Natural stone makes a perfect holiday gift


Rethink the holidays right now!

This year, why not forget all those disposable gifts that disappear by mid-year? Give yourself and your family something to enjoy that really lasts.

Natural stone is surprisingly affordable, available for every budget and can make a huge and dramatic change in your home.

Need some ideas?

Kitchens come first. Consider how many times a day you would enjoy new perimeter countertops, a new island, backsplash, decorative mosaics, colorful tile, fresh colors and finishes.

Natural stone would set a beautiful scene for your creative touches throughout the room.

Powder rooms might be the most fun. The area is small and the total costs can be surprising low.

Consider a new stone pedestal or floating sink, a slab of exotic stone for the counter, dramatic colors and designs in decorative borders, trims or mosaics.

Upgrade your shower stall experience with a bench, stone shelves, new tiled walls, trim and border accents. Put in a new vanity with stone sinks and countertops and perhaps totally change the design for a fresh look.

Do you have an outdoor chef at home? A stone countertop in an outdoor kitchen of any size will last a lifetime.

Add a built-in grill, lighting, a fire pit and some new furniture, and you've got a whole new room for your home.

Need more ideas for stone gifts?

Picture stone stairs at the front entry, a fountain, interior niches, stone benches, clad walls, fireplace surrounds and hearth or patios. Use a small piece of exotic stone or marble as an accent.

Consider replacing dated colors with fresh dramatic hues. The impact on your daily life and enjoyment will be long-lasting.

An experienced stone fabricator can create almost anything. Start now. Your holiday gift might not fit under the tree, but your family's pleasure will last a lifetime.
