Contemporary interior design lends itself well to stone features – something many people don’t realise! If your home is full of modern furnishings and decorations, you can still complement your design with beautiful stone fixtures and pieces. Here, we share our top tips for doing so!
Go minimalist with stone flooring
Stone flooring is an extremely elegant option for all types of properties. It also looks great in modern homes, as it’s stylish but fairly understated. For a contemporary look, opt for polished stone slabs in darker hues, such as charcoal grey.
Turn a stone fireplace into a focal point
Stone fireplaces can transform a bare space into a homely room – and they can also be used to enhance modern interiors! You can turn a stone fireplace into a focal point by leaving the mantlepiece bare or only decorating with one or two modern accessories. Put a quirky floor lamp next to the fireplace and hang an art print above the mantlepiece to make a statement.
Update your kitchen with stone worktops
Stone worktops can bring a certain warmth to kitchens without detracting from their modern or minimalist look. Stone worktops can make a statement without the need for lots of kitchen accessories, so make use of storage to ensure they don’t become cluttered over time.
Top tip: Suspend a modern light fixture above your worktops or breakfast bar to light up your stone worktops and give your kitchen an extra lift!
Enhance your bathroom with a stone sink
Stone features work particularly well in contemporary bathrooms. Pair a stone sink with large mirrors, stone shower tiles and muted colours to create an understated yet stylish look. Don’t forget to pay attention to your vanity area – stone basins instantly draw the eye to this point. A statement tap, such as a large brass tap, can also create a striking juxtaposition against traditional and modern features.
