Stone veneer can be used on interior walls to create an authentic look that's reminiscent of a historic home. Interior stone is an impressive design choice that provides a high degree of visual impact. If you love the look of stone and want to find unique ways to add veneer to your interior design, here are some of the latest products to consider.

New Interior Design Options

Veneer, also referred to as facade stone, is crafted with a thinner cut, making it suitable for areas such as interior walls that cannot support a heavy amount of weight. The most common applications of stone veneer products include accent walls, backsplashes, and fireplace surrounds. Stone veneer can be made of real stone and cut about an inch thick, or it can be designed to mimic the look of real stone. The latest manufactured options provide increased design flexibility and a wider range of colors than working with strictly natural materials.

Unique Look of Natural Stone in Your Home

Stone veneer can be placed on interior walls, columns or pillars, kitchen and bathroom backsplashes, island bases, or anywhere you crave a natural look. If you love the natural beauty and rustic character of stone, a stacked stone product may work best for you. The natural beauty of stacked stone guarantees a one-of-a-kind look that cannot be replicated. The rich, natural shades of grays and browns, combined with the natural cleft that results from the splitting of the stone, add textural variety to your interior design. Quartzite and sandstone options are suitable for damp areas of your home, including kitchens and bathrooms.

The Next Generation of Stone-Look Designs

Stone-look designs that are customized for wall applications are readily available in a range of modern colors and sizes. To replicate the feel of a historic-style home, the new Brickwork line offers the look of distressed masonry with rough edges and authentic visual texture. The Ambassador line also offers a modern twist on facade stone with linear sizing, featuring the latest trends in darker neutrals. Just the right amount of characteristic stone veining is added to the imaged mosaic tiles to create a look that's modern and fresh.

With its natural beauty and high-end look, natural stone is a highly coveted design element. Stone veneer functions well in a variety of spots where real stone would not, allowing you to create a stunning and unique focal point in any space.
