How to choose the right Natural Stone: Style, Balance & Colour.

Choosing the right stone for internal and external feature walls requires careful consideration, afterall, you have to live with it and so at Stone Solutions we want to make sure each customer loves the stone they choose.

In order to help our customers choose the perfect stone we dicuss various factors to ensure both aesthetic appeal and practicality. Here’s our quick and helpful guide to help you get started on making a more informed decision.

Our team are waiting to help you with any additional questions you may have.

Style & ambiance 

Determine the desired style and ambiance for both the interior and exterior spaces. Are you aiming for a modern, rustic, traditional, or contemporary look?

Our  Kilkenny Limestone works beautiful in modern spaces to add charm and character whereas Donegal Slate will create the perfect balance in a contemporary home.

Traditional homes often feature lighter Natural Donegal Sandstone or Natural Granite can be a beautiful addition to Georgian style homes.

Our team will be happy to advise you on which stone will  harmonize with the surrounding landscape, architecture, and interior decor. We will help you by considering the colors, textures, and patterns that complement the overall design scheme.

Creating Balance 

Selecting a stone for external walls and seamlessly extending it to internal feature walls can establish a captivating harmony throughout your space.

By carrying the same stone to your front porch, pillars, or external retaining walls, you not only maintain consistency in design but also enhance the overall cohesion and aesthetic appeal of your property.

This deliberate continuity creates a sense of flow and connection between the exterior and interior elements of your home, elevating its visual charm and architectural integrity.

Choosing Colours

Take into account the lighting conditions of the room where the feature wall will be installed. Natural light and artificial lighting can influence the appearance of the stone, highlighting its textures and colors differently throughout the day.

Pay attention to the color scheme of your room. Choose a stone that complements or contrasts with the existing colors to create visual interest. Earthy tones like beige, gray, and brown can be found in our stunning Basalt Natural Stone and we can custom how much one the shades you wish to see from the cladding.
