Finding ways to incorporate nature into the interior of homes has been a design trend growing in popularity for many years. From the use of natural stone countertops, house plants, and even other stone fixtures - utilizing these elements of design and materials greatly enhances the look or feel of a room. While countertop surfaces are obviously limited to the kitchen and bathrooms, other uses are necessary in order to generate this natural look within different areas of the home. Adding a unique element to the property, homeowners have been expanding the use of these specific elements for quite some time.
Able to be used both on the wall and as floor tile, natural stone continues to grow in popularity. This has expanded the typical uses to include other factors, including ledgers. Originally designed to encase fireplaces and provide an outdoor “setting” within the interior of a home, this component is also increasing its use in and around a property. Stone ledgers are rising in demand and their use in each of the following areas continues to highlight the natural components of appearance within a design outline.
If you have columns either near an entrance way or within a basement serving as support, consider encasing these with natural stone. Doing so immediately enhances their existence while helping to bring a more natural feel into the space. Multiple color combinations can be used in lieu of a solid paint scheme and the ledgers serve to help break up the space with a more natural feel than simply having visible columns breaking up an open area.
Floor to Ceiling Accent Walls
Used initially in and around those homes which are equipped with a fireplace or wood stove, stone ledgers are becoming more a design component in recent construction projects. Many homeowners have elected to extend their fireplace surroundings up to the ceiling and others are choosing to simply create an accent wall with their use. Again, instead of utilizing a bold or contrasting color to make a room stand out, the use of these stone ledgers accomplishes this feat, in addition to bringing a sense of nature inside the walls of a property.
The versatility of stone ledgers also makes them a popular option for design components. Able to be used inside beyond the typical kitchen and bathroom placements, natural stones can also help create entertainment spaces on a property’s exterior as well. By either surrounding outdoor columns, as a patio, walkway, or in creation of an outdoor kitchen - the expanded uses for these items make them a solid option for any space.
