“Don’t judge us by our rough exterior – we are beautiful on the inside too” – Alamo Stone Company

Stone is an excellent & widely popular choice for exterior cladding & flooring. The natural durability, color consistency & uniqueness allows for endless design options. For all of these reasons & more, bringing stone INSIDE is a growing trend.

With the advancements in technology, most natural stone can be cut into any shape, thickness, size & pattern with a variety of finishes and edges, making natural stone a perfect option for flooring, counter tops, fireplace surrounds, range hoods, stair treads, sinks, and of course, wall cladding.

As the interest & demand for outdoor living increases, many homeowners desire a natural flow from the home’s interior to exterior spaces. Natural stone allows the same product/stone/color to be used in multiple applications. Maintain the same color, but change the finish or pattern. For example – your interior flooring could be a small hexagon version of your larger, rectangular exterior pavers.  Incorporate the same stone, with a honed finish on a counter top or sink and you seamlessly created a unified design concept throughout your home.

Design an environment beyond your imagination with the elegant beauty & endless options of natural stone.

Think Thin Brick

The growing popularity of farmhouse design is shedding new light on thin brick. Made from real clay brick that has been cut thin, thin brick is easily incorporated into any space. Because it is so lightweight, there is no concern about load bearing walls or reinforced sub-floors.

Designers love the personality & flexibility that thin brick provides. One of the main advantages of thin brick is its versatility. Thin brick allows you to use the same brick in both a full or thin capacity, but always with the appearance of a full brick. For example, while an indoor fireplace can feature full or thin brick, a back splash most definitely requires a thin brick, in place of a ceramic or porcelain tile. Some homeowners wish to match exterior brick with interior features, but don’t want a full brick inside. As thin brick is cut from a full brick, matching the two is effortlessly impeccable.

As you can see, thin brick isn’t just for fireplace surrounds. The applications are endless – from back splashes, accent walls, tub surrounds, base of an island or bar, or even as an accent in the back of shelving. Where do you want a thin brick accent?

Outdoor cooking is no longer limited to a basic grill & bag of charcoal. Americans have taken backyard cooking and dining to a whole new level. Outdoor kitchens are becoming increasingly functional and more elaborate with cooking islands, pizza ovens, refrigerators and even the kitchen sink.

Hungry homeowners are looking beyond the grill & smoker, desiring full outdoor kitchens with features that add convenience and luxury such as counter space, trash bins, ice chests, & cabinetry. Outdoor spaces are becoming more organized, reducing trips back & forth into the house & indoor kitchen.

Wall blocks come in a variety of sizes, styles & colors that coordinate perfectly with pavers & wood accents. Most offer such versatility they can be installed to create a custom outdoor space.

As pictured below, the most common additions to today’s outdoor kitchens are counter space/work space with sinks, built-in grill stations,  stove top burners, as well as space for a ceramic grill or charcoal smoker.

Another growing trend is the incorporation of warming features into outdoor spaces.  Products that lend physical and ambient warmth are in high demand, such as fireplaces & fire pits.

Fire features provide heat and light, allowing you to use your deck later into the evening and into the year, while creating an inviting atmosphere. Great focal points, fire pits and fireplaces also provide natural gathering spots for conversation & of course, s’mores!
