What Is Ledgestone?
While you may not recognize its name, there’s almost no doubt in our minds that you’ve at least seen ledgestone before! Sometimes called stacked stone, ledgestone is comprised of different colors and sizes of stone rectangles that are stacked onto a mesh, giving a natural stacked stone appearance. One of our favorite things about ledgestone is the sheer amount of customization and possibility available.
For instance, you can have ledgestone with one to two colors of stone creating the pattern, or you can have a plethora of colors! Additionally, you can choose between a flush ledgestone design or a textured ledgestone design. It all comes down to the aesthetic you’re trying to achieve and your personal preferences. For example, if you’re looking for a modern aesthetic, you could utilize a color scheme of blacks and greys, and a flat surface of uniformly-sized rectangles. For a rustic vibe, you can use different sizes of natural stone that create an uneven surface, giving that timeless and chunky, yet clean early stonework aesthetic.
Uses For Ledgestone
As we said above, one of the reasons ledgestone is such a great choice when deciding on what type of stone you’ll be using for a project is that is is so versatile. This means that you can choose the style of ledgestone that fits your desired style, but it also means that it can be used for a variety of different projects. It’s gorgeous texture and design makes it a perfect stone for any focal point feature.
A great example of a feature that can be elevated by ledgestone is a fireplace. You’re going to likely use stone for said fireplace anyway, so why not choose a versatile and elegant material like ledgestone to make it truly pop!
Beyond focal features like a fireplace, you can use ledgestone to cover walls, both on the exterior and interior of your home. Like we said, ledgestone can add a unique and elegant look, which makes it great for the exterior of your house. Especially if you’re craving a stone exterior while also creating a unique and modern look for your home. When it comes to the interior, ledgestone is commonly used for bathrooms, as it provides a natural, light, and clean finish. That being said, it could also serve perfectly in a kitchen or closed patio, depending on your tastes.
