Popularity of stone in different arrangement ideas.

 When choosing materials for window - sills, floorings or countertops, we have to reflect on the specific properties of this material. Countertops should be resistant to mechanical damage, sills and floors, on the other hand, have to be characterized by the resistance to water. Equally important is the ease with each different types of stains are removed. In most instances, stone works well in many applications. Stone stairs can be polished, flamed or brushed. In interiors designs, both natural stone and their engineered equivalents like conglomerates are applied. The most popular materials are:
    • marble,
    • granite,
    • travertine,
    • quartzgranite,
    • onyx,
    • sintered quartz.


The exposition of these materials on a particular surface has a strong impact on the whole arrangement of a given interior. Subtle, cold colours perfectly complement either Scandinavian or modern, more austere interiors. Stones in earth tones work fine in rustic and classic interiors. Floors can be laid with two types of stone, which is an interesting combination. Countertops should match a washbasin in the first place.
You can either hire an interior designer or plan an arrangement by yourself, yet every element must complement one another. How to do it and not regret your choice?

Stone samples

 Stone window – sills, countertops, floors and steps are made–to–measure. For this reason, our customers have to specify their requirements and provide us with the necessary dimensions. You can measure the length and the width of the surface on you own. However, a problem arises when it comes to choosing stone without the possibility of seeing a final effect. Most materials can be seen and touched at a sales point, yet this solution isn’t satisfactory, either. Fortunately, most shops and studios provide their customers with stone samples. These are in the shape of a small rectangular. Some producers offer to sell these samples, others offer their customers to loan such samples, but they charge them a deposit payment. It’s an ideal way to see at home, what stone will look like as a window – sill or a kitchen worktop. Unfortunately, you will be able to get a full picture of the whole arrangement, after the selected surfaces will be mounted. Nevertheless, stone samples are a much better option than hasty decisions in a shop, which in a home space might turn out to be misguided and ill-judged.
