home accessories from natural and engineered stone

Opinion: home accessories from stone


Just think of interior accessories made of fine natural stone! Adding marble, quartzite, travertine or granite details to your walls or furniture pieces will make your interior unique. It is even better if your stone accessories match your stone fireplace, floors, window sills, tabletops. Then your interior will look even more tuned and polished. In a home like this, you'll not only enjoy the aesthetics, but your visitors will be impressed.


By choosing marble for your interior accessories, you will add to the space some classic luxury. Be it a marble lamp base or marble shade for chandelier, this natural stone will prove itself in any form. Marble shelves or surrounds for wall niches can look very stylish. Marble details in the living room or bedroom do not require too much maintenance, and you can really feel the aesthetic difference. Using marble in this way is both beautiful and practical. 


If you hide the lamp bulb under a light-conducting onyx hood, it will glow mysteriously when switched on in the evening. If you install LED strips under onyx shelf or in wall niches topped with onyx, you can turn those onyx pieces into cosy night lights. Onyx interior details are popular in the lobbies of luxury business centres, hotels, restaurants and bars. Luxurious quartzite stone can also be translucent. Its dramatic patters become even more spectacular when backlit by artificial light sources. 


And then there are the exotic gemstones! Exotic gemstone slabs are also more or less translucent, depending on the type of stones they are composed of. Just imagine interior details of translucent blue agate, purple amethyst, pink quartzite. Gorgeous though not translucent home accessories can be made of red jasper, green amazonite, brown tiger's eye, fossilised wood. Each gemstone slab is a one-off work of art.   

If you like modest home decorations and accessories, then granite can be your stone. Granite can come in fantastic patterns too. Travertine and sandstone are two other types of stone that fit well in modest interiors and with many styles of furniture. They are often used in interiors to create the sense of hidden, unobtrusive luxury. Both travertine and sandstone accessories will have a warm, cosy look. 


A great alternative to natural stone home accessories are accessories made from artificial stone. Such accessories are water resistant and easy to clean. They can be used in the bathroom or on the balcony as a substitute for conventional furniture pieces. Cabinets with thin doors made of sintered stone, acrylic stone, ceramic or porcelain are practical in the kitchen and bathroom. Wall niches covered with ultra-thin sheets of sintered stone and ceramic, 6-10 mm thick, look modern and elegant. 


The hardest and most resistant artificial stone material that tolerates maximum wear and tear is sintered stone. The softest but most flexible and particularly suitable for irregular, angular, oval or other shaped interior decoration items is acrylic stone. Acrylic stone can be used for the most unusual interior fittings. It is suitable for making spectacular chandeliers, lamp stands, mirror bases, artistic flower pots.


Acrylic stone is a wonderful material for any accessories in kitchen and bathroom, such as wall shelves, niche surrounds. It is moisture-resistant and easy to clean. Acrylic solid surface can be used for sink lids and cutting boards. Partition walls and radiator shields made from thin sheets of acrylic stone look beautiful. They are practical because they are easy to clean and do not change shape due to humidity and temperature differences. All types of artificial stone are non-porous and do not absorb water.
