Natural stone is a great way to bring color, texture, and detail to a room. It can be used for more than just countertops. In fact, stone accent walls are an exciting trend in home design.
Stone can be added to any wall in your home to make a statement. They can be made of either natural or manufactured stone depending on the homeowners preference and budget
Bathrooms are the most obvious and common place to create a stone accent wall. The combination of stone and water creates a relaxing spa like feel. It’s also a great way to bring interest to half baths or guest baths. The subtle texture and sparkle of stone adds depth and interest to any space, but can shine particularly well in a modern bathroom design.
After bathrooms, the next most common application for stone accent walls is on the exterior of the home. After all, stone has been used for centuries to create human dwellings. It gives a sense of strength and stability to the look of a home. Depending on the kind of stone chosen it can look very regal and sophisticated or rustic and warm. Pairing stone with other types of siding can create interest that really sets the home apart from its neighbors.
