No…Not that kind of stoned!
This kind of Stoned!
Ever really wonder what the differences are and the best uses? Well we hear all the time in the real estate world and again on that HGTV about granite countertops, as if Granite is all that is available! (By the way, most granite counters less than 10 years old use resin to fill natural gaps in the stone, and they can’t take the heat from hot pots, which is why a lot of people want the granite in the first place!) There are so many other choices out there, and if specified and used in the right application, they can live a lifetime or two if cared for properly. Stone is a natural material and can be so beautiful if maintained correctly! Being that it is a natural material, it requires different care than simply swiffering or windexing like we would see in synthetic products.
Here is a wonderful link to tell you all about the different types of stones, the best uses, how the good earth formed them, and the best way to maintain them! Next time you are thinking about renovations or design … think twice about that laminate or ceramic… go on… be brave!
