How is Translucent Stone Used?
The best way to enjoy the striking beauty of a translucent stone slab is by backlighting the piece. Once installed on the wall, as a countertop, or in any number of ways, the stone creates a one-of-a-kind lighting fixture. The dramatic appearance can give any kitchen, bar, office, restaurant, or patio an ambiance of luxury and class.
How is a Translucent Slab Backlit?
Before the stone is installed, professionals must install the lights under your stone slab. The types of lights can vary but are typically LEDs due to their proven longevity. The lights are carefully placed and secured to ensure they're hidden from view, and your stones will then be attached on top. Even though the stones are securely installed, the lights below can still be accessed if an issue occurs.
