If you’re searching for Stone Accent Wall Ideas, you’ve come to the right place. The foremost Architects, Interior Designers, and Custom Builders in the country regularly rely on Surface Shop’s collection of natural stone veneers to create stunning stone accent walls.
An often overlooked, but important detail to complete your Surface Shop feature wall stone installation is using the right kind of lighting.
First, ensure your lighting is low-voltage and downward facing, so it “washes” down the wall, as opposed to a high wattage spot-facing. This will give your installation maximum texture and dimension. The principle is simple: If you use a spot-lighting, your wall will look flat; downward facing lighting on the other hand, which washes down the wall, highlights dimension and texture.
Secondly, ensure all adjacent trim sits even with the thickest part of your stone veneer. This will ensure that the stone sits on the wall as a finish and does not show proud of any wood trim, which can create an unappealing look.
Lastly, if there are corners, make sure you use our highly calibrated corners to give your returns a beautiful finish from all angles.
A true, natural stone feature wall gives any space, interior or exterior, a sense of elegance, authenticity, and beauty that is often unmatched by manmade materials. Think of the use of natural stone for countertops – The depth exhibited by marble, quartz, or granite cannot be matched by man-made products like quartz. No matter how good we are at manufacturing, we simply are unable to reproduce the natural beauty found in natural products.

While design is generally a subjective experience (what looks good to you vs what looks good to others), what many great design professionals know that the average person does not is that we all know bad design when we see it, and we all know good design when we see it.
Good design seeks to offer harmony, bad design disregards it. This means that colors shouldn't clash, and should ultimately conform to a grand color scheme for the project.
Good designs works with the natural habitat, not against it. Truly great architects that design from the ground up first spend time on the land, understanding the local habit, the vantage points, and the colors that surround the future property. She will then design to find harmony with these key attributes. Bad design often disregards the surrounding -- That might be a hyper modern box structure in a classic neighborhood, for example, or a flashy colored home in a beautiful woodsy area.
