertops and bathroom vanity counters. If you want to get a better idea of how it can be used (in the bathroom especially) then just take to the internet and search for marble, granite or slate countertops and you will find an array of suggestion on how they can be used best.
Yes, it can be used on the floors too. If you can afford to spend that much money, then you can cover the floors in genuine rock. It will make you feel as though you are in a mansion. Ancient Greek structures, some of which are still around today were often made from magnificent white marble that glittered in the sun. Although these gorgeous rocks have faded today, they truly stood the test of time. Not to mention they were used to add splendour and glamour to the buildings in which it was used. Using these genuine slabs in your home will make your home feel like a million-dollar luxury resort. Just imagine walking into a bathroom that has marble all around you, it would be almost therapeutic and give you the feeling of being in a spa (and who does not want that?).
You can even use it for the outside of your home to give it a more sophisticated look. You can clad the outside walls with opaque limestone. You do not have to use the limestone from floor to ceiling though; you just need to use it for fences or as ledges. For fences you can have it partially done with metal, the bottom half can be of rock and the top half can be of an intricate metal design with rock pillars every so often to support it.
Beautifying your home makes it better for resale. And let us be honest, no one stays one place their whole life. So it is best to upgrade the home you are currently living in both for your sake and for resale purposes.
