Stones have accompanied civilizations for years in the most diverse types of buildings and always add value to an environment, whether it is internal or external. A stone is able to transmit a unique characteristic to any space or product, with harmony and great economic value.
From the smallest object, such as the furniture that makes up a house or a square, to the largest buildings, stones are always present. They guarantee the environment the beauty of a natural product and that, with its different finishes and colors, achieves surprising results. Its shapes, colors and uses are capable of turning any dream into reality.

Why should you use stone in your construction?
In 2021, some trends in the natural stone segment stand out and deserve special attention to bring new projects to life.

In any type of work, the cost of maintenance is a determining factor. When one not only thinks about the project, but also understands that durability is essential, natural stones stand out compared to other materials.

A good example is the use of granite. Its high resistance to the impacts and effects of weather exposure gives it incomparable prominence in the market.
2 – Positive energy
Given so many adversities that we face in the current world, having environments that offer positive energy means transforming houses into homes and spaces into environments.
3 – Connection with nature using stone
Nothing replaces a natural stone. Only it can give a project the real presence of nature and with exclusivity, since no stone has the same pattern, which makes the environment unique, with beauty and history.
4 – High brightness indoors
When we think about indoor environments and their constant use, there is nothing better than having stones that allow a high-gloss finish combined with a stunning look. The shine conveys the feeling of cleanliness and hygiene, in addition to providing ease at the time of cleaning, which is so necessary today in our daily lives.
5 – Harmony
The human being is constantly seeking balance and enjoying this sensation in outdoor or indoor environments is to offer more than a work, it is to deliver comfort, peace and serenity.
6- Space esthetics
Beauty is the key. A beautiful environment makes people feel more comfortable and want to stay longer. Esthetics is capable of arousing an inner joy and unique feeling of well-being.
7 – Sustainability
Society is increasingly concerned with sustainability and to count on a group such as Spatium Petra, which has in its production lines actions that guarantee sustainable production, means to convey security at the time of purchase. In addition, stones can provide greater durability and, in the long run, demand lower maintenance or replacement costs.

Open spaces, which integrate environments and connect people, are one of the main trends for this year. The idea is to create a larger and multipurpose environment.
9 – Colors and textures
When it comes to walls, the trend for 2021 is colors and textures. 3D coatings using stones demonstrate sophisticated environments and can provide rustic and modern solutions to the environments.
10 – Low absorption surfaces
Currently, the focus is on working with materials that prevent the proliferation of viruses and bacteria and this is possible through specific treatments that give the material a low absorption of residue.
