If you’ve taken a look at Provence Slabs by Belgard, you know that there’s a lot to love about these versatile hardscaping materials. Amongst many other benefits, NJ homeowners are loving the fact that they’re able to choose from a rich and vibrant color palette in order to find the perfect fit for their unique project needs.
In fact, Provence Slabs from Belgard are actually designed and manufactured with innovative Satura color technology. This new technology makes it simple to create a look that looks exactly like natural stone, both now and in the future.
Now all you have to do is narrow down your options and decide on which of the three colors offered within the Provence collection is right for you. This guide will help you take a closer look at your choices so that you can make a selection with total confidence.
The Importance of Color
What’s the big deal with picking the perfect color, anyway? All three of the unique color options available from Belgard’s Provence Slab collection are stunningly beautiful, so wouldn’t you be just as happy with one of them as you would be with another?
Well, that depends on a few things. True, Belgard is known for offering impeccably gorgeous colors, but one may be a bitter fit for you than the others. In order to make the right choice, you’ve got to consider the overall look, theme, or tone you’re trying to create withering your property, and you need to think about how the colors will interact with the shades and hues that are present in your existing landscaping and architectural features.
Selecting colors that align with your goals, tastes and existing property features will make you much happier in the long run, and will give your property a lot more curb appeal.
Choosing a color that clashes against what you’ve already got, on the other hand, can actually take away from property value. If you’re not quite sure about which color family to select, we suggest that you take the following steps:
- Talk to a Professional – Consider a session with a professional landscaping or hardscaping designer in order to get their expert input on the right color scheme for your property.
- Visit a Showroom – It’s smart to take the time to visit a local showroom in order to see how the colors of Provence Slabs actually look in real-life. This will allow you to examine the colors at all angles and to see how they look when used for actual landscaping/hardscaping purposes.
- Request a Sample – Reach out to Belgard in order to request color swatches or samples be sent to you. Hold the swatches up against other landscaping and hardscaping features throughout your property in order to see how the hues interact with one another.
- Use Online Design Tools – Try working with online design tools like Belgard’s Design Studio or Project Visualizer in order to see how specific colors would look within your space.
A Closer Look at the 3 Colors of Provence Slabs
Now that you know how to make a smart decision about the colors you choose for your Provence Slabs, we’re ready to dive in and explore the 3 color families that are actually available from this fabulous collection:
1. Black Hills
This incredible color family is named after the Black Hills in the Dakotas. This stunning geographic area is well known for its rolling hills, mountains and gorgeous rock formations in various shades of chestnut browns, warm beiges and soft tans.
Just like a visit to Western South Dakota, the Black Hills color collection for Belgard Provence slabs will not disappoint. You will quickly fall in love with the lush shades that seem to flow into and through one another, each adding their own pop of color but without overshadowing the others.
The hues are truly in harmony with one another and look extremely naturalistic. This particular color family is absolutely perfect for homeowners looking to create a rustic yet sophisticated outdoor living space.
The natural hues make it easy to pull off a “woodsy” vibe or romantic charm, and the warmth of the shading creates a cozy and welcoming environment for gathering with family and friends.
2. Niagara Gray
Next, we’ll explore the quiet sophistication of the Niagara Gray color family available through Belgard’s Provence slab collection. Along the border of New York and Canada lays one of natures most incredible sights: Niagara Falls.
These falls are famed for their eternal mists. This mist, in fact, creates a mystical and magical feeling around the falls, allowing for unique and meaningful experiences for all who visit this popular spot. The Niagara Gray collection plays upon this mystic feeling and misty coloring.
You’ll notice that the collection features a soft and subtle yet striking and mesmerizing combination of shades of gray and blue gray. As the colors swirl into one another, they highlight the natural beauty of the slabs and spark the imagination.
The gray slabs are so sophisticated and chic while simultaneously being totally low-key and minimalistic. This makes them perfectly suited for a wide range of styles and applications.
Many homeowners like the look of these slabs for poolside decks and patio lounging. They can also be used to create a classic European vibe for your outdoor living space.
3. Shenandoah Blue
It’s time to travel south of here and “visit” the stunningly beautiful vistas offered by the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Shenandoah Valley in West Virginia. Although Belgard’s Provence Slab collection offers the Shenandoah Blue color family, it’s important to realize that Blue is not the only hue available in this particular style.
Much like the Blue Ridge Mountains, blue is a highlighted shade that is complimented by many others. Early in the morning at sunrise, or late in the evening as the sun sets, the mountains fall into shadow and appear to be a subtle, serene and truly magnificent shade of blue.
Of course, the illusion of this color is only accentuated by the rich browns, tans and grays surrounding it. After looking at the Shenandoah Valley, it’s very easy to see where the inspiration for this collection came from. The contrast of different shades and colors all working together as one makes it easy to establish a creative and uniquely beautiful outdoor living space that suits your individual sense of style.
We love the idea of surrounding a swimming pool or hot tub with the gorgeous slabs, or to create the feeling of upscale country living by using this color palette for an outdoor kitchen “floor.”
