Limestone is an incredibly versatile and durable, natural material that can be used to enhance the appearance of your home. It has a wide range of applications and lends itself well to a variety of design styles.
Let’s take a look at some of the best ways you can use limestone to enhance the appearance of your home:
The most common use of limestone is for home exteriors, but this luxurious stone can also be used on interior walls and floors. Some potential uses include:
In the kitchen
A limestone counter or bar top is an excellent way to add extra style and elegance to your kitchen. It will also make it easier for you to clean up messes such as spills and splashes, because it doesn’t stain easily like other types of stone.
In the bathroom
If there’s any area where having easy-to-clean surfaces is important, it’s the bathroom. With limestone being so resistant against stains, there’s no need for major scrubbing. Not to mention, its beautiful appearance can help craft your dream bathroom.
Elegant staircases, fireplaces, columns, window and door frames, fountains, and balusters can all be created using crushed limestone blended with fine materials to craft a range of finished looks that compliment your home.
Limestone also has many landscaping applications that can increase your curb appeal and beautify your property.
One of the most common outdoor uses is pavers, due to the ability of limestone to reflect light and cool off outdoor areas such as walkways, patios, and pool decks. This material is ideal for pavers as it is long-lasting, versatile, and comes in a variety of styles.
Limestone is also used to create drainage ditches and driveways. When crushed, it’s commonly used to coat roofs, enrich soil, and prevent erosion.
