Self Build advice: Adding natural stone inside your home

Incorporating Natural stone inside your Self-build

The use of stone cladding can serve as a focal point or an accent wall, adding depth and character to the space. The contrasting effect of the rustic stone against sleek, contemporary elements will make your self-build look visually appealing.

This integration of Natural Stone inside your new Self Build can provide a sense of warmth and authenticity, connecting the modern design with natural elements of stone. Consider incorporating the stone in specific areas, such as a fireplace surround, feature walls, or exterior facades.

Here are ways to add Natural Stone to the Interiors of your home:

  • Bring Exterior Stone Inside: Continuity in the use of natural stone creates a seamless transition between the exterior and interior, this creates a unified and balanced design that can be visually appealing.
  • Natural Aesthetics: Natural stone has a timeless and authentic appeal. Bringing it indoors allows you to enjoy the beauty of the material throughout the year.
  • Add lighting to highlight the Stone Work: Another way to ensure the stone is a focal point that adds warmth to your home is to ensure proper lighting is used to highlight the stone’s texture and enhance its visual appeal.
  • Texture and Depth: Natural stone provides a unique texture and depth that can be particularly striking indoors. It can serve as a focal point, especially in areas like feature walls, fireplaces, or entryways, adding character and interest to the space.
  • Thermal Mass: Stone has excellent thermal mass properties, meaning it can absorb, store, and release heat slowly. This can contribute to the overall energy efficiency of your home by helping to regulate indoor temperatures.
    Combine Stone with other materials: Combining Natural stone with other materials like glass, steel, or wood for a balanced and cohesive design.
  • Increased Property Value: The use of high-quality, natural materials like stone can enhance the perceived value of your property. Potential buyers often appreciate the integration of premium materials, which can positively impact resale value.
  • Personalisation: At Stone Solutions NI our Natural Stone comes in various types, colours, and finishes. Choosing the same stone for both exterior and interior allows for personalisation and customization to suit your design preferences – because we manufacture the cladding in-house we can customise the size and color to suit your home.
