Tiles expert Edwards Slate & Stone reveals the best materials to pair with bluestone for a stunning effect.
MELBOURNE, Australia – Bluestone pavers are an extremely popular choice for Australian renovations and landscaping projects. Their versatility and durability make them suitable for a range of different settings: bathrooms, kitchens, pools, driveways, al fresco entertainment areas, front porches and more. To get the most out of bluestone, tile expert Edwards Slate & Stone recommends choosing a complementary material to pair it with. With a variety of materials that will work well for a range of different indoor and outdoor settings, Edwards Slate & Stone reveals their favourite materials to use alongside bluestone.
According to Melbourne-based Edwards Slate & Stone, Melbourne’s CBD is awash with bluestone. It was used in the construction of some of the city’s oldest buildings – Old Melbourne Gaol, Town Hall, St. Paul’s Cathedral, to name a few – as well as its curbs and footpaths. Its non-slip properties are suited to Melbourne’s rainy winters and its durability is perfect for high-density areas with lots of foot traffic. To this day, many Melbourne homeowners prefer this material for their renovations or landscaping jobs.
For a gorgeous, natural contrast, Edwards Slate & Stone suggests complementing bluestone with exposed bricks. This gives a space a soft, earthy feel and is especially stunning when used on porches and walkways. For a more rugged look, homeowners can opt for concrete pavers alongside their bluestone tiles; this combination offers a more practical, durable setting, which is perfect for outdoor entertaining or barbecue areas, driveways or any other high-traffic spaces. Edwards Slate & Stone explains that wood also pairs beautifully with bluestone, highlighting its raw beauty and creating a breathtaking contrast, particularly in bathrooms and kitchens.
There is a range of ways bluestone can be used and styled to create the home or garden of any homeowner’s dreams, without compromising on quality or durability.
