Popular Cast Stone Design Trends To Look Out For In 2024

Today cast stone is favoured by many as an affordable, durable alternative to natural stone. Manufactured from precast concrete, cast stone can be set into bricks, pillars and window sills to be used as part of a building’s architectural design. Available in a range of colours and finishes, cast stone can look just as good as natural bricks, without the added expense.

 

As cast stone is so versatile, it has been utilised in a range of different ways since its inception. Originally made to directly replicate or replace real stone, this concrete alternative is now celebrated in its own right as an attractive building material. Read on to find out about some of the top cast stone design trends for 2024, which celebrate all the innovative ways this material can be used.

Personalisation

Homeowners today love to personalise every aspect of their property, where having unique architectural features is something to aspire to. As such, many cast stone projects now focus on customisation so that each client can receive something entirely unique. This is the case for portico installations, window panes and home signage, where modern cast stone manufacturing methods make these personalisation efforts possible.


Textured Finishes

The manufacturing process involved in the creation of cast stone allows for this material to be adorned with a range of different finishes. Traditionally cast stone installations have been finished to replicate smooth real stone, whilst today exciting textural finishes are becoming the norm. These textures add depth and interest to standard cast stone work, building on the personalised nature of each installation.


Authentic Designs

Architects today are also interested in naturalistic finishes when it comes to cast stone work. The authentic pale colour of these bricks can be used to build raw-looking structures that harken back to a historical age of architectural design, where these kinds of installations are bound to appeal to any homeowner.


Thin Profile Slabs

Today’s manufacturing methods also allow for the creation of thin profile cast stone slabs, where these are increasingly sleek and modern compared to real stone pieces. These slabs can be used as pillar caps, window sills or property signage, where these subtle pieces add to the look of an exterior without being overpowering.
