Incorporating Ledger Stone into Your Design

If you are looking to incorporate the natural beauty and texture of real stone into your home, look no further than ledger stone –a natural stone that renders a warm and rustic aesthetic.

The stacking of ledger stone provides a three-dimensional look that adds a new textural and visual component to the space. Plus, because it is a natural element, there are a variety of colors available to complement any space.

“This is such an appealing material because it is so versatile,” says Normandy Designer Ann Stockard.

Due to the color and surface of this cut material, ledger stone can be used to add contrast, focal points, accents or a natural element to the space.

“This component is commonly used in fireplace surrounds, columns, on accent walls or within a niche in the wall,” added Ann. “However, I do not recommend placing it near water or in a splash zone. It has a rough and porous surface that can be difficult to clean.”
