Maximum Nice Home with Natural Stone

Natural stone as one of the park is a complementary element to add aesthetic value. Not only the park, inside any building you can apply pretty natural stone structure.

Natural stone is one element that can make your home look more natural. Choice of form and pattern vary, depending what impression you want to highlight. The choice of natural stones that include marble, granite, stone temples, limestone, and andesite stone.

Although some people consider natural stone only as a supplement, but who would have thought natural stone when applied to the dwelling, not only gained an impression of nature. Moreover, the composition of natural stone, arranged in such a way could be one of the media that serves as a FocalPoint in the house.

According to architect Briyan Talaosa, the impression that arise when applied to natural stone dwelling or building is homey and comfortable. Therefore, the characters tend to be strong natural stone and rough. Natural stone can be used as a medium to make a particular spot as the focal point.

Nevertheless, not necessarily when applying it to the shelter, that impression can be directly obtained. All depends on how you apply them.
In principle, Briyan mentioned, the preparation and use of natural stone in buildings other than as an accent in nature beautify, as well as alternative reinforcing the character of the building. To that end, the basic principles which normally must be considered in applying the natural stone is the pattern formulation.

There are two ways of developing documents. Having determined the field to be "patched" natural stone and determine the arrangement, you still have to consider how to put natural stone, both for wall and floor. "If you choose a particular stone, there is a way of assembly is prepared as set masonry commonly known as bundles of betel leaves, some are affixed such as installing ceramic wall," said Briyan.

Regarding the pattern of assembly, continued Briyan, can vary considerably, depending on the shape or size of natural stone itself. If a rectangular shape, it will vary with the cube-shaped pattern. Moreover, irregular shape, such as on flat limestone, but tend to be wide.

For indoor or outdoor applications, natural stone is not too specific distinction. What is clear, Briyan say, all natural stone can be used for indoor or outdoor. Only, that differentiate, if applied outside of natural stone, there is usually a special treatment on the coating's. In a sense, for finishing selected in nature than can withstand the inhospitable weather conditions, also is an antifungal coating (for a particular type).

Moreover, every thing in direct contact with nature if not anxious to arise unwanted effects, special treatment should be performed in order to extend the life of the material itself.

"In the natural stone we used to do coating or plating with a kind of liquid paint. There are shiny or glossy effect, there is a natural effect as it is, and in particular rock type is that given a black or dark-colored coating. All depends on the composition we want to create, "said Briyan.

While natural stone is in the house usually associated with the design theme. "So, composition and color of stone that we choose to apply on or residential design should go on being a harmonious and beautiful composition," he said.

For example, call Briyan, the minimalist theme using natural stones that tend to pattern size is not in the form of neat or disheveled, such as limestone. Can also use andesite stone in a minimalist theme with a method prepared betel or stones that tend palimanan we know as the ornament on the theme of Mediterranean occupancy.

Actually the use of natural stone material can we make our point and as an application on a specific design theme. Then, the surface of how good stone for exposed?

Briyan said, all the natural stones of various colors and characters materials, from the most refined to the rough surface, all worthy displayed or exposed.

"What is clear, in my opinion, if we are choosing natural stone as a medium of expression on occupancy, we should still appreciate it as a natural stone 'honest' without having to be painted with other colors," he said.

Take the example of marble or granite, limestone or stone temples or many other rocks that are common, you should let the character of the stone that becomes the color or texture on the walls of the rock fill or even a wall of building facades in the room.
