The Natural Stone Phenomenon Strikes The United States

Dec 8, 2007
For many years the most used choice for kitchen countertops and floors was vinyl tile, linoleum, or ceramic tile. Ceramic tile was durable and had been around for many years.

Vinyl and linoleum were new man made products and people loved it because it gave them a stylish modern way to decorate their kitchens and bathrooms in a wide range of colors and patterns. Starting about the 1950's it was a new modern world and everyone wanted to decorate their homes with the latest things.

We all know that there have been many trends in decorating that have come and gone over the years. Wood paneling was very popular in the 1960's and 1970's, but not any more. At the turn of the 20th century, hardwood floors were popular then, and there has been a return to the love of hardwood floors by some today.

There is one product that almost everyone seems to be in love with for home decorating right now and that is natural stone. Natural stone is one of the oldest products in the entire world and it has been used over and over again throughout history. It has been used inside and outside homes. It has been used for very useful purposes and also for very decorative purposes.

Natural stone is being used in just about all areas of the home on the inside and outside again. It is probably the most popular surface for countertops in bathrooms and kitchens.

It has been used for flooring for ages all over the world, but its popularity for use today has become almost phenomenal. The patterns and colors that natural stone can be found in is almost as broad as the man made materials.

People want to return to using more natural products in their lives any where they can. In the clothes we wear, the foods we eat, and in the things we use to clean and furnish our homes. Natural stone fits the bill perfectly. Not only is it popular for its natural beauty, but for its durability as well.

Countertops and floors are only two places that natural stones can be used for. Other popular things that natural stone is being used for is bathtub, shower, and fireplace surrounds, walls, paths and walkways, patios, hot tub and swimming pool surrounds, fountains, ponds, and many other things. Adding natural stone to anywhere on your property, inside or outside will add value to your home.
