    Where is it best to place natural stone in a household?

    Where is it best to place natural stone in a household? What items would look good in different rooms and how should I place them (i.e next to what, on top of what, and so forth)?

    "Hi there,

    The best area to install natural stone in a kitchen is on top of the cabinets, as worktops and as splashbacks (protecting the walls from splashes).

    The best area to install natural stone in a bathroom is on top of the cabinets, as a vanity top protects them from water.

    The best area to install natural stone in a living room is in a fireplace surround as it is highly heat resistant and fire-proof.

    The best is to install natural stone in a bedroom is on the walls, creating great designs with its pattern.

    The best area to place a natural stone that goes throughout the home is flooring. Compared to other raw materials like wood, stone does not rot if it gets in contact with water. And when there is a lot of traffic, it can also be repolished after a few years, bringing back its original sheen.

    Hope this helps!"

    "the best place is surrounding your fireplace in your living room done plenty of them looks awesome and is heatproof and you could have it as your flooring instead of wood or tiles because wood does rott but stone you can put a seal on it and bring it back to its original look I hope that helps"
