Looking for the latest hot trends for your next home improvement or home building project? Here’s some advice from the experts at Charles Luck Stone Center’s Leesburg Yard, located at 43085 Builders Lane in Ashburn. Their seven-acre facility is now open and stocks a wide variety and quantity of stone products, as well as an expanded line of tools and accessory items used on building jobs by masons, contractors and landscapers.
Bringing the outdoors inside, and the indoors outside
Homeowners want to make outdoor spaces (decking, patios, pool areas, terraces, gardens, etc.) more comfortable, while also making their indoor spaces more integrated with the outdoor environment. The classic beauty of natural stone lends texture, detail and dimension that is unmatched by any other building material.
Natural stone veneers
A natural thin stone veneer dramatically transforms a home’s exterior from ho-hum to the height of elegance. CLSC’s master-cut products are designed for easy installation and provide the incomparable look of solid stone.
Patios and Pathways
Want to soak up some rays? Bask outside on a new patio or garden pathway. CLSC’s extensive portfolio of natural flagstones and paving materials create a strong sense of place, whether it’s a very formal look or a more rugged, organic design.
Fireplaces and Firepits
A nature-made product like stone anchors a project to its surroundings unlike any other, bringing architectural meaning to every home feature. Indoor fireplaces and outdoor firepits become a canvas to create a masterpiece of creative expression.
The Linear Look
Today’s design trends lean toward a more linear look with the stone being cut and laid horizontally (as opposed to mosaic or staggered) for a more natural, clean and modern craftsmanship.
