Trends in kitchen materials change every year and it can be hard to keep pace with the latest fashions. One way to ensure your surfaces won't date is by choosing a material that has stood the test of time for thousands of years.

Limestone and marble have been symbols of permanence and good taste since ancient times, says Teddy Boughen, marketing executive of natural stone importer Iberian Artisans.

"Iberian Artisans imports marble and limestone direct from the Iberian Peninsula, at the south eastern tip of Europe," says Boughen. "This stretch of the Spanish-Portugese coast has long been a source of up-market masonry for the well-appointed homes of Europe."

The rich, varied tones of marble and limestone are suitable for kitchen bench surfaces, floors and walls. These versatile surfaces are also suitable for fire surrounds, bathrooms and outdoor surfaces, such as garden paths and pool surrounds.

"Iberian Artisans' team of experienced craftspeople provides precision masonry services for customers," says Boughen. "These range from cutting steps to creating floors, walls and intricate design features.
