Stone fireplace housing—marble, limestone, sandstone, travertine, granite or slate?
The fire from your fireplace is the most decorative interior element.
Stone used for veneer surfaces is 2-5 cm thick. Vertically laid stones are generally 2-3 cm thick. On horizontal surfaces, such as countertops or shelves, the thickness is at least 3 cm. If we apply thicker adhesive mortar, the finished surface becomes more massive.
Still the most popular choice, marble features extravagant colors and rich veins, at a relatively low price. This lavish, translucent stone has always projected luxury. It is often used in interiors due to its opulence, aesthetics, and rich palette of colors, emoting shades of white, yellow, gray, pink, red, brown, green and black.
Comes in cool shades and creates a uniform surface of neutral color – a perfect background for creating and contrasting colors and textures. Ideal for modern, minimalist or rustic interiors, its natural surface is slightly rough, producing the illusion of years of wear and tear. Enclosures should be impregnated with lime.
Harder than limestone, but porous and easily stained. It is often used for rustic fireplaces. It can be cleaved, or milled in the form of beams, gaps and heads. Polished sandstone is great for shelves because it’s easier to keep clean.
A type of limestone, it is full of pores and grooves, and is a warm honey-golden color. Travertine used most commonly on uprights, worktops and floors. Travertine should be sealed to protect it from soil and stains.
The most resistant to discoloration, but rarely used as a fireplace casing material. This stone is not only expensive, but also difficult to process. It comes in a rich range of colors - from deep black through various shades of gray, red, green, yellow, purple, to pearl white, salmon pink, faded beige, and intense brown. As a non-absorbent material, it is easy to keep clean, and it is resistant to even the most abrasive cleaning agents. The most popular uses in homes are cabinet tops made from polished "high gloss" sheets.
Used more frequently in fireplace enclosures recently, slate is as resistant as granite and much easier to work. It contains silica and mica crystals, making it shimmer in the light of the fire. It is quite decorative and unique. Slate is available in graphite gray, blue, green, or orange-yellow.
How do you clean marble in the bathroom?
Stone is a natural material with a long life, and in my opinion a very good investment. However, use in the bathroom necessitates proper care. First, you cannot clean it with common cleaning agents - they contain acid and chlorine, which eat into the surface of the stone and cause permanent discoloration. Polished stone requires frequent cleaning because it is easily caked with hard water spots. Prior to installation of stone in the bathroom it should be well sealed.
Natural stone gives the bathroom a noble and unique character. Stone is unique and original, with depth of color and variety of natural design unlike any other material. Natural materials like stone and wood blend together. So let's get to the travertine, marble, granite or onyx sun.
