7 Most Popular Uses Of Stacked Stone

February 02, 2024


Stacked stone is an excellent option for a timeless design choice that adds texture and complexity to your structure. Ideal for interior and exterior applications, this finishing material offers outstanding versatility.

When applied as an accent wall, fireplace surround, retaining wall, or the entire front facade of a building, stacked stone elevates a rustic design, enriches a modern space, and enhances a retro vibe. But what is stacked stone exactly, and how can you use some of our most popular products in your space?

What Is Stacked Stone?

You’d never mistake modern stacked stone for the heavy old castle walls. MSI stone veneers feature materials like trimmed stone or porcelain stacked to create lightweight, modular panels in different sizes.

These decorative installations add depth and visual interest to any surface, elevating your overall design. Variations in the color, size, and placement of stones help create an organic pattern that increases dimensionality and creates a welcoming atmosphere.

The Many Benefits of Using Stacked Stone

Whether you choose porcelain or natural stone panels to upgrade your design, you’ll find that these materials offer more than visual appeal. Modular construction allows for easy installation, and stacked stone delivers low-maintenance appeal.

Durable materials are well-suited to indoor and outdoor use. They offer longevity in bustling interior spaces and hold up well in various weather conditions.
