Stone Veneer for Walls

Either as an accent piece or to compliment a design, interior masonry veneer is expertly crafted to mimic the look of natural stone but with better performance and added benefits. Like natural stone, interior masonry veneer comes in several textures, colors, sizes and shapes to complement any aesthetic. Manufactured stone veneer is not load-bearing, which means it's easier to install on interiors and significantly less expensive compared to natural stone.

Whether you’re using it for fireplaces, accent walls, in the kitchen or somewhere else, interior masonry veneer is a terrific option to improve the look and feel of a space.

In this article, we’ll share some of the benefits of using masonry veneer for interior walls. Then, we’ll show you some examples of interior masonry veneer installations to inspire your next design.

The Top Benefits of Interior Masonry Veneer

From cost and maintenance to versatility and more, there are many benefits to choosing masonry veneer interior walls:

1. Cost-Effective

Interior masonry veneer costs significantly less than natural stone, which makes it the perfect choice for budget-conscious homeowners and designers. And, thanks to advanced engineering and material selection in the manufacturing process, masonry veneer retains its appearance and performance now and into the future.

2. Low Maintenance

You don’t have to use special cleaning supplies or worry about arduous maintenance when using masonry veneer for interior walls. Plus, when you select a manufacturer like Creative Mines, you get the peace of mind that comes with a 50-year limited warranty.

3. Easy Installation

Interior veneer stone can be installed on almost every surface, including brick, cement, metal and wood.

4. Lightweight

Interior masonry veneer is incredibly lightweight, which makes it easy and less expensive to ship and install. Plus, with Creative Mines’ expertly packaged palettes, there’s even less waste from broken or damaged stones.

5. Trendy

Interior masonry veneer isn’t relegated to just traditional stone aesthetics. From brick to aged wood appearance, veneer can be manufactured with the latest trends in mind —- satisfying both design and regional preferences.

6. Versatile

Like natural stone, interior masonry veneer comes in various textures, shapes, colors and sizes to fit almost every interior motif.

As the same material the Romans used on icons like the Colosseum, you can rest easy knowing your interior masonry veneer will stand the test of time.

10 Beautiful Design Examples of Interior Masonry Veneer

Now that you know the top benefits of interior masonry veneer let’s see it in action. Often, seeing is believing, and that’s definitely the case with masonry veneer from Creative Mines.

At Creative Mines, we’re known for our high-quality interior masonry veneer, white-glove customer service, gorgeous designs and relentless attention to detail. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Here are six stunning examples of our interior stone in action:

1. Craft an Opulent Fireplace with Interior Masonry Veneer

This gorgeous fireplace features Craft® Split Modular in the color Powder. The interior masonry veneer does an excellent job of drawing the eye toward the flickering flame and oversized art, which creates an unmistakable elegance in this upscale den.

2. Powerfully Comforting Masonry Veneer Accent Wall in Master Bedroom

Craft Orchard Limestone - Whitegold

A distinct feature of utilizing masonry veneer on the interior is perhaps surprising — its comfort. Rock and stone are not often considered in such a way, and using these materials on the exterior of homes, and, historically, the great castles and cathedrals, has been a way to show and provide strength. That said, when stone comes indoors, it projects a different kind of strength — the strength of comfort.

In this lovely master bedroom setup, white-painted wood is used for the ceiling and the trims with tall and large windows, all anchored by a supremely comforting accent wall of masonry veneer featuring Craft Orchard Limestone in the color Whitegold by Creative MInes. Studded with a four-poster bed and matching dark wood furniture, the wall provides everything a master bedroom should be — elegant comfort.

3. A Great Stone Wall for a Great Room

In this example utilizing Craft Foothill Rubble in the color Toasted, the magnificence of a masonry veneer accent wall in a great room brings home the outstanding aesthetics of interior masonry veneer walls. Imagine if this same wall were white, like its sister walls. Would the room have the same presence? Provide the same comfort, strength and beauty?

There is always a delicate balance in interior design. When there is too much of something or not enough, it can throw the equilibrium off. Adding just a touch of masonry veneer greatly elevates the overall aesthetic of the room, which translates into the overall feel. It is a truly marvelous example of utilizing masonry veneer on the interior to significantly upgrade all positive aspects of great room interior design. The architect's choice to wrap the stone veneer wall with corners provides the authentic appearance of a structural natural stone wall.
