The stones of the stone coverings, let’s discover them together.

In addition to the type of composition of the stone, more or less porous, the stones are essentially distinguished by the color that characterizes them. In fact, it must be borne in mind that stones such as the Lecce stone, the yellow carparoor the antiqued taurine stone have very delicate shades, ranging from latte macchiato to straw yellow. They are soft stone coverings, which give class and delicacy to the environment and are ideal for both a modern home and for old farmhouses and farmhouses.

Among the stone coverings, the best known are certainly the Lecce stone, today known as “the gentle stone” due to its malleability and the ease with which it can be worked. It is a porous stone, extracted from the open-air quarries of Lecce and is undoubtedly the stone that has made the history of Salento, especially since it was chosen as the protagonist of the Lecce Baroque in the seventeenth century. Precious inlays and embroideries have been made on her that still decorate churches such as the Basilica of Santa Croce in Lecce and palaces of the most important historical centers of Salento, from Lecce, passing through Nardò, Gallipoli, up to Capo di Leuca. .

Stone claddings such as tuff or red carparo are chosen to give a more rustic touch, to which the reddish color of the stones certainly contributes in an important way. They are often used for country houses or for taverns with built-in kitchens that make the atmosphere familiar and welcoming.

Characteristics and uses of stone coverings.

Stones easily withstand any type of temperature and this makes them suitable for both indoor and indoor environments.

The installation takes place through the preparation of a base, usually concrete or plasterboard. The stone cladding is first glued with tile mortar and then the joints are leveled with sand and cement.

They are stone coverings that have a certain stability and safety, especially for this reason we see them used in environments such as public gardens, swimming pools, sports centers.

Stone coverings are essentially of two types:

– Regular stones, square or rectangular, ideal for those looking for an elegant and refined style;
– Irregular stones, which give the environment a much more rustic style but also able to express the identity of those who wanted it.

Main uses and installation of stones.

Stones are often chosen for the construction of bio-fireplaces and masonry kitchens, depending on the color and type of stone that is chosen, it is decided whether to give it a more refined and modern character or a more rustic one.

Masonry kitchens enjoy a charm that never sets, also because they are customizable and can always be made to measure. The ideal, if you want to add an extra touch, is to accompany them with an antiqued taurine stone floorthat gives the environment the atmosphere of the Salento farms.

Stone cladding is a resistant and versatile material, which is also why it can be chosen for both interiors and exteriors.

Implementation is very simple but always requires the professionalism that Pietra Taurina is able to offer.

This type of stone cladding is made with stone planks, which can vary in shape and color and are therefore ideal for every type of taste. The most important difference in this case concerns the thickness of the planks, which can vary from one to twenty centimeters, with a relative variation in price but also in the strength of the covering itself.
