Use Stone Pottery Indoors or Outdoors

Carved stone pottery makes an elegant addition, whether inside or outside a home.  Stone pottery has a wide variety of uses and will elevate the look of any architecture or decor in its surroundings.  Stone pottery, such as the selection from Architectural Stone Elements, comes in a wide selection of shapes, sizes and styles to provide you versatility and the ability to seamlessly integrate them into your inside or outside decor.  Carved stone pottery not only adds beauty and functionality to your home, but value as well.

While you may think carved stone pottery is only for outside use, it can be an effective piece of decor inside your home as well.  First of all, nothing looks more high-end and valuable than carved natural stone.  It simply adds elegance, style and uniqueness to any room.  Second, you can put either synthetic or natural plants inside your pottery to bring some green into your home.  While adding synthetic plants can look nice and be low maintenance, adding natural plant to the inside of your home can actually have positive health benefits.  Healthline describes the various health benefits that having natural plants inside your home can have, “Indoor air can be as much as 12 times more polluted than outside air in some areas, due to compounds in paints, furnishings, clothing, and building materials… Research shows that many common houseplants and blooming potted plants can improve your health by helping to fight these pollutants in your home. The ability of plants to remove chemicals from the air is called phytoremediation. A study conducted by Stanley J. Kays at the University of Georgia tested 28 species of common houseplants. The results showed that some ornamental plants can remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from indoor air… NASA findings showed that houseplants were able to remove up to 87 percent of air toxins in a 24-hour period… A study by the University of Agriculture in Norway found that indoor plants can also help fight colds. The research showed that indoor plants decreased coughs, sore throats, fatigue, and other cold-related symptoms by more than 30 percent…. Several independent studies have shown that interior plants can help reduce stress and improve well-being… In a study from Texas A&M University, workers who were in a room with two potted plants and a bouquet of flowers generated 13 percent more ideas than workers in a room with sculptures.”

While carved stone pottery makes a wonderful addition to inside decor, it is an ideal architectural element for outside decor.  When designing a landscape it is important to incorporate both softscape elements (plants, bushes, grass, flowers, etc.) and hardscape elements (patio, pergola, pathways, pillars, handrails, etc.) to keep a balanced look that is aesthetically pleasing. Carved stone pottery can be used purely for decor or as planters.  They can be placed on your patio, along pathways, next to pools, and more for both structure and beauty.  These carved stone planters will add beauty and elegance to your landscape as well as your home.
