Cast Stone Columns in Custom Built Homes

One of the most elaborate features that can be found in many homes is stone accents. This architectural feature can be seen on the interior as well as the exterior part of the house. Accenting objects with stone is an art in order to enhance the appearance of a surface that looks dull, so as to improve the aesthetics of the house.

Today, cast stone columns are a popular trend especially in large houses. Although popular in columns, stone accents can also be applied in doors, windows, veneers and other places of the house that need improvement. These are usually done by architectural companies such as Marvelous Marble Design Inc.

Stone Accents in Columns

Stones used for accentuating columns are either made of marble or limestone. This feature brings an old charm to the interiors of the house to make it look Greco-Roman inspired.

Stone Accents in Fireplaces

Another common attraction in houses is the stone-accentuated fireplace. Stones used are either granite, marble, river stones, or limestone. The style can be based in Mediterranean, Tuscan and Victorian. Most often, stones in fireplaces are carved by hand.

Stone Accents in Stairs and Patios

Stones installed in patios and stairs must be easy to clean, given that they are always stepped on. They are often made out of granite, marble, sandstone and limestone. These are all low-maintenance stones and are either cast or cured.

Stone Accents in Windows and Arches

Your ordinary window can be transformed into a fancier one by installing keystone on the arches and its surroundings.
