A perfect finish
Using only the finest materials, Duke Stone guarantees a second-to-none service that focuses on you and your home.
Duke Stone produce beautiful bespoke items for the home and garden from its workshop on the Lizard peninsula. The experienced team of professional stonemasons can create everything, from incredible kitchen worktops and vanities for the bathroom, to fireplaces, hearths and wonderful sculptures and are happy to deliver nationwide.
“In vogue at the moment, is the use of engineered stone for a sleek, contemporary look that’s completely versatile…”
The team at Duke Stone have a genuine passion for stone, with hundreds of granite and quartz slabs in stock, meaning you can choose the right piece to fit your project perfectly.
One feature of natural stone is that each piece is unique, with its own texture, pattern and hue that can change fluidly in the light. Mixing stone with other natural material produces beautiful results, with subtle differences in texture and finish. What’s more, stone is naturally hardwearing, and heat resistant too! Indeed, natural stone is perfect if you’re looking for a real statement piece to complete a room, a fantastic example being a uniquely stunning handcrafted sink made from serpentine stone, found locally on the Lizard.
In vogue at the moment, is the use of engineered stone for a sleek, contemporary look that’s completely versatile. Engineered stone is generally made up of more than 90% quartz, making it extraordinarily hardwearing and resilient. It’s also non-porous, so highly resistant to staining, and it’s available in a range of finishes, including polished, suede, leathered and honed. All these qualities combine to make it the ideal surface for kitchen worktops and bathrooms. The Duke Stone range includes integrated sinks, which match the colour of your work surface with no seams and no overhangs!
Impressively, Duke Stone is equally adept in enhancing cottages as they are period homes and commercial projects, so if you want to make a real statement in your home – be it contemporary or traditional – look out for the team at the Cornwall Home Improvement & Self Build Show on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October. Alternatively, if you can’t make it to the show, be sure to contact the office or, better still, pay a visit to the workshop at Cury Cross Lanes just outside Helston and speak to a member of the friendly and knowledgeable team about how you can incorporate one of a number of stunning stone materials into your dream home.
Duke Stone of Cornwall is the headline sponsor at the Cornwall Home Improvement and Self Build Show from 6th to 7th October. To discuss your home’s unique requirements, why not meet the team there?
