Unique Accent Walls Elevate Your Home’s Interior Design

Kitchen with an interior stone accent wall

Stone accent walls are a big thing. Interior designers are convincing more homeowners to go with stone veneers for their accent wall projects, instead of paint or wallpaper. This is because stone has timeless appeal. And it never seems to go out of style, or fade in popularity.

Some of you may be asking, “What is an accent wall?” This answer sums it up simply. An accent wall is an interior wall that has a different design from the other walls in the room. The color may be unique, or another material could be applied to its surface. The main purpose of an accent wall is to draw attention to a part of the room that seems overlooked, or lacking flair.

A beautiful stone accent wall enhances your home’s design, and increases its value, too. The return-on-investment for stone veneers is exceptionally high when selling your home. Most potential buyers love stone, and consider it a high-end feature when looking at homes.

Are you looking for stone accent wall ideas? Or you can’t decide where it should go in your home? The fireplace is naturally a prime location, but virtually any room can benefit from a stone makeover. Today’s manufactured stone veneers come in so many style options, color choices, and price ranges, you could do almost anything with them. And since they are so lightweight, most stone veneers can be easily applied to interior walls.

Hopefully you’ll get ideas as you continue reading. We’re sharing our favorite accent wall examples and designer-inspired tips with you room-by-room. Let’s start by the fireplace!



Homes with fireplaces have a cozy atmosphere, but when you add stone to the equation, it’s the perfect pairing! A stone fireplace wall contributes so much to your home. It increases comfort and warmth, plus it adds a ton of style.

If your home has a more contemporary vibe, and you’re concerned a stone fireplace could look too rustic or traditional, we’re about to change your mind. The latest stone veneer collections include styles with clean lines, precisely cut rectangular shapes, and a more contemporary color palette – including shades of white, off-white, and gray. This type of stone would add a luxurious element to a sleek natural gas fireplace.

Some homes feature a fireplace in a living area that has exceptionally high ceilings. In this scenario, the perfect pick-me-up is to go sky high. Continue a column of stone all the way up to the ceiling. It becomes an automatic focal point and helps break up the monotony of tall, blank walls.



Stone has been used in bathrooms for centuries due to its durability, beauty, and natural appeal. It makes perfect sense to include a stone accent wall in your bathroom remodel plans. The best place for it is up to you. Behind the vanity, along a side wall, or extending into the shower, stone veneer in even the smallest bathroom can make a big difference.

The textures and shapes of all the different stones bring a sense of serenity to your bathroom, transforming it into an at-home spa. Don’t get worried if the stones get wet, since manufactured stone veneers are made to withstand water and damp environments.



Basements offer endless options when it comes to stone accents. Whether finished or partially-finished, most subterranean spaces have a few sectioned areas, or actual rooms, that could benefit from a basement stone accent wall.

A living area with a flat-screen TV on a blank wall is a great place to start. Install a stacked stone veneer onto the wall featuring the TV, then pick another location in the basement to do a coordinating stone accent feature with the same veneer. If you have a basement bar, or cozy wine cave, these are ideal spots for stone detailing.



Do you dream about a stone feature wall in your bedroom? Turn those dreams into reality with a faux stone accent wall behind your bed, headboard, and nightstands. Create a cozier, comfier sleeping area that feels more inviting and peaceful after a long, exhausting day.

Go rustic for old-world castle vibes. Or choose stone that’s more contemporary for a chic, modern feel. The style choice is yours, and any option will make your bedroom more beautiful and relaxing. If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace in your bedroom, continue the stone accents there for a cohesive look that ties everything together.

Why limit yourself to indoors only? Think outside the house, and extend your creative ideas to outdoor living areas. If you choose a stone that’s similar to what’s used indoors, this creates a more balanced indoor to outdoor design flow, which is good for overall aesthetics.

A stone accent wall along a portion of your patio space adds charm and character. Wrap pergola columns in coordinating stone for an appealing effect that leads to a more unified patio design.
