Renovation plans in 2020? Want an update for your home? Maybe that includes a new kitchen and we are happy to give you some extra inspiration. A fixed value in a stylish and timeless kitchen design is the use of natural stone. This material will only become more beautiful over the years, is easy to maintain and is very strong so you don't have to worry about it during all your culinary experiments.
The kitchen is one of the most used spaces in a house, especially when it is used both for cooking and eating. Moreover, if you like standing at the stove just as much as you like sliding your feet under the table, then a comfortable and practical room is of great importance. Imagicasa went to get some tips and tricks at natural stone company Beltrami, where they know what the ideal kitchen looks like.
Durable and strong
A kitchen renovation is not something you venture into every two years, or even after five or ten years. It is a much more drastic change than, for example, buying a new dining table or sofa. You want the design to be timeless and of a very high, durable quality. Natural stone is the perfect solution because it is resistant to stains, acids, moisture, heat and scratches. The material only gets more beautiful over the years and it is also extremely versatile. In addition to a natural stone worktop, you can also choose a table, mudguard and even a floor made of the same material for an elegant whole.

Thanks to the numerous finishes, types and colours, there are so many possibilities for a creative design that is 100% in line with your personality and lifestyle. Granite is considered to be the 'safest' choice for a kitchen because it is the hardest material: indestructible, acid- and scratch-resistant. The uniform shades of grey or black and a smooth polished stone fit very well in a modern interior, while rustic brushed granite comes into its own in a more rural home. Marble is a luxurious material that gives a truly exclusive touch to your kitchen, regardless of style. Larger or smaller veins and the many options in terms of colour ensure that everyone can find the perfect marble. It's slightly less resistant to scratches and acids, but - like bluestone - gets a nice patina with time. Trends
Quartzite looks like marble, but also promises more acid, scratch and heat resistance. It is therefore a trendy alternative. Terrazzo is also still gaining popularity for those who want a kitchen full of character and with a touch of nostalgia.
