Many different types of rocks are popular in home décor. These natural pieces can be found everywhere, from the ceiling all the way to the floor. Investing in granite slab flooring will allow you to take advantage of the natural beauty throughout your home. Make sure your granite slab floors stay in great shape by following these maintenance tips:
Sweep Up Dirt and Debris
Dirt that collects on your shoes can easily find its way into your home and onto your granite slab floors. If you continue to walk on sand, dirt, and debris, they may get crushed up and cause a grounding reaction that takes shine away from your flooring. Avoid this problem by regularly sweeping the floor to remove dirt and debris. You can also ask family members and friends to remove their shoes before walking around the house or certain parts of it.
Use the Right Cleaning Products
Sweeping is important for removing dirt and debris, but it may not remove all of the foreign drops that find their way to your floor. When your granite slabs require a deeper cleaning, it is a good idea to do a light mopping of the area. Get your mop damp and avoid using too much water as it can easily be absorbed into the grout. Invest in granite-friendly cleansers that can remove all dirt and stains without affecting the color or integrity of your granite slabs.
Handle Spills Immediately
One of the easiest ways to keep your granite flooring clean is to take care of spills before they can turn into stains. If a family member or guest spills a beverage on the floor, use a soft cloth to absorb the liquid immediately. It is also a good idea to gently sweep or mop after cleaning up a spill in case any crumbs or debris get left behind.

The kitchen is where the family gathers to eat, share conversations, and great memories. This room should be attractive and functional to create the perfect atmosphere. If your kitchen’s atmosphere is lacking in either of these areas, it is a good idea to upgrade the space by choosing a new countertop.
Granite countertops are popular among many homeowners. This rock offers a natural beauty that comes in many different colors and with many different designs. Make the most of your investment by choosing a countertop that works well with your kitchen cabinets. Look for granite slabs with a similar color to your kitchen cabinets for a simple and solitary look. Create a more interesting kitchen by choosing a granite slab with a contrasting color.

It is never too early to start making plans for next year’s garden! Make the most of your beautiful backyard space by building a path that will guide you along the way and enhance the aesthetic quality of this area. Da Vinci Marble offers a variety of gorgeous decorative stones, allowing you to create the perfect garden path for your space:
Mark the Path
Use wooden stakes or yard-friendly paint to create a simple outline of your garden path. Have family members help you decide how long and wide the path should be by walking around your garden together. Figure out where you will need to walk as well as which parts of the garden offer the most beauty. Mark the outline of your path on the ground to use as a guide for the decorative stones.
Find Your Decorative Stones
Marking your garden path will allow you to determine how much space you have to cover. Once this step is complete, use a tape measure to carefully measure both the length and width of your planned path. Keep this information with you when start your online search for the perfect decorative stones. Determine what type of décor scheme or atmosphere you want to create and look for stones that show off this style through color, texture, and patterns.
Put Your Stones in Place
Use the markings you created earlier to guide you when removing the sod. You may need to rent professional tools in order to properly remove the sod from your yard. Use a shovel and wheelbarrow to remove dirt from the path and transport it to a different part of your garden. Once the area is prepared, you can start placing your decorative stones in the newly emptied space. Try a simple and traditional path by keeping your stones in a line or pattern, or create a truly unique path by placing decorative stones in random spots along the path.

A tile mosaic can give a room a certain vibrancy that is difficult to achieve through other decorative means. With so many types of tile and so many different options for the placement of a tile mosaic, settling on a single idea is often the hardest part of the tile mosaic design process.
To help you get started, think about how your personality or that of your home could best be reflected in a tile mosaic. Consider also how prominent you want your mosaic to be, as this can help you decide between a kitchen or bathroom backsplash, a table mosaic, and a large wall mosaic. Next, draft a rough sketch and decide what sort of color scheme is most appropriate for your mosaic.
Once you have figured out what you want your tile mosaic to look like, it is time to shop for supplies.
