Beautiful interior stone wall cladding for your home.

Rugged stone walls add a nice new dimension to your home interiors!

Plain and uninteresting walls are a thing of the past. Most homeowners today prefer having customised wall designs that add to the character of the room. As statement walls are a hit, interior stone wall cladding is a much-favoured option with homeowners, owing to their rustic appeal.

What exactly is the stone cladding in interior design?

Stone cladding is a decorative surface, a thin facade of natural or artificial material, placed on top of the basic concrete layer in modern constructions. Stone-clad walls are lighter than normal walls. Natural stones or stone-like materials like veneer are commonly used for natural stone wall cladding in interior design.

How is stone cladding applied to the walls?

There are two methods commonly used to apply stone cladding to the walls. The first method is the Direct Adhesion Installation method, primarily used for natural stones. In this method, a cement mortar is typically used to apply the stone cladding to the walls. The second method is the Spot Bonding Installation method. The wet adhesives in this method cover only 10% of the surface area to allow for gaps and air pockets between the cladding layer and the wall; due to this, the chances of water staining go down.

How do you clean walls with stone cladding?

Since we are talking about interior stone wall cladding, the cleaning method used for such walls should ideally be less invasive. Interior stone-clad walls are less susceptible to dust and stains, hence the cleaning material can involve only water and a cloth. For more rigorous stains and hard-to-get-off dust, the detergent to be used will depend upon the type of stone which has been used for interior stone wall cladding.

Natural stone wall cladding looks great in pretty much any part of the house. Take a look at these 10 stone cladding installations for inspiration.

The Brick Wall

Brick walls are among the most common looks that homeowners prefer when it comes to interior stone wall cladding design. In smaller apartments, the wall behind the TV unit is perfect for making a style statement with stone cladding. The colour and texture added by the stone ensure that the wall design requires almost nothing else.

Stone Wall Cladding For An Urbane Look

Red brick wall cladding is versatile in terms of the final look. With modern homes, especially bachelor pads, a stone-clad wall makes the space look very urbane and sophisticated. A spare wall in the kitchen, like the one here, can be transformed simply by the application of cladding.

Stone Wall Cladding Design For The Dining Area

For an open dining and living space, a common wall needs to seamlessly blend in. The light grey stone cladding gives the wall a beautiful soft texture and provides a beautiful backdrop for the cabinets, a backsplash for the counter and a background for the wall decor.

Stone-Clad Balcony Wall

The use of rugged stone walls in the design of the exterior part of your home is always a great idea. Balconies with stone cladding seem more connected to the outdoors, and the wall design pretty much sets the tone for the rest of the space.
