How Can You Use Stone in and Around the Home?

Have you ever wondered just how multi-purpose stone actually is? From paving, to stepping-stones and stacked stone feature walls, stone is a versatile building material that can be utilised in and around the home.

In the Yard

Bluestone stepping stones

Available in a range of shapes, sizes and colours, stepping-stones are the perfect addition to any outdoor area. Often used to make a walking path, stepping-stones will protect your garden from stomping feet and the kids will love jumping from stone to stone!

As an Outdoor Feature

You can utilise almost any type of stone to create an eye-catching back or front yard feature, like the one pictured here. Stone can also be used to build a retaining wall or for garden beds in your outdoor areas.

In the Bathroom

On the walls, floors, and shower floor, you can use stone pretty much anywhere in your bathroom. Stone also creates a sense of luxury and never goes out of style.

 As a Feature Wall
