What questions should I ask myself?1. Where will the stone be laid? If it’s going somewhere where it will be prone to marks and staining, a darker colour might be more forgiving than a lighter one. If it will be laid around a pool, slip-resistance and resistance to salt attack are vital. If it’s going into a curved area, crazy paving would be ideal as it can easily be designed to follow curved lines.2. What about the style of my house? With traditional architecture, a sandstone paver might be best suited. For a modern build, a sleek bluestone or brushed grey limestone would look fantastic.3. Is there a limited set down? ‘Set down’ refers to the height between the level of the substrate and the adjoining area left to lay the tile or paver. For example, with a 30-millimetre set down, your paver can be no more than 30 millimetres thick in order to lie flush with the surface. If the spot where you’re laying the tiles has a limited set down, you’ll need a stone product with a thin profile, such as split stone.

The owners were closely involved with every design decision and Reason credits their architectural vision and exacting tastes to the overall success of the build, describing it as a team effort.“Our clients, with a very keen eye for interiors and finishes, steered this project to the beauty you see today,” he says. “They hand selected the recycled timber that is used throughout this home with the builder and sourced it from Brisbane.”Recycled ironbark timber: Kennedy’s
