Although masonry is a timeless choice when designing a new structure, key trends have been identified that elevate a project to new standards. Stay on trend with these styles for 2019!
Modern designs with sleek finished are a key when deciding on your masonry block. Smooth, honed and polished blocks provide a blank canvas for designing
spaces and also enable you to develop spaces that evoke a sense of harmony and Zen. In contrast, the use of different textures can against a smooth
surface create a point of interest. Try mixing it up and making a feature or two!
Light colours with natural tones, provide the perfect backdrop to any design. Light colours can make spaces look larger and ensure spaces can have
versatile uses. Combined with natural elements, including stone and wood, light tones help create a cosy, warm, and friendly environment.

where traditionally they have been designed to be minimalist spaces. The introduction of stone and contracting masonry has enabled for natural
tones and spaces that exuberate warmth and cosy atmospheres.

lends itself to a modern style, however, is a versatile design choice which would benefit an array of design styles.
