Interior or exterior stone work lends a unique look to any home. Some ideas for adding stone accents to your home are: surrounding your fireplace and adjoining wall with stone for that "lodge" look , facing the front of the kitchen island in a stone which compliments the existing countertops, using flagstone for flooring instead of tile, and in the bath around the shower and Jacuzzi. The most natural place for stone work is surrounding a pool. Combined with a  waterfall and lush landscaping the stone work helps to create that "resort" atmosphere that is so inviting. Even a simple flagstone walkway is a useful and economical way to add to the appeal of the exterior of the home.
