The new stone age
Renovations are all about modern liveability – how a home looks, feels and flows. More than ever renovators are looking for solutions that combine long-lasting beauty and consistency of comfort. So the hunt is naturally on for a way to achieve the perfect solution, while keeping costs down, and using products that are durable, stylish and practical.
Natural stone is a versatile option, available in tiles, slabs, pavers and a wide range of products for interior spaces. It’s a dramatic substitute for materials such as ceramic and wood, with the ability to add sophistication to any room in the house, outdoor entertaining areas or garden landscaping.
‘Natural stone transforms homes,’ says Shaun Pakhiwala, RMS Traders Natural Stone Tiles manager. ‘There are no style fads, tricks or catches with natural stone, and once installed, an instant sense of luxury is achieved without homeowners needing to try too hard.’
Renovating a home with natural stone products increases the durability, sustainability and aesthetics of the build, which is an investment toward a better lifestyle – not just a more stylish home. By installing natural stone, renovators instantly add value to their homes and bring beauty and longevity to any space.
‘Once installed and sealed correctly, natural stones like travertine and limestone are soft to touch, retain cool temperatures, work perfectly indoors and out, and can withstand every challenge the Australian climate has to offer.’
With the right foundation, design and installation, a natural stone that flows through the home connecting outdoor with indoor spaces will allow homeowners to enjoy their property to the fullest potential, not only during summer but year-round.
