Character is the stand-out aspect of stone in home interiors.  Choosing to install stone can change a ho-hum wall into an amazing feature.  For those with a more traditional sense of design, you may want stone interior accents that give an old world look to the room.

For a more modern taste, stacked stone works well for contemporary spaces.  There is a distinctly modern edge to this look and it provides added texture for more minimalist interiors.  The linear quality of stacked stone is an appealing modern look.

Texture is an important element of interior design and stone is one sure way to incorporate this into your home.  Add dimension and raise the texture quotient of your home with walls, kitchen islands, fireplace surrounds and entryway columns of stone.

Stone can be added anywhere in the home, from the entry to the kitchen and from the fireplace to entire walls.  The fireplace surround and hearth are likely places for stone accents.  Feature walls offer a strong focal point for a room.  Stone interior accents in the kitchen bring charm and texture to this space.

Installing natural stone can be a challenge, logically and financially.  The weight of natural stone requires additional architectural support and the cost can be prohibitive for some.  Veneers of natural or synthetic stone are at least one third the cost of natural stone and weigh significantly less, thus requiring no added structural support.

Take ordinary walls to new levels and add stone to unexpected places as well.  Install stone veneer in the powder room, add stone columns to an open space, or create an artistic display of stone veneer tiles in the family room or master bedroom.  Stone interior accents will rock your home with style, adding texture, character and dimension.
