Decorating with Exposed Stone Walls

Sep 1, 2017

One of the most effective tools when it comes to décor is creating a powerful look by adding color or texture to an accent wall. Usually, most homeowners choose to paint the wall with a bold color, but using natural stone tiles can have an even larger impact and give your space a completely different feel.

Natural stones are available in so many colors, textures, and sizes. They can be incorporated in so many ways in your space beyond the fireplace and help ground your home and give a real sense of durability. Many customers use an exposed stone wall to separate a living room area from a bedroom and add a natural sound insulation.

Small spaces can especially benefit from exposed walls, since it helps create a warm and cozy feeling without making the space feel crowded or claustrophobic. In a bathroom, accenting with stone can work as a natural back splash. An added bonus to using stone wall is that you can get a carefully designed finish that is wipe clean and non-porous, so you won’t suffer from water marks or even mold.

If you’re not ready to commit for a fully exposed stone wall, you can start small by adding this feel to your kitchen. Natural stone back splash are very popular in homes that are looking for that outdoor, country feel. If this is the case in your beautiful home, you can begin adding stone in the kitchen before you commit to a big wall.

It’s important to understand that not all stones are created qual. Rough cut, round edges may give a space a truly country or outdoorsy feel, but marble or granite can add the modern and elegant look you might be going for.

Choosing natural stone for any indoor makeover opens a world of possibilities while creating a link between your home and the world around it.
