If you are looking for a way to give an artistic, unique finish to the interior walls of your home, ledgestone may be the answer. Whether you are renovating or starting from scratch, ledgestone panels can provide a simple, cost-effective and efficient solution to turning any plain, dull wall into a display of architectural beauty.
Beautiful Stone Look
Ledgestone, also known as stacked stone, is sheets of stone cladding designed to provide the look of full stones, without using full-stone pieces. It is called stacked stone because it has the appearance of stones that are staggered in depth. The sheets are made from thin pieces of stone that are attached to a wire mesh backing, which can be attached to interior and exterior walls or floors to give the appearance of being constructed from stone. It has the look of full stones, but it is lighter and easier to install than full bricks or stones.
Wide Range of Uses
Ledgestone can adhere to almost any type of existing wall and, depending on the finish, it can also be used as flooring. The most common place ledgestone is used is on a fireplace wall, which gives the appearance of a stone fireplace without having to actually tear out the existing fireplace and install a new, full-stone one. It also is quickly becoming a popular choice for the bathroom. When used on the bathroom walls, it gives the room a rustic, yet clean and unique look.
One of the best benefits of stacked stone is its durability. Ledgestone is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, which means it is ideal for areas such as the bathroom that experience a great deal of moisture and humidity.
Unique and Classic Designs
From a clean and modern look to the look of old world charm, stacked stone can be used with almost any design theme. Although the most common stone used to make ledgestone is quartz or slate, it is available in a range of shapes, sizes, colors and stone types. Keep in mind that although it is thinner than full-sized stones, ledgestone is made from natural stone, so the texture and color may vary throughout each panel. However, the variation in texture provides a dramatic look and creates an immediate focal point in the bathroom, bedroom or kitchen.
In most situations, ledgestone is made from the waste on production sites, which makes an ideal choice if you are looking for ways to make your home eco-friendly. It is important to keep in mind that ledgestone is heavy, so it should be used in moderation in areas that may cause damage to finished pieces, such as sinks, mirrors and other fixtures.
