What better way of breathing new life into your bathroom or indeed any room of the home than by hand-making your very own sublime-quality stone floor mat?

As something of an entrance feature, an addition to the bathroom or even for use in an outdoor living space, you’ll find that nothing does the job better than natural stone. Create a decorative floor mat for the living room or a unique way of setting off the kitchen’s décor – chances are you’ll find yourself putting a few together in various shapes and sizes to use all over the home.

In terms of what you’ll need to get started, just a few basic supplies are all that’s needed to knock out these genuinely knockout mats:

  2. Smooth Ocean or River Stones (Porous, Not Slick or Polished)
  3. Waterproof Clear Silicone Sealer
  4. Plastic Drop Cloth Or Old Shower Curtain

That’s really all you’ll need – no heavy tools, no electrical equipment and really no DIY skills required! It’s the kind of craft project where you really cannot go wrong as the whole idea is to come up with something 100% unique and 100% random every time!

It’s also the kind of project that’s safe to get the whole family involved with – why not make a few extra to be given away as gifts?

      Talk to a store that sells tile – they have the details on installation on all of it.
      Listen to their REASONS that certain materials are better to be used.
      They probably have tile that looks like river stone – and if you’re doing an entire floor, there’s good reasons to use that: 1. The layout will be done for you. 2. The height of the stone will be consistent. 3. Installation will be done to last.

      My friend has been a tileman for over 40 years and he has the stories of people ‘doing it their way’ when they don’t know the reasons to do it right – some choose to ignore those reasons. Using the right materials is an important step.
