Top 5 Benefits of Using Natural Stone

Natural stone has been used since time immemorial for use in construction. Whether they’re used to tile walls or floors, kitchen benchtop slabs or made into bathroom vanities, natural stone looks and works beautifully.  Bluestone, granite, and travertine pavers are similarly popular across Perth.

But why is stone such a timeless and often chosen option? In this article, we’ll introduce you to everything you need to know about natural stone: what it is and what are just some of the many, many benefits of this wonderful material.

Types of Natural Stone

Before we dive into the top reasons to choose stone, it would probably do us all good to summarise the most common and popular types of stone used in Perth and across Australia.


Granite is known for its durability and density. Its iconic granular aesthetic is very visually appealing.


Marble stone is classic and elegant in look with its iconic veining and cloudy patterns.


Limestone has a unique visual style due to being a sedimentary rock that evokes earthy tones. If you’re interested in laying some limestone blocks, make sure you read our blog article on how to lay limestone blocks first.


Another sedimentary rock, travertine, has a porous texture and complex natural pits. If you’d like to read more about Travertine pavers, check out our blog article on Travertine or browse our Travertine Stone Cladding products!


Slate is another durable and highly dense stone that’s used in all sorts of construction applications, especially for those looking for sleek, minimalist visual styles.


Bluestone, a form of sandstone, offers a unique and smooth visual aesthetic caused by its unique formation process of erosion and deposition. Read more in our Blog article about Bluestone pavers and check out our range of Natural Stone Pavers!


Top Reasons to Choose Natural Stone

1. Sustainable and Natural

Natural stone is quarried directly from the ground and then cut down into slabs for transport and use. Due to the limited amount of manufacturing and processing that goes into it, it’s a rather sustainable and natural option for construction material. No chemicals are used in natural stone production either, so there is minimal environmental impact.

2. Timeless Appearance

Stone is classic for many reasons and in many ways, not least of which is its timeless appearance. Natural stone can be used to complement any interior design aesthetic, any style of home and house, and any personal preference.

Timeless in every way, incorporating stone in your home is a decision you won’t regret. The stone aesthetic doesn’t wax and wane with contemporary fashion, so it won’t look dated.

Plus, from a financial perspective, due to its timeless nature, natural stone is bound to add value to your home in the event that you want to resell it down the line.

3. Cost Effective

Natural stone being labelled as cost-effective might surprise some people. After all, stone is not the cheapest of construction materials to use in and around your home. However, if you consider the durability and longevity of hardy stone compared to those cheaper materials, the long-term cost-effectiveness is clear as day.

4. Easy to Maintain & Durability

Natural stone, as mentioned before, is highly durable. This is especially important in areas of the home prone to high levels of activity and foot traffic.

Stone is also super easy to maintain with just a little bit of cleaning and care. Urgent attention to spills and stains can ensure your stone looks and lasts for long into the future.

5. Different Design Styles and Finishes

Classic bluestone pavers are uniquely sleek and minimalist in design… The iconic aesthetic of travertine pavers are earthy tones and deep textures… And so on… However, this doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. Natural stone, in all of its types and forms, comes in a wide range of colours, shades, designs and styles. If you’re looking for granite pavers or even marble slabs, there’s bound to be the perfect visual style to suit your preferences.

Moreover, because the stone is quarried directly out of the ground and isn’t manufactured in a factory, each and every slab is unique and one-of-a-kind. This gives you the added benefit of having a completely original-looking stone that is quite unlike any other anywhere else in the world.
