Interior Stone Veneer:
Making Your Home Rock
Though most people think of a home’s exterior surface when it comes to stone finishes, applications of interior stone veneer are becoming an increasingly popular trend in custom home design. It’s a surprisingly simple way to add interest to walls, fireplaces, showers, stairwells and staircases, and even center kitchen islands, setting off the spaces to make them focal points and conversation pieces that will make your home feel as though it truly is one of a kind.
If you’re not quite ready to wall off a whole room in interior stone veneer, choose one accent wall and cover it from floor to ceiling or use it on a partial wall. Despite what you might think, installing interior stone veneer won’t make your home feel cold or cavelike. In fact, a stone finish makes a great alternative to paint or wallpaper, adding ambiance and sophistication at the same time as it captures a sense of old world charm; and because of the many colors, textures, and patterns available, your options are almost endless and can be customized to fit the style of virtually any home. Many homeowners love the look of stone in their entryways, libraries, bathrooms, and gathering spaces such as living rooms and family rooms, welcoming the versatility afforded by the many types of stone—whether they’re hoping to create a space full of rustic romanticism or one that exudes modern elegance.
How Rocks Rock
Unlike bulky, fabricated stone or thickly-cut stacked stones, interior stone veneer is lightweight and easily installed. It’s also durable, versatile, and easy to maintain—all of which make it extremely attractive to anyone looking for ways to update their home’s interior without taking on a major project that will be labor intensive and require a substantial investment.
