Top 2022 Manufactured Stone Trends
If you’re a designer, builder, or contractor, it’s important to stay up to date on the latest trends in manufactured stone and residential architecture. And if you’re a homeowner who wants to remodel, it’s always helpful to see new, inspiring designs and ideas.
Let’s be completely honest. The previous two years have been unlike any other time in our recent history. Everyone spent more time at home, and we all realized just how important it is to have a cozy living space where we can relax and rejuvenate.
Creating an at-home comfort zone to unwind and de-stress is important for our overall health and well-being. It’s no surprise, then, that manufactured stone is an on-the-rise star in the world of residential design trends. When manufactured stone is used in architecture and design, it provides a peaceful, tranquil vibe that beautifully mimics the calming harmony of nature. A stone accent wall, fireplace, or backsplash is soothing, stylish, and timeless.

Keep It Simple
Life is complicated enough. Don't overthink your home’s design with an overabundance of materials, colors, or architectural elements. Keep it simple to maintain a calm, cohesive flow from interior living spaces to outdoor areas. If you’re thinking of doing a stone accent wall in your dining room or den, continue the look outside to your front porch or back patio.
Casa di Sassi’s EZ Ledge, Kwik Stack, and Ledgestone profiles feature simple, linear stone shapes, and are available in classic gray and beige color palettes for a nature-inspired look. These timeless profiles will never go out of style, and they’re the perfect balance of symmetrical lines and irregular textures. Blending simplicity with sophistication is a huge trend right now, and these beautiful stones do this to a tee, both indoors and outside.
Your kitchen or living room may have a contemporary white, gray, and black color scheme, but this doesn’t mean everything has to be white, gray, and black. Do something fun and unexpected around your kitchen island’s exterior or on a back accent wall. Go rustic with an old-world stone style in warm earth tones. Casa di Sassi’s Fieldstone or Old World profiles would fit the bill perfectly.
Or if your home’s architectural style leans more toward classic – Tudor, Craftsman, Cape Cod, etc. – select a contemporary looking manufactured stone for some visual distinction. Whether you’re adding veneer to its exterior or interior, stone in a white or off-white color palette (Casa di Sassi Niveo or Bianco) would coordinate well with rich wood tones, warm siding colors, and darker paint choices.
Indoor Spa & Outdoor Sanctuary
Manufactured stone is popping up in all sorts of places. It adds beauty and value to your home wherever you decide to have it installed. Fireplaces, accent walls, and front porches are popular application spots, but you don't have to limit yourself to these specific areas.
Spa-like bathrooms are a growing trend right now. Creating a personal, private space where you can take a break and pamper yourself helps reduce stress. Adding stone to a side wall or behind a freestanding tub brings nature’s serenity indoors for the ultimate spa experience.
Do you like relaxing outdoors? Renovate your backyard space to create a soothing sanctuary where you and your family can chill out in style. Incorporate manufactured stone into your exterior lounge areas for peaceful outdoor vibes. Stone fire pit areas are a popular residential design trend because they can be used all year, even as temperatures cool down in fall and winter.
