Semi-precious stone is much more versatile and durable than many people assume. And while it’s typically more expensive than exotic granite slabs, it’s well worth the price for the beauty that it bestows on a room, and for the value it adds to a home. It’s also more attainable, price-wise than one might think.
By going smaller with the project, a homeowner can indulge in the high-end allure of semi-precious stone without breaking the bank. The Granite Place offers a cut-to-size program so homeowners interested in smaller projects don’t need to purchase an entire slab, eliminating an expensive waste of materials. Many customers have used precious stone for coffee tables and bar tops, and precious stone can also add interest to small areas of the home. For instance, an accent of antique blue agate could be embedded within a marble backsplash to elevate it to stunning. Or surrounding a fireplace in dark sodalite or jasper could add elegance to an otherwise dull den.
When viewed as a piece of art, or a feature that sparks conversation, the extra cost to invest in semi-precious stone makes perfect sense, especially if it’s within a homeowner’s budget. For more information on Semi-precious stones, please read our blog.
