When you’re looking to add a truly distinct and unique beauty to a space, then there are few things that can do it as well as natural materials. Stone stands out from the rest for its practical qualities, as well as its aesthetic, and few catch the eye quite as effectively as translucent stone. Here, we’re going to look at a range of ways you can use stone in interiors, adding a unique touch to the design of your space.
What is translucent stone?
As the name implies, translucent stone is a kind of natural stone that allows light to be transmitted through it to some degree. It can be made of translucent gemstones, using semi-precious stones that are cut with precision and assembled by hand. Translucent stone is often used in combination with backlighting, allowing for a wondrous display of colour.
Best ways to use translucent stone
You need never worry about having a boring room, whether it’s an office, retail or hospitality business space, or even your own home ever again. Translucent stone can make for an excellent choice for a feature wall in any room, naturally drawing the eye thanks to its mesmerizing combination of colour and light. The luxurious nature of the semi-precious gemstones in these walls, including agate, amethyst, and quartz, adds an air of opulence to any space.
Bar tops and countertops
When you choose a workspace, you want to ensure that your practical needs are met as well as your stylistic demands. With minimalist styles falling a little out of favour in recent years, durable natural stones such as the quartz used in many of our translucent stone offerings are becoming a lot more popular. Aside from their beauty, these surfaces are known for being durable, long-lasting, heat-resistant, and very easy to maintain.
The same qualities that make translucent stone so effective for worktops also make it just as good for backsplashes, as well. Aside from being durable and easy to keep in good condition, these translucent stone panels can be treated to ensure that they are waterproof. A colourful backsplash can offer excellent contrast to a more minimalist workspace, allowing for a flash of luxurious lighting.
You can truly dazzle anyone who sets foot in your space by welcoming them with an array of colours from beneath their very feet when they arrive. Translucent flooring using composite gemstone panels can give any space a truly unique aesthetic, with a range of bold colour choices available. It works well as flooring due to its range of qualities, including durability, impact strength, slip resistance, and porosity, offering the grip, reliability and toughness you would expect from flooring.
The wide variety of colours available in our translucent stone panels can allow you to add a spa-like luxury to your bathroom, whether you opt for something lighter and natural feeling, or something more mystical and exotic. Translucent stone’s durability, non-slip qualities, and waterproof options can make it a very practical choice for any bathroom.
Many of the qualities that make translucent stone such a natural choice for the bathroom make it just as good for kitchens, as well. It’s easy to clean up spills, and you don’t have to worry about damaging it too easily during the hustle and bustle of the day when you’re cooking and preparing food, thanks to its sturdiness. What’s more, translucent stone is heat-resistant, as well, which can be vital in a space with so many hot cooking implements.
In reception areas
If you want to make a truly breathtaking first impression on visitors to your business, translucent stone can do just that. Aesthetically, these gemstone compositions carry all of the connotations of luxury that you might want your brand to be associated with and, with a little backlighting, can offer a truly distinct look to your business.
