6 Ways Fusion Stones Can Add Character to Your Home


Home improvements come in many shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common, they are designed to provide a more comfortable living space. The exterior of the property is what people see first, and if first impressions count, then one needs to give the home some character. Stone is a fantastic material, as natural as there is, and yet it is timeless. Here are some good ideas to make the home stand out in the crowd.


  1. Transform pathways and terraces with natural stone pavers from Mataka, a company that has been providing a range of high quality stone products for more than three decades. There are a range of finishes, and indeed, types of stone, with a variation in colours and patterns, and with qualified stonemasons handling the installation, one can be sure of a first class job.
  2. For a superb interior floor, travertine is the perfect material, and with floor tiles, one can have a stunning finish that is both durable and long lasting. One of the main advantages of travertine is that it remains cool, which will help keep the temperature down during the hot summer months.
  3. A novel way to add character to the home is stone wall tiles, which are easily screwed into place and require no maintenance, while giving that smooth sleek look that only comes with real stone. Once fitted, they will remain in pristine condition for many years, and with ancient buildings like the Colosseum in Italy that were constructed entirely from travertine, one can be sure the finish will last forever!
  4. If one has a pool, why not have stone pavers for the surround? With bevelled pool copers for the edges and steps, the finish is ideal, and travertine is very cool underfoot, even on the hottest of days. Terraced areas also benefit from natural stone pavers, so consider matching the patio and pool areas for a uniformed look to the garden.
  5. Bored with the exterior painted surface of the home? Stone cladding is an ideal way to totally change the ambience, and with a range of colours and finishes, one could even mix and match, for real character.
  6. Transform that ageing driveway that always manages to sprout weeds by having the area stone paved. A timeless design that will always be in tip top condition, whatever the weather. The range of colours and finishes allows one to create the perfect ambience, and with expert installation, the driveway will be a reflection of the property for many years to come.

Stone cladding or paving requires the right installation, so make sure the company is established, and has experience in laying stone in residential properties. Stone is one of the best materials to use for interior and exterior surfaces, and with a wide range of colours and patterns, there is something to suit every environment.
