We’ve all done it. We look around the house and are bored of what we see. We think to ourselves certain rooms or aspects of our home just aren’t working anymore. This is usually around the time the husband hears those dreaded words “I think we should move”. You feel like a new space will give you the new spark, will make you feel refreshed. Realistically, we can’t always move when we feel we want something new. Thankfully for us we have an endless list of options to make any space feel brand new and bring back that feeling when you first moved into your home.
Kodiak Mountain Stone is always here to help with any project we can. Often you could think of our products as something for the exterior of your home or a fireplace surround and while those can be just the thing to make you fall more in love with your home and give it that curb appeal that is just the beginning of the endless design possibilities. Through the years we have enjoyed watching our clients come up with countless creative ideas on how to improve the esthetics of their homes. If you’re at a standstill on what to do. You have come to the right place. Below is a list of rooms and some great ideas on how incorporate our products into your design.
Bedroom – Ah the sanctuary! If you’re into the country/rustic look a Craft Board Form headboard from the Creative Mines lines would be stunning. You could also do a feature wall in one of our gorgeous stacked stone profiles.
Bathroom– For a room you spend so much time it, it should be appealing to the eye. We have a ton of products that would work great for a small feature wall behind a tub. This would be ideal for giving your home that spa like feel. You could even add shelving to hold candles or other products.
Kitchen – As the one room that everyone gathers in. You want there to be something that stands out. Brick is all the rage right now. If you’re looking for a more traditional look you could opt for a General Shale product or you could go for the more modern look with the new Creative Mines Craft Paint Grade Brick which you have the freedom to paint any color.
Bar– The bar is a great place to do an eye catching full height back splash. You could add in shelving for all your favorite beverages and also a wine rack for your best bottles. Another great idea for this space would be to use our stone on the bar itself bring the whole look together.
Living Room – Normally this is where you do a fireplace. We have had tons of clients take it a step further and do a feature wall. A great product for this is Creative Mines Split Modular.
Foyer – Having a stacked stone hug a stair case gives you a looking nothing else quite can. It sets the design up for the entire home and bring a fluency to any look you’re trying to achieve.
Another upside to renovations…
We all know what renovations can do to how you feel about home. How it can be the focus of all your future dinner parties and make your family want to always spend the holidays at your house but another upside is two very big very important words. Resale Value… a small investment can come back in spades when you’re ready to sell. Our clients love our products for that reason. On one alone, a client of ours told us he invested five hundred dollars to do a beautiful fireplace. When he sold his home it added five thousand dollars to the value of his home! How can you wrong?
You can also visit the Kodiak Mountain Stone Visualizer HERE as you are planning your renovation. It allows you to upload photos of your own project and see what stone will look like in different areas and in different styles or colors.
