how does honed stacked stone compare to multi-finish stacked stoneNovember 15, 2018
Stacked stone ledger panels can quickly transform a space, whether it’s indoors or out. There’s nothing like natural stone to add character and a sense of upscale permanence to a structure or a room’s interior. It’s incredibly versatile, too. Use it to face a rustic outdoor fire feature, or choose one of the more subtle, delicate options for a refined interior fireplace or accent wall.
The reason for this versatility is the different finishes available in our popular stone panels. In a honed finish, natural stone is cross-cut to enhance its coloration and veining; it produces a matte, flat texture. The split-face finish is just how it sounds: rugged and rough-textured. Both types are perfectly at home indoors and outdoors, in any type of decor, and there are many different types of stone and colors to choose from.
However, combining both types of finishes can create a look that’s unique and stunning. That’s what you get with multi-finish stacked stone: the best of both worlds. Cross-cut honed stones are combined randomly with rough-textured split-face or even pattern-textured stone, sometimes with varying depths for a 3D surface. The combo can include the same stone with different finishes, or stones with complementary shades as well as textures.
We’ve put together a roundup of popular stacked stone ledger panels so you can compare, visualize, and be inspired. How will you use them in your own home?
With so many beautiful options, you may wonder how to pick your kitchen style. If your taste is more traditional, Calacatta Cressa can bring you the look of classic white marble with soft gray veins.
