If you own a home but have not made use of limestone, then you are missing out on the perks of using this natural stone. There are actually a variety of different ways that you can make use of limestone in and around your home. If you are interested in improving your home and exploring this great natural stone material at the same time, consider the ideas below.

Kitchen Counters

When looking into natural stone counters, you might find yourself looking into granite or marble. However, there are other exciting natural stone options out there that you can try too. For example, limestone is a beautiful, heat-resistant kitchen countertop option that isn't quite as cold and hard as some other natural stone countertop options. Just be aware that limestone counters can stain if you aren't careful. If you have them sealed with acrylic and if you clean them regularly, however, you don't have to worry about staining being an issue.

Bathroom Countertops

Not only is limestone a good option for kitchen countertops, but it is also a great option for bathroom countertops, too. It won't be damaged by curling irons and other hot styling tools, and it can make your bathroom look great. Plus, as long as it is sealed, the limestone should be easy to clean.

Fireplace Surrounds

If you are looking to spruce up your fireplace, or if you are in the process of installing a new fireplace, then you might be looking to build the perfect fireplace surround. 

Brick is a popular choice for this, of course, but you might be hoping to do something different. Luckily, limestone is quite effective when used for this purpose. It can also allow you to give your fireplace area a unique and classy look. You can keep it simple, or you can have limestone carved into a decorative design that will really help your fireplace stand out.


If you have never seen limestone floor tiles, you are missing out on a beautiful flooring option that can be used in various areas of your home. Limestone flooring that matches the limestone countertops in your bathroom could look stunning. Limestone can help you create a dramatic and beautiful foyer or entryway, or it might look perfect in a formal dining room.

If you haven't yet implemented limestone in your home, consider giving it a try in the ways above and more.
