Is Onyx The Answer?

When choosing to revamp your home or business, you’ll have heard about the stunning effects natural stone has. Onyx is an incredibly popular option, but before deciding it’s the answer to your renovation woes, you’ll need to know if it matches your needs.

We’ve put together the key features of this material, so you can determine if it’s the right choice for you.

Aesthetics

Onyx isn’t just attractive to look at. All pieces have a distinct appearance from one another, meaning your interior will be entirely original, as well as beautiful.

If you shine a light on it, the material will sparkle with a dazzling backlighting impact. This is helped by each slab having its own assortment of colours within it, producing a magnetising shimmer.

Options

Onyx can be used in any renovation – whether you need it for kitchen worktops, tiles, cladding, or bathroom tops. So, if you’re redoing the interiors of multiple rooms, they’ll follow the same theme whilst staying unique.
The stone also lets you take your pick of the colour to suit you, with a wide spectrum of shades on offer, including Afghan Green and Light Pink. This will help to create an even more individual and stunning look for your interior.

Durability

Onyx is a particularly popular choice when renovating as it’s a tough material. It’ll last the test of time, so there won’t be a need to revamp your interior again anytime soon.

The stone does require regular maintenance, however, as it’s prone to scratches and stains. Thankfully, you can apply a sealant to give it an additional layer of protection. For further longevity in a kitchen environment, ensure you use chopping boards when cutting with knives, and heat pads under warm pans and pots.

Cost

As onyx is an incredibly rare stone, you’ll spend more on it than you would with materials like hard wood. But cheaper materials will damage easier, and you wouldn’t get the variety of benefits that onyx offers.

Now you’re aware of all there is to know about this striking material, you can decide whether it’s the right choice to create charm in your home or business. If onyx is your answer, then RC Coppin can assist.
