Create a rustic kitchen design with the help of stone veneers

Stone is a material that’s not that common in interior designs. That’s mostly because it’s not that easy to integrate in any home and it doesn’t match with a lot of other materials. However, when properly used it can help create very inspiring designs and it also creates a special atmosphere. Let’s see how we can use stone veneer in the kitchen. Here are some examples of kitchen designs that might inspire you.

Notice how the stone has been used to create focal elements in the kitchen. You don’t have to cover an entire wall with stone in order to have a beautiful design. You can just choose one part of the kitchen that you think could benefit from this particular material and focus on that.

The most common use of stone veneer is on the walls. It’s an old practice that’s still in use and could look very chic. Again, you don’t have to cover the entire wall but just portions. If you have a larger kitchen you can opt for a medieval-like décor and make some arches for example. The stone would be a very good choice in this case.

You can also use stone for the fireplace in case you have one. If not you can just use it for the stove area and create a rustic décor. However, it can also be used in modern kitchens. Just choose an appropriate type of stone with a simpler look and maybe in a darker color or with a lacquered finish. There are lots of options to choose from and there’s a model for every home. You just need to find the right one and to choose the right combinations of materials, colors and textures. If you don’t trust your instincts ask a professional for help and get some inspiration from these decors.{pictures from here}
