If you ever look closely at homes you like, you will invariably notice that their owners spent a considerable amount of energy on both interior and exterior design elements. One of the most noticeable aspects of exterior design in New Jersey is landscaping. Another is often more subtle than the green elements of landscaping but equally as important: paving. Ideally, the flagstone paving used in all walkways, walls, and surfaces should be aesthetically pleasing on its own and harmoniously integrated with the rest of your home’s design.
Flagstone is often associated mostly with exterior design elements such as the ways old crofter homes can be entirely rendered with flagstone. However, in New Jersey, more and more homeowners are taking their cue from expert designers and incorporating flagstone into other areas of their home. Flagstone can be used in contemporary home design as well as classical exterior landscaping. Flagstones can be used to add panache to exterior walls, create visual borders between different spaces or areas of your exterior space, and also be used as an exterior or interior wall surface covering.
In fact, some of the most characterful uses of flagstone in New Jersey is a wall covering. Flagstone adds texture, color, and protection to your interior and exterior walls. Using flagstone can add separation between the upper and lower parts of a bar area, for example. Alternatively, you can use flagstone on your hearth and fireplace area, as well as your chimney.
Flagstone adds value to your home, making it a great investment for New Jersey homeowners. Using flagstone helps your home stand out from the others on your block, while also showing that you care about how your entire neighborhood looks. Flagstone adds aesthetic appeal to your home and gardens.
