Uses for Denver Natural Stone Ledgers Extend Beyond Backsplash


May 1, 2019

Incorporating natural stone surfaces into your home is no longer limited to only the kitchen and bathrooms. While these two areas may have allowed for stone surfaces to infiltrate a home sparking unique designs, style, functional uses, and a long lasting material - they have been expanding their coverage areas ever since.

There are many different types of ledger stone that is now being used in living rooms, offices, and even to enhance outdoor entertainment spaces. From a border pattern to a full wall, these natural stone surfaces are creating an impact in modern design. Available in both smooth finishes or a rough, more rustic and natural looking completed design, the color options and availability are seemingly limitless. Home owners can pick exactly the look they are hoping to achieve and stone ledgers bring it to life.

Office/Living Room
To create a modern feel in any room, use natural stone ledgers against a solid wall surface. Typically, a thin stacked stone will be implemented resulting in a rough finish but unique look for the area.

Implemented as either full room coverage or just to materialize an accent wall, the stone ledgers use outside of a normal area can seem like a natural fit. Homeowners can immediately update or enhance any room with the use of these unique features.

Fireplace/Fire Pit
Inside or out, ledgers can be used to block in a fireplace or modernize the look of an outdoor fire pit. A naturally inviting gathering place, these ledgers are sure to set your fireplace or fire pit apart from any that you have ever seen.

Depending on the finish and colors selected, fireplace ledger stones create either a modernized feel with smooth, bright and often contrasting colors - while rough, darker stones make for a more natural look. 

Shower
Ledger stones have long been utilized in the bathroom as backsplash pieces but are now being implemented on the walls of many showers. Often used to create a spa feel inside your own home, but those who love the look of ledgestone need to understand the cleaning requirements associated with their use.

While a smooth finish is easiest for the shower, rough edges with different angles and areas can take more time to clean. While requiring a little more attention to detail, complete installation of a ledger stone wall is not out of the question and the final product design benefits often outweigh the need for a little more detailed cleaning.
