When it comes to making your home beautiful and making a statement, natural slab stone may be the way to do it. In this youtube video, Maia Roffey of Black Sheep Interior Design walks through what to look for when selecting natural stone or man-made stone.
Natural stone is more than just a white block with a gray vein, instead, it can be made up of fun colors. These colors were created from the mineral and metals that have been compressed by the earth for millions of years.
Having something with so much history in your home is an honor.
Not only color is something to consider, but you also want to consider the way the slab was sliced. Stone that was sliced across is going to look different from one that was sliced down. Some stones even come in smaller sizes due to the delicate nature of the stone. Some stones are even more high maintenance. When selecting a stone, be sure to consider the color you desire, the type of maintenance you want to keep up with, and the size of the area you want to cover in stone.
